Re: [equinox-dev] Problem with custom local permissions

Have you written (or installed) a bundle which reads the permissions.perm file, parses the text into PermissionInfos and calls either PermissionAdmin or ConditionalPermissionAdmin to set the permissions of the bundle?

permissions.perm files are not read by the framework. You need s security policy bundle installed (for example, as I describe above) to set bundle permissions. The framework is policy free.

I have the next scenario:
Bundle Service which has a method called addVALUE as  shown:
public boolean addValue(String key, Object value) {
            SecurityManager security = System.getSecurityManager();
          if (security != null) {
            security.checkPermission(new PlatformConfigurationPermission(
The problem is that other  bundle  called consumer which has the next permissions.perm file, tries to call this method getting the Security Exception shown below:
#TestPlatformConfiguration Permissions File
(java.io.FilePermission "C:\TestingLog3.log" "write")
(es.citic.osgi.system.platformConfiguration.PlatformConfigurationPermission "PlatformConfigurationPermission" "writeValue")
The Exception which was got is:
Java.security.AccessControlException: Access denied (es.citic.osgi.system.platformConfiguration.PlatoformConfigurationPermission PlatformConfigurationPermission writeValue)
My PlatformConfigurationPermission class extends from Permission.
What am I missing in this implementation?
It looks like as does not recognice what I am writing in the permission.perm file.
Any idea
Thank you in advance
