Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5582) Access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermission modifyThreadGroup) in IndexStatisticsDaemonImpl.schedule()
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2012 19:21:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5582?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13190514#comment-13190514

Kristian Waagan commented on DERBY-5582:

KM> Since there is a sec mgr, checkAccess is called. Since the thread is our ejb thread,
not a Derby thread, I'm guessing that IndexStatisticsDaemonImpl.schedule() call doesn't have
perms to add a new Thread to the ThreadGroup?

It's a bit hard to say which preconditions must be met before the exception is actually thrown.
From SecurityManager.checkAccess(ThreadGroup g):
If the thread group argument is the system thread group ( has a null parent) then this method
calls checkPermission with the RuntimePermission("modifyThreadGroup") permission. If the thread
group argument is not the system thread group, this method just returns silently.

Note that the documentation separates only between the system thread group and other thread
groups. In my mind the thread pool referred to above would have to be part of the system thread
group for the exception to be raised, unless there are custom security measures in place.
Which JVM was the issue seen on?

KM> So maybe the call to new up the statistics thread needs to explicitly use the Derby

Yes, I think that's the right thing to do in any case. That could also make it easier for
someone wanting to implement a stricter security manager (i.e to allow only some components
in a stack to create new threads).
