|Re: [equinox-dev] A few questions on ConditionalPermissionAdmin|
I recently started playing with the ConditionalPermissionAdmin and local permissions in Equinox. Here are a few questions I ran into:
1. As a simple test, I wrote a trivial bundle that does nothing except exporting a package. I noticed that if I do not explicitly state the PackageAdmin permission for the exported package, still my bundle comes up without any issue. To make sure I was setting things up correctly, I also tried to export a service from the same bundle without giving the ServicePermission in my local permissions and that failed so the setup seems to be right but for some reason, even though I have the Export clause in my manifest and no PackagePermission in my local permissions, still the bundle comes up fine. In other words, commenting or uncommenting the following line in my permissions.perm didn't make any difference :
# ( org.osgi.framework.PackagePermission "com.acme.osgi.client1" "IMPORT,EXPORT" ) # com.acme.osgi.client1 is the package that I was exporting
2. Is there a graphical tool that can inspect a bundle for its local permissions, so that an operator can use that to see what sort of permissions are being requested? I know it is easy to open a jar file and look at the permissions.perm there but it seems like something that may already have a tool done by someone.
3. Is there a graphical interface (even as an eclipse plugin or so) to help developers create their local permissions in the permissions.perm? It is easy to make a syntax error there, so again it sounds to me like something that can benefit from a more graphically oriented tool.
Many thanks Ali.
