Subject RE: Actions based on Role
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2003 22:55:28 GMT
If you use a filter, to filter actions based on role, the action wouldn't
have to know about security.  If your authentication sticks the user
information into the session, the action could make decisions based on the
user information.
