Subject Access Management - Unix-Style
Date Sun, 02 Sep 2007 14:15:53 GMT

After searching this list and studying documentation I have not found a 
simple way of doing group-based authorization in jackrabbit.
If I got it correctly I would need either another tree in the repository 
storing access permissions or some in-memory chunk of data, because the 
AccessManager does not allow accessing the node in question (which -in 
some respect- makes sense). On the other hand there seems almost no 
alternative to this approach.

After all, this is very unsatisfying! I simply want unix-style 
permissions on my nodes.
I was already thinking about storing permissions in properties and 
handle the access outside of JAAS and JCR in my EJB... which is not 
really good style.

Any hints are highly appreciated!
