Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4332) Integrate PiTest mutation coverage tool into build
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:33:08 GMT


Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-4332:

bq. Well if its for test purposes only and not enforcing actual security, we should be able
to give the runner a nice backdoor (e.g. static boolean BACKDOORED) if we really need to right?

I don't know what it will do and how it will fail. I never run with a security manager, I
think the design of SM is complex, weird and poorly documented (as evidenced by the security
vuln. published today...). I just don't think of it much because I know very few people that
actually run with a SM enabled. I am fairly sure I do many things in the code that I know
won't work with an installed SM -- scanning properties, opening files, etc. I'm sure it is
possible to configure it do grant permissions to certain packages but I've no idea how to
do it.

I'm not saying no to the idea, but I'm just letting you know that things may break in unexpected
ways and I will have limited time to learn SM internals... Not that I'm especially looking
forward to that. :)
