Subject [jira] [Updated] (FELIX-1908) PreferencesService doesn't work if a PermissionAdmin is present
Date Wed, 22 May 2013 12:42:19 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1908?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Sahoo updated FELIX-1908:

    Attachment: felix.preferences.security.patch

All that's missing in the code are a few doPrivileged blocks. A simple patch. If nobody has
objections, I would like to commit it.

> If a PermissionAdmin service is present, then a bundle making use of PreferencesService
currently needs a "org.osgi.service.prefs.PreferencesService" "get" ServicePermission (which
is as it should be), but also a FilePermission for the felix-cache subdirectory that contains
the data for the PreferencesService bundle. WIthout it, an attempt to alter preferences results
in a security exception.
> A bundle should not have (or need) file access to another bundle's private data.
