Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-622) sysinfo incorrectly requires permission on Derby jar files
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2005 13:37:06 GMT
sysinfo incorrectly requires permission on Derby jar files

         Key: DERBY-622
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-622
     Project: Derby
        Type: Bug
  Components: Security, Tools  
    Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner
    Priority: Minor
     Fix For:

Running the test derbynet/sysinfo.java requires this permission in derby_tests.policy, in
order to read the jar files.

permission java.io.FilePermission "${csinfo.codedir}${/}*", "read"

But according to the Java security specs:

'Note: code can always read a file from the same directory it's in (or a subdirectory of that
directory); it does not need explicit permission to do so.'

Probably means a privileged block is required when accessing the contents of the jar files
in sysinfo
