Subject Re: JMS authentication in the embedded web-console
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2007 15:33:22 GMT
Just as an afterthought: I'll need the webconsole to allow only
non-modifying actions for a certain group of users. F.e. it should be
possible to view the contents of a queue but not to purge it.
While a solution to this is rather straightforward, namely to use the
JEE-role based security model (isUserInRole) it's not exactly
configuration friendly. We'd need some way to have a 'default' way
that doesn't check for anything.
Another way'd be to rely onto the activemq-security and let it decide
if a user may purge a queue or not. However this'll need to be able to
pass the user to activemq. Anyone running such a configuration?

Let me know what you think on this subject
