Subject [jira] Created: (JS2-384) Abstract Permission Manager checkPermission operation
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2005 23:01:19 GMT
Abstract Permission Manager checkPermission operation

         Key: JS2-384
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-384
     Project: Jetspeed 2
        Type: Improvement
    Versions: 2.0-M4    
    Reporter: David Sean Taylor
 Assigned to: David Sean Taylor 
    Priority: Minor
     Fix For: 2.0-M4

Abstract Permission Manager checkPermission operation, add this method to the API
This accomplishes two things:
1. makes it easier for Jetspeed developers to use the Jetspeed API to do a permission check
     it does not suit all cases, for there are times when you want to actually excecute the
privileged code
     but it does make for a quick security check
2. for permission managers not using Java security policies, this abstraction will be a necessary
addition to the Jetspeed API 
to check portlet permissions
