Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-646) Servlet calling HttpServletRequest.isUserInRole(null) causes NPE using Jetty container
Date Thu, 12 May 2005 19:31:05 GMT
     [ ]

Tom McQueeney updated GERONIMO-646:

    Attachment: JAASJettyRealm-patch.txt

Patches for my proposed solution. Patches are for the JAASJettyRealm.isUserInRole, WebRoleRefPermission
constuctor to test for illegal role argument (also added javadocs to this class to describe
its spec requirements), and WebRoleRefPermissionTest to test the change to the WebRoleRefPermission.

> JAASJettyRealm.isUserInRole creates a WebRoleRefPermission, passing it the

> When the web role ref permission gets checked, eventually its hashcode method is called,
