Subject Security: per app policy, app root relative FilePermissions?
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 15:06:30 GMT

(1) When using a SecurityManager, all permissions are managed globally 
in two senses. They're granted in a single policy file, 
conf/catalina.policy and they pertain to all installed webapps.

(2) FilePermission can't be relative to the root of a particular webapp.

That is my current understanding. If I'm wrong, where can I learn more?
