Subject RE: [grails-user] JSecurity Plugin, AbstractLdapRealm and Caching
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2008 20:25:50 GMT
To provide additional information, I have a no-arg constructor in my realm.
After calling super(), I just added a call to init() in it to see if I could
get the additional output you mentioned.  The log output follows.  It looks
like the default cache manager is created after the realm.

Should the security manager initialize the realm or should the realm
initialize itself?

My apologies for the slow response.  Vacation.

With trace enabled, the only output that I get from AuthorizingRealm is the
following in getAuthorizationInfo().

2008-10-13 13:33:26,896 TRACE [org.jsecurity.realm.AuthorizingRealm]
Retrieving AuthorizationInfo for principals

There is no output from initAuthorizationCache().

You are indeed correct that it should be caching the AuthorizationInfo
lookup for role/permission checks - at least that is what the code

There are a few trace/debug/info log messages in AuthorizingRealm that
are printed when an authorization check occurs, particularly in the
initAuthorizationCache() and getAuthorizationInfo() methods .  Do you
have that output?
