Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-1103) PermissionAdmin service can't handle java.ioFilePermission for "<<ALL FILES>>"
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2009 14:53:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1103?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12704654#action_12704654

Ulf Dittmer commented on FELIX-1103:

It doesn't seem to mention that in the OSGi spec, but since it's a standard feature of java.io.FilePermission
(mentioned in its javadocs), I think it's a reasonable assumption that it should work in an
OSGi context as well.

Searching a bit finds numerous pages that indicate it works with the Spring and Equinox OSGi
implementations as well (not a sure sign that that's the right thing to do, of course, but
why would an OSGi implementation not support a standard Java feature? It would complicate
matters a lot if developers had to assume that there might be differences between "Java" and
"Java in an OSGi context".)

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1103
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Conditional Permission Admin, Permission Admin
>    Affects Versions: felix-1.6.0
>            Reporter: Ulf Dittmer
> The PermissionAdmin service does not handle java.io.FilePermissions correctly that use
the special "<<ALL FILES>>" syntax for the path. It needs to be special-cased
in the org.apache.felix.framework.security.util.Permissions.implies(Permission, Bundle) method
instead of being interpreted as a regular file name. I've tested that it's sufficient to wrap
all the name/postfix handling in a "if (! "<<ALL FILES>>".equals(name)) { ...
}" block.
> Affected Felix version is 1.4, because that's the last one that works with PermissionAdmin
service. It would affect Felix 1.6 as well if that could be used at all (see bug Felix-1101).
> I'm not sure if this qualifies as a "Major" bug, but there's no easy workaround (which
the online docs say is what makes a "Minor" bug).
