Subject [jira] Created: (QPID-2234) Clean up after addition of PrincipalHolder
Date Fri, 04 Dec 2009 11:04:20 GMT
Clean up after addition of PrincipalHolder 

                 Key: QPID-2234
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-2234
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Java Broker
            Reporter: Martin Ritchie
            Priority: Minor

The addition of the PrincipalHolder and its getPrincipal() method has added new means of retrieving
the authorizedID for a session.

However, AMQProtocolEngine still maintains getAuthorizedID() to pair with the setAuthorizedID(Principal)

Do we need to have two getters for the same variable?

Attached is a patch that removes getAuthorizedID as it is the least used. However, I would
be in favour of renaming getPrincipal to getAuthorizedPrincipal just to make things clearer.
I know the java doc says ' Principal that was used to authorized this session' .. though I
do have to wonder what session. 

What was the reasoning behind the new PrincipalHolder? Seems odd just to have a single getter
in an interface.
