Subject New to permissions, how do I just let everything do what I want?
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2007 20:22:22 GMT
Hi.  I'm somewhat experienced in Java and ant, but I haven't faced this 
problem before, and the ant docs aren't helping.  I'm creating an ant 
script to run some code written by someone else at my company (they 
built it with Eclipse).

I can forward the specific errors I'm getting, but they're all on the 
order of "..Caused by: java.lang.SecurityException: Permission (foo) was 
not granted."  I've never seen errors about java.lang.SecurityException 
before.  The only difference I can think of is that this is Swing code, 
and everything I've done with Java and ant has been CLI.  Is that possible?

Anyway, I RTFMed, and have been putting grant after grant in the <java> 
task, and each time I do, another one pops up.  Googling, I also see 
people use "*" for the name, but that doesn't work (apparently) for the 
class or the actions.  After a dozen or so attempts, I've found 5 or 6 
classes that it's reporting this error for, and I have no idea how many 
more errors will pop up.

So how do I say "Let the code do whatever it wants" in GRANT-speek?
