Stefan Frerich commented on JS2-21:
-----------------------------------

It seems that a solution to this issue was close at hand in Dec 2005. Is there currently any
work in progress?
@Ate: Could you provide more detailed information, what the problem was in your last fix?
Thanks in advance!

>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Security

> Reported by Ate Douma:
> o.a.j.security.impl.RoleManagerImpl.isUserInRole() implementation is
> missing a required feature.
> A User can be part of a Group which can have Roles just like the User itself.
> The isUserInRole() method currently only checks if the specified role is assigned to
the user, not if it is assigned to one of the groups the user belongs to.
> The Role definition in Servlet 2.3 SRV.12.4 (which according to portlet PLT.20.2 also
applies for portlets) specifies that a user is in a specific role either when assigned directly
to the user or
> when assigned to a group the user belongs to.
> Thus according to this definition the RoleManagerImpl.isUserInRole() 
> should also check the roles assigned to any group to user belongs to.
