How did you came to such conclusion and what you meant exactly? The
policy format is basically the same and DefaultPolicyParser is
actually used by org.apache.harmony.auth.DefaultSubjectPolicy which is
the default JAAS policy. But the policy itself indeed is used nowhere,
AFAIK. Moreover, it is deprecated and it's use is not documented in
API specifications. Probably it was intended to affect
Subject.doAs[Privileged]() behaviour, so you can attempt blackbox
testing to shed some light into this dark matter ;)
