Subject [jira] [Created] (OAK-7232) MountPermissionProvider.load can return null
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2018 13:54:00 GMT
angela created OAK-7232:

             Summary: MountPermissionProvider.load can return null
                 Key: OAK-7232
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-7232
             Project: Jackrabbit Oak
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core, security
            Reporter: angela
            Assignee: angela
         Attachments: OAK-7232.patch

while adding missing annotations to {{MountPermissionProvider}} i noticed that the load method
is actually defined as follows on the interface:

     * Loads the permission entries for the given principal and path. if the given {@code
entries} is {@code null}, it
     * will be created automatically if needed. If a {@code entries} is given, it will reuse
it and the same object is
     * returned. If no entries can be found for the given principal or path, {@code null}
is returned.
     * @param entries the permission entries or {@code null}
     * @param principalName name of the principal
     * @param path access controlled path.
     * @return the given {@code entries}, a new collection or {@code null}
    Collection<PermissionEntry> load(@Nullable Collection<PermissionEntry> entries,
@Nonnull String principalName, @Nonnull String path);

IMO this means that the implementation in {{MountPermissionProvider}} could return {{null}}
instead of creating an empty set.
