Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-2868) Message Driven Beans will not run under the specified "run-as" Subject
Date Thu, 22 Feb 2007 16:32:05 GMT
Message Driven Beans will not run under the specified "run-as" Subject

                 Key: GERONIMO-2868
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: OpenEJB, security
    Affects Versions: 1.2
            Reporter: Aman Nanner

If a message driven bean is configured with a "run-as" element, it is being ignored and the
message driven bean is not run as the specified Subject.  The MDB would be configured in the
ejb-jar.xml as follows:





               <activation-config-property-value>JOB_CODE =



Upon inspection of the org.apache.openejb.mdb.DefaaultMdbContainer class, it is noted that
the EjbRunAsInterceptor is not configured as part of the invocation step (as it is in org.apache.openejb.slsb.DefaultStatelessEjbContainer).
 Therefore, the run-as Subject is never being set as part of the Caller stack.

I added the EjbRunAsInterceptor into the invocation stack and rebuilt Geronimo, but this didn't
completely fix the problem.  The EjbRunAsInterceptor is now being called, and the Subject
is being set as the "next" caller in the ContextManager's caller stack.  However, the EjbIdentityInterceptor
runs next, and authorizes the invocation under the "current" caller, not the "next" caller.
 Thus, the run-as Subject does NOT perform the invocation.

I'm not sure what the best way is to fix this without impacting everything else.  If somebody
with more knowledge in this area has a good idea, I can try it and submit a patch.

Also note that this problem seems to imply that the "run-as" functionality wouldn't work with
session EJBs either (I haven't tried to verify this).
