Subject [jira] [Created] (JCR-3230) hasCapability() does not respect permissions
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 12:10:59 GMT
hasCapability() does not respect permissions

                 Key: JCR-3230
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3230
             Project: Jackrabbit Content Repository
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: jackrabbit-core
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Lars Krapf

Session.hasCapability() is lacking a sound check for access control permissions, thus it can
return true even if the respective call to hasPermission will return false.
This violates the specification:

[hasCapability] checks whether an operation can be performed given as much context as can
be determined by the repository, including:

-  Permissions granted to the current user, including access control privileges.
- [...]
