Subject Re: Dynamic Security Configuration of users and roles
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2008 00:37:09 GMT

There's both authentication and authorization to take into account. If you
want to take your direct programmatic approach via JMX, consider creating
security plug-ins through which you can both authenticate and authorize.
Maybe use the existing security plug-ins as models. Extend
AuthorizationBroker so that you can override and actually implement the
SecurityAdminMBean methods. Then have your plug-in register it with the
MBeanServer. Question: how do you intend to persist your updates so that
they stick if and when you do bounce the broker?
