SUP user authentication for web services


Hi there.

Has anyone in the comunity had any experience with building Web Service based Mobile Business Object (MBO) in SUP 1.5.2. We have built a mobile application for a blackberry device which consumes two ERP web services. The application deploys successfully and runs on the blackberry device just fine. However, untill now the user credentials needed to authenticate a consumer to a web service has been hard-coded into the mobile business object. This, from an accountability point of view, is not an acceptible model (i.e. all mobile users would be logging in to the ERP backend with 1 common user ID).

Has anyone had any experience and could suggest an an alternative solution to this that would support accountability i.e. map SUP users to ERP users, trusted connections etc. and is this possible with SUP 1.5.2?
