Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-53) NPE When jspwiki.policy file not found in WEB-INF
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2007 18:45:43 GMT


Dave Wolf commented on JSPWIKI-53:

I've been giving the issue some thought overnight and would like to propose the following:
* Add a local.policy.file key / value to the file. This specification would
be used whenever there is a global jspwiki.policy file and a specific local policy file for
this wiki instance.
* Prior to attempting to acquire the default jspwiki.policy (WEB-INF/jspwiki.policy), we check
for a local policy file value. If the local policy file value exists, then use that file,
otherwise acquire the default policy file.

Question: is there a mechanism that will provide an indication of whether the global policy
file was found or is that not a problem as jspwiki won't get this far?

If we know that the global policy file exists, then use that if the default and local don't
exist. Otherwise, we could specify some default permissions.

> In the AuthorizationManager, a call is made to AuthenticationManager.findConfigFile(
engine, DEFAULT_POLICY ). If this method does not find the jspwiki.policy file, then the following
line after the call will result in a NPE.
