Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-6318) Refactor oak.spi.security into a separate module/bundle
Date Wed, 13 Sep 2017 10:15:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-6318?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16164431#comment-16164431

angela commented on OAK-6318:

[~stillalex], i gave it a try and found the following issues (sometimes with proposed solutions
where i have one)

h4. Package o.a.j.oak.spi.xml.*
- dependency to _plugins.nodetype_ by use of {{EffectiveNodeType}} in {{PropInfo}} can be
worked around by moving the utility method to {{EffectiveNodeType}}
- dependency to _spi.security.*_: instead of moving _spi.xml_ to the _oak-store-spi_ or _oak-core-spi_
module i would move it out to _oak-security-spi_ along with the security code base.

h4. Package o.a.j.oak.spi.security.*
- {{ConfigurationUtil}} depends on impl... i would deprecate the class and for the time being
just add hardcoded strings instead of {{*.class.getName()}}.
- dependencies to constants {{NodeTypeConstants}}, {{NamespaceConstants}}, {{VersionConstants}}
(etc): not sure yet what would be the best way to deal with that.
- dependency to _o.a.j.oak.plugins.tree_: that's IMO the most troublesome dependency because
that package also contains factories that require _oak-core_. I guess we have to rip that
apart at the cost of breaking compatibility.
- dependency to {{o.a.j.oak.namepath.NamePathMapper}}: similar as the one before... while
the interfaces {{NamePathMapper}},  {{NameMapper}},  {{PathMapper}} could safely be moved
to _oak-core-spi_ the other classes in the same package have dependencies to other plugins
and (afaik) to implementation details... maybe we also would need to split that package.
- ... (more to come as i analyse the issues)

> In the light of the modularization effort it would IMHO make a lot of sense to refactor
_oak.spi.security.*_ into a separate module/bundle that could be release independent of _oak-core_.
> As far as I could see so far this is currently not easily doable due to the dependency
of {{oak.spi.security.*}} on {{oak.plugins.tree}}, which in turn relies on {{o.a.j.oak.query.QueryEngineSettings}}
and other oak-core internals (see also OAK-6304). Most likely this issue would therefore require
a complete review (and possibly a split) of  the {{oak.plugins.tree}} package space which
contains a mixture of utilities and 'API' (like e.g. {{TreeContext}} and {{TreeLocation}})...
will open a separate issue for this linking to this one.
