Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5631) Extend SecurityManagerSetup to add extra privileges to the set of default privileges (merge two policy files)
Date Sun, 26 Feb 2012 04:46:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13216628#comment-13216628

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5631:

Looks like a useful addition. Now we should go back a remove stuff from the default test policy
file :) 
 - introduced new or changed lines with leading tabs
 - Might it be cleaner to have the two policies as arguments to mergeWithDefaultPolicyFile?
Perhaps by storing one (added==null) or two policies as members and drop the boolean member

> When moving ProtocolTest into suites all (see DERBY-2031), I needed to allow the test
code to create a socket. There was already a policy file for the old harness for doing this,
but when using this with the JUnit framework I ended up adding privilege after privilege to
get the framework itself running.
> Instead of creating a large policy file duplicating all the privileges that the framework
requires to function properly, I think it would be better to make the SecurityManagerSetup
capable of merging the test specific policy file with the default policy file.
> This mode of operation can be used when you need a few extra privileges to execute the
test, but there are probably also tests where you want full control of the privileges - in
which case you use the existing mode of operation.
> I'm not 100% sure this approach will always work, but basic testing has shown promising
