Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-1751) Classlib test org.apache.harmony.prefs.tests.java.util.prefs.PreferencesTest.testSystemNodeForPackage() fails
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 11:31:24 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-1751?page=comments#action_12454284 ] 
            
Elena Semukhina commented on HARMONY-1751:
------------------------------------------

All,

the bug was filed because Harmony throws SecurityException on Preferences.systemNodeForPackage()
while RI does not. On one hand, spec for systemNodeForPackage() does not specify throwing
it (if there is no a security manager). On the other hand, the implementation of systemNodeForPackage()
relies on RegistryPreferencesImpl.childSpi() and childSpi is recommended to throw SecurityException
according to AbstractPreferences spec.

If we agree to throw SecurityException in childSpi, can we catch it in systemNodeForPackage()
and just print a warning to be compatible with RI?
