Subject [jira] [Reopened] (AXIOM-62) Java2Security Error. StAXUtils needs a AccessController code.
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 10:51:12 GMT

Andreas Veithen reopened AXIOM-62:
----------------------------------

      Assignee: Andreas Veithen  (was: Rich Scheuerle)

I'm reopening this issue. As noted in the description, this is actually an issue with the
underlying StAX implementation. On the other hand, executing createXMLStream(Reader|Writer)
with doPrivileged causes unnecessary overhead and is questionable from a security point of
view because it may give the code that calls StAXUtils privileges it is not expected to have.

> Problem:
> StAXUtils.createXMLStreamReader(...) and StAXUtils.createXMLStreamWriter(...) methods
call out to the plugged in stax implementation.  Brent Ulbricht discovered a J2S 
> exception in a non-woodstox parser.  
> Solution:
> I am pursuing a fix with the one of the owners of the parser.  In addition, I am using
this JIRA to do surround the code in a AccessController.doPriv block.  This solution is consistent
with pre-existing code in doPriv code in StAXUtils.
