Subject Re: Qpid SecurityPlugin "access" and "authorise"
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2010 09:16:22 GMT

The original reason was because of the way the Firewall plugin worked,
since it needed a SocketAddress object to work with. On reflection a
single authorise method is better, however it would mean more complex
address processing logic for that callback, and passing the address as
a string, if it is possible to obtain it (since an in-vm broker will
not have a source IP address) and I am also not sure how the method
would handle IPV6 addresses at the moment...
