Sun Application Server Drop Privs Apr 24 2007 12:11AM

We're using Sun Java System Application Server 8.1. I know
the software is designed so it can be run as a non-root user,
but right now, we have to run it as root since it binds to ports
80/tcp and 443/tcp.

I've hit SunSolve, docs.sun.com, and Google, but can't seem to
find out how to get it to drop privs to a non-root user after
grabbing the low-numbered ports. Anyone know how to do this?
I'd rather (a) not have this monster run as root if it doesn't
have to and (b) not have the web app developers have to get a
sys admin to make changes as root for them whenever they want
to tweak some file.
