Constructor Detail

WebUserDataPermission

public WebUserDataPermission(java.lang.String name,
                             java.lang.String actions)
Creates a new WebUserDataPermission with the specified name and actions.

The name contains a URLPatternSpec that identifies the web resources to which the permissions applies. The syntax of a URLPatternSpec is as follows:


          URLPatternList ::= URLPattern | URLPatternList colon URLPattern

          URLPatternSpec ::= null | URLPattern | URLPattern colon URLPatternList

 

A null URLPatternSpec is translated to the default URLPattern, "/", by the permission constructor. The empty string is an exact URLPattern, and may occur anywhere in a URLPatternSpec that an exact URLPattern may occur. The first URLPattern in a URLPatternSpec may be any of the pattern types, exact, path-prefix, extension, or default as defined in the Java Servlet Specification). When a URLPatternSpec includes a URLPatternList, the patterns of the URLPatternList identify the resources to which the permission does NOT apply and depend on the pattern type and value of the first pattern as follows:

The actions parameter contains a comma separated list of HTTP methods that may be followed by a transportType separated from the HTTP method by a colon.


          ExtensionMethod ::= any token as defined by RFC 2616
                  (that is, 1*[any CHAR except CTLs or separators])

          HTTPMethod ::= "Get" | "POST" | "PUT" | "DELETE" | "HEAD" |
                  "OPTIONS" | "TRACE" | ExtensionMethod

          HTTPMethodList ::= HTTPMethod | HTTPMethodList comma HTTPMethod

          HTTPMethodExceptionList ::= exclaimationPoint HTTPMethodList

          HTTPMethodSpec ::= emptyString | HTTPMethodExceptionList |
                  HTTPMethodList

          transportType ::= "INTEGRAL" | "CONFIDENTIAL" | "NONE"

          actions ::= null | HTTPMethodSpec | 
                  HTTPMethodSpec colon transportType

 

If duplicates occur in the HTTPMethodSpec they must be eliminated by the permission constructor.

An empty string HTTPMethodSpec is a shorthand for a List containing all the possible HTTP methods.

If the HTTPMethodSpec contains an HTTPMethodExceptionList (i.e., it begins with an exclaimationPoint), the permission pertains to all methods except those occuring in the exception list.

An actions string without a transportType is a shorthand for a actions string with the value "NONE" as its TransportType.

A granted permission representing a transportType of "NONE", indicates that the associated resources may be accessed using any conection type.

Parameters:
name - the URLPatternSpec that identifies the application specific web resources to which the permission pertains. All URLPatterns in the URLPatternSpec are relative to the context path of the deployed web application module, and the same URLPattern must not occur more than once in a URLPatternSpec. A null URLPatternSpec is translated to the default URLPattern, "/", by the permission constructor. All colons occuring within the URLPattern elements of the URLPatternSpec must be represented in escaped encoding as defined in RFC 2396.

actions - identifies the HTTP methods and transport type to which the permission pertains. If the value passed through this parameter is null or the empty string, then the permission is constructed with actions corresponding to all the possible HTTP methods and transportType "NONE".

WebUserDataPermission

public WebUserDataPermission(java.lang.String urlPatternSpec,
                             java.lang.String[] HTTPMethods,
                             java.lang.String transportType)
Creates a new WebUserDataPermission with name corresponding to the URLPatternSpec, and actions composed from the array of HTTP methods and the transport type.

Parameters:
urlPatternSpec - the URLPatternSpec that identifies the application specific web resources to which the permission pertains. All URLPatterns in the URLPatternSpec are relative to the context path of the deployed web application module, and the same URLPattern must not occur more than once in a URLPatternSpec. A null URLPatternSpec is translated to the default URLPattern, "/", by the permission constructor. All colons occuring within the URLPattern elements of the URLPatternSpec must be represented in escaped encoding as defined in RFC 2396.

HTTPMethods - an array of strings each element of which contains the value of an HTTP method. If the value passed through this parameter is null or is an array with no elements, then the permission is constructed with actions corresponding to all the possible HTTP methods.

transportType - a String whose value is a transportType. If the value passed through this parameter is null, then the permission is constructed with actions corresponding to transportType "NONE".

