Subject [jira] [Commented] (SHIRO-307) DomainPermission does not fully support domain, actions and targets properties
Date Sat, 25 Jun 2011 06:14:47 GMT


Phil Steitz commented on SHIRO-307:

OK, now I get the original intention of the class.  The way that I am using it s really as
a bridge between my permissions persistence store and WildcardPermission.  I store <domain,
actions, targets> as <String, Set<String>, Set<String>> and use the setParts
code in DomainPermission to construct WildcardPermissions from these.  I guess I could just
do the string encoding myself and work directly with WildcardPermissions, but it is handy
to have the setParts stuff provided.

I now see what you are saying about <String, Set<String>, Set<String>> being
app-specific, but you could argue that it is a natural extension of the default <String,
String, String>.  It certainly seemed natural to me :)

Another logical option, I guess, is to use generics in the constructor and make setParts abstract.
 But that leaves a class of questionable value.

So I am fine with deprecating.  Adding the <String, Set<String>, Set<String>
constructor to WildcardPermission or otherwise Keeping somewhere the setParts code that acts
as a WildcardPermission factory would be useful to me at least.

> Per the class javadoc, DomainPermission is designed to be a base class for Permission
implementations that persist permission parts as separate properties.  It defines private
fields for domain, actions and targets and exposes getters/setters for these, but the setParts
and constructor methods that set Permission state do not call the property setters and the
property setters don't call setParts.   Property synchronization needs to be added to this
