Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-3434) Revert backwards-incompatible changes to SecurityProviderImpl
Date Tue, 22 Sep 2015 14:59:04 GMT

Chetan Mehrotra commented on OAK-3434:
--------------------------------------

As mentioned before I am still not clear on what is the actual problem here. 

# Break in backward compatibility of SecurityProviderImpl - There are users which are extending
SecurityProviderImpl in OSGi and current approach would cause a breaking change. If thats
the case then as mentioned before most likely such a usage of security provider is not possible.
So lets first have a testcase which demonstrate such kind of usage and see how it gets broken
# Break in backward compatibility of {{org.apache.jackrabbit.oak.security}} package - as this
package contains certain other classes causing a breaking change in SecurityProviderImpl would
lead to major version increment. If that is the case then it more of problem of getting BND
check passed only.

So can it be determined whats the actual problem here?

> OAK-3201 introduced some backwards-incompatible changes to {{SecurityProviderImpl}}.
It should be investigated if those changes can be reverted to maintain the backwards compatibility
of the {{org.apache.jackrabbit.oak.security}} package.
