Subject Bug or intended behavior (getAggregatePrivileges())
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 12:45:18 GMT
I am using Jackrabbit version *2.4.2*.

Here is the description from JCR java docs for the method
*getAggregatePrivileges* in the interface javax.jcr.security.Privilege

*  Privilege[] 	getAggregatePrivileges()*
          /If this privilege is an aggregate privilege, returns the
privileges it contains, the privileges contained by any aggregate privileges
among those, and so on (the transitive closure of privileges contained by
this privilege)./

Here is what I am observing:

(1) If the Privilege is "jcr:write", then the returned Privileges from the
above method

(2) If the Privilege is "rep:write" (jackrabbit internal privilege I
believe), then the returned Privileges from the above method are:
jcr:nodeTypeManagement, jcr:removeNode, jcr:modifyProperties,
jcr:removeChildNodes, *jcr:write*, jcr:addChildNodes

As we can see from (2), the returned response contains "jcr:write" and also
its corresponding aggregate privileges.  Is this the intended behavior or a

I thought "jcr:write" should not be part of the response from (2).  Can
someone clarify if this is the intended behavior or is this a bug.
