Does your container log say anything?

The role is what stands out for me since I've never used it. I guess those
role properties in the JAAS config are supposed to make all that work, but
I would guess that's the culprit if it's binding.

I would try turning up logging for the JAAS module at the container layer.
That can be tricky of course, but is usually possible.
