Subject [jira] [Commented] (JCR-3634) New method: JackrabbitRepository.login(Credentials, Map<String, Object>)
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2013 14:46:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-3634?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13723919#comment-13723919
] 

Michael Dürig commented on JCR-3634:
------------------------------------

At revision 1508469 I committed an initial implementation with Jukka's contract and naïve
implementation. I slightly adapted the contract to allow implementations throwing a RepositoryException
in the case of duplicate attribute names in the attributes map an the passed credentials.

> As discussed [1] we need a way for passing session attributes on login without having
to fall back to credentials. The latter might not support credentials or not be present at
all when authentication is handled externally.
> I suggest to add the following method to JackrabbitRepository:
> /**
>  * Equivalent to <code>login(credentials, workspace)</code> where
>  * <ul>
>  *     <li><code>workspace = attributes.get(ATT_WORKSPACE_NAME)</code>,</li>
>  *     <li><code>credentials</code> carry all and only the attributes
passed
>  *     through the <code>attributes</code> map.</li>
>  * </ul>
>  *
>  * @param credentials  the credentials of the user
>  * @param attributes   the attributes to put into the session
>  * @return a valid session for the user to access the repository.
>  * @throws javax.jcr.LoginException  if authentication or authorization for the
>  *     specified workspace fails.
>  * @throws javax.jcr.NoSuchWorkspaceException  if the specified workspace is not recognized.
>  * @throws javax.jcr.RepositoryException  if another error occurs.
