Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3327) SQL roles: Implement authorization stack
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 20:58:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3327?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12570007#action_12570007

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-3327:
--------------------------------------

Thanks for the patch, Dag. As usual, I don't have much to add that's substantive. Just a couple
points:

o I understand your misgivings about the management of the current schema. The existing code
is pretty organic at this point.

o There are a couple places in the LCC where you lookup the session context based on the Activation.
It seems to me that a method like the following might be a useful abstraction:

public SQLSessionContext    getCurrentSQLSessionContext( Activation caller )
{
		if (caller == null ) { return getTopLevelSQLSessionContext(); }
		else { return caller.getNestedSQLSessionContext(); }
}

> The current LanguageConnectionContext keeps the user authorization identifier for an
SQL session.
> The lcc is shared context also for nested connections (opened from stored procedures).
> So far, for roles, the current role has been stored in the lcc also. However, SQL requires
that
> authorization identifers be pushed on a "authorization stack" when calling a stored procedure,
cf.
> SQL 2003, vol 2, section 4.34.1.1 and 4.27.3.
> This allows a caller to keep its current role after a call even if changed by the stored
procedure.
> This issue will implement the current role name part ("cell") of the authorization stack.
