[closed] Login to RTC using server-side Java API

I would like to login to RTC with some specified credentials using server-side Java API.
I need to insert this code in an Event Handler in order to perform an action with a different user from the one who has caused the plugin to run.
I have already done such a thing using client-side plain Java API; is this possible using server-side classes (from RTC SDK) as well?
I am working with RTC 5.0.2.

Luca,
working on server side you are already connected to RTC. I think you want to CHANGE your credential as event handler work as "admin" user that could not be inserted in any roles. If this is what you want you have to use IImpersonationService to change credentials when you perform actions like save work item or other.

Michele,
this is what I actually did.
The impersonation works fine, but it has one limitation: you can only "impersonate" somebody else only if you have JazzAdmins privileges.
This makes it unusable in most cases.
It would be nice to find a way to programmatically login to the RTC server using the SDK.

Yes, I know. But if you work with event handler you already have it as the class is triggered by admin user. The problem is with pre-conditions and follow-up action. I think it would be really useful if impersonation will be extended to other privileged users, but by now I've seen no progress on this. I don't think another login makes sense because in this case you are already connected: it would only brings to further problems.

Well, on server side exists a "trick" to impersonate ADMIN user, which of course has JazzAdmins privileges: TeamServiceContext#runAsAdmin ;)

Cheers.
