we are in planning for Converting ASP.NET application in SharePoint 2010 and this application use forms based authentication using Sql Membership provider.First thing here is we can not get rid of existing database and convert it to SharePoint list as this database is used by other application in organization so i am thinking of Configure SharePoint site using forms based authentication and use BCS to get data from there Backend Sql database.

Now i want to pass current logged user(FBA) to BCS entity to get data based on current this possible ? if yes please advise

Thanks Ronak
