Subject Re: trying to setup resource-based ACLs
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2014 06:15:39 GMT
Hi Hiral,

If the 'user' variable has the user Id as a String, you could try the
following to get the Principal:

JackrabbitSession js = (JackrabbitSession) session;
UserManager userMgr = session.getUserManager();
Authorizable user = userMgr.getAuthorizable(userId);
Principal principal = user.getPrincipal();

You can then use the principal object with AccessControlUtils.

Hope this helps.