WebUserDataPermission

public WebUserDataPermission(HttpServletRequest request)
Creates a new WebUserDataPermission from the HttpServletRequest object.

Parameters:
request - the HttpServletRequest object corresponding to the Servlet operation to which the permission pertains. The permission name is the substring of the requestURI (HttpServletRequest.getRequestURI()) that begins after the contextPath (HttpServletRequest.getContextPath()). When the substring operation yields the string "/", the permission is constructed with the empty string as its name. The constructor must transform all colon characters occuring in the name to escaped encoding as defined in RFC 2396. The HTTP method component of the permission's actions is as obtained from HttpServletRequest.getMethod(). The TransportType component of the permission's actions is determined by calling HttpServletRequest.isSecure().
Method Detail

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object o)
Checks two WebUserDataPermission objects for equality. WebUserDataPermission objects are equivalent if their URLPatternSpec and (canonicalized) actions values are equivalent. The URLPatternSpec of a reference permission is equivalent to that of an argument permission if their first patterns are equivalent, and the patterns of the URLPatternList of the reference permission collectively match exactly the same set of patterns as are matched by the patterns of the URLPatternList of the argument permission.

Two Permission objects, P1 and P2, are equivalent if and only if P1.implies(P2) && P2.implies(P1).

Specified by:
equals in class java.security.Permission
Parameters:
o - the WebUserDataPermission object being tested for equality with this WebUserDataPermission.

Returns:
true if the argument WebUserDataPermission object is equivalent to this WebUserDataPermission.

getActions

public java.lang.String getActions()
Returns a canonical String representation of the actions of this WebUserDataPermission. The canonical form of the actions of a WebUserDataPermission is described by the following syntax description.


          ExtensionMethod ::= any token as defined by RFC 2616
                   (that is, 1*[any CHAR except CTLs or separators])

          HTTPMethod ::= "GET" | "POST" | "PUT" | "DELETE" | "HEAD" |
                   "OPTIONS" | "TRACE" | ExtensionMethod
          
          HTTPMethodList ::= HTTPMethod | HTTPMethodList comma HTTPMethod

          HTTPMethodExceptionList ::= exclaimationPoint HTTPMethodList

          HTTPMethodSpec ::= emptyString | HTTPMethodExceptionList |
                  HTTPMethodList

          transportType ::= "INTEGRAL" | "CONFIDENTIAL" | "NONE"

          actions ::= null | HTTPMethodList | 
                  HTTPMethodSpec colon transportType

 

If the permission's HTTP methods correspond to the entire HTTP method set and the permission's transport type is "INTEGRAL" or "CONFIDENTIAL", the HTTP methods shall be represented in the canonical form by an emptyString HTTPMethodSpec. If the permission's HTTP methods correspond to the entire HTTP method set, and the permission's transport type is not "INTEGRAL"or "CONFIDENTIAL", the canonical actions value shall be the null value.

If the permission's methods do not correspond to the entire HTTP method set, duplicates must be eliminated and the remaining elements must be ordered such that the predefined methods preceed the extension methods, and such that within each method classification the corresponding methods occur in ascending lexical order. The resulting (non-emptyString) HTTPMethodSpec must be included in the canonical form, and if the permission's transport type is not "INTEGRAL" or "CONFIDENTIAL", the canonical actions value must be exactly the resulting HTTPMethodSpec.

Specified by:
getActions in class java.security.Permission
Returns:
a String containing the canonicalized actions of this WebUserDataPermission (or the null value).

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns the hash code value for this WebUserDataPermission. The properties of the returned hash code must be as follows:

Specified by:
hashCode in class java.security.Permission
Returns:
the integer hash code value for this object.

implies

public boolean implies(java.security.Permission permission)
Determines if the argument Permission is "implied by" this WebUserDataPermission. For this to be the case all of the following must be true:

URLPattern matching is performed using the Servlet matching rules where two URL patterns match if they are related as follows:

All of the comparisons described above are case sensitive.

Specified by:
implies in class java.security.Permission
Parameters:
permission - "this" WebUserDataPermission is checked to see if it implies the argument permission.

Returns:
true if the specified permission is implied by this object, false if not.
