Subject Re: Hivetranse Lock: User is in specified role but access is still denied
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 05:27:36 GMT
Hi Jean,
I solved that problem by simply writing my own interceptor which works 
almost like yours
but with difference, that user credentials are moved into separate 
interface SecurityInfoProvider
and injected as service into my security interceptor as service. In this 
case I got very portable service
which only required to write SecurityInfoProvider service implementation 
and authorization service will work.
There is some code and configs samples:
Hivemind part ( without configuration schemes ):
    <service-point id="AuthorizationInterceptor" 
        <invoke-factory model="primitive">
            <construct class="impl.AuthorizationInterceptorFactory" />
    <service-point id="SecutiryInfoProvider" 
        <invoke-factory model="singleton">
            <construct class="impl.DummySecurityInfoProviderImpl" />

public interface SecurityInfoProvider
    String getUserName();
    boolean isUserInRoles( List roles );
and there is project specific SecutiryInfoProvider service 
implementation, which overwrites default Dummy
implementation which normally makes nothing. What do you think? If this 
idea is OK, then is it possible for you
to include such problem solution in Hivetranse? Because It's better to 
have centralized solution for a problem,
then to modify others people code or write your own.
