Subject Re: Hiearchical Security???

You can approximate what you have described by editing the  
jspwiki.policy file in WEB-INF. The policy specifies what permissions  
are granted per role, and for all roles. You can name ranges of pages  
that the permissions are granted to, also, by using wildcards.

JSPWiki 3 will have support for sub-pages, which are hierarchical. But  
in the meantime you can still do quite a lot with the existing policy  

Check out the documentation on -- there's an extremely  
detailed article that describes the security features in detail.
