angela commented on JCR-2910:
-----------------------------

> What about JackrabbitSession.getUser()? 

while i would not object to move the SessionImpl.isAdmin to the API, that new suggestion doesn't
make any sense to me.
i added the former method recently to SessionImpl as we used to have plenty of duplicate code
in jackrabbit-core that retrieved the subject from the session and tested if it contained
a AdminPrincipal... thus SessionImpl.isAdmin basically doesn't rely on user management being
implemented (in fact it is an optional feature that can be turned off by using a different
security configuration).
having this in mind Session#getUser really doesn't add any benefit over retrieving the User
from the UserManager.

> Currently finding out if the session user is an admin requires:
> JackrabbitSession js = (JackrabbitSession) session;
> User user = ((User) js.getUserManager().getAuthorizable(session.getUserID()));
> boolean isAdmin = user.isAdmin();
> Or: ((SessionImpl) session).isAdmin(). However casting to an implementation is problematic
for several reasons.
> I think it would make sense to add isAdmin() to the JackrabbitSession interface, so the
code above would be:
> ((JackrabbitSession) session).isAdmin()
