Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3327) SQL roles: Implement authorization stack
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2008 18:58:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3327?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12561772#action_12561772

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-3327:

> Looking closely at SET ROLE I see it doesn't require a authorization
> stack (within a SQLSessionContext) because it only modifies the
> current role, it never pushes a new cell onto the authorization stack.

Yes, thats how I understand it also, it just needs access to the top element
somehow, but does not need to see a stack.

> So I'm coming to thinking that the initial patch is basically correct,
> with the exception that there is no need to have a stack of
> activations or to link an activation to its caller. It seems to me the
> current stacking of StatementContexts has the required information
> already, upon execution the role of the activation needs to be taken
> from the role of the activation of currently executing statement (the
> most recently pushed StatementContext) or the lcc if there is no
> currently statement being executed.

Thanks, I will investigate this.
