    Role & permission inheritance

    Gregor Melhorn Newbie

      I'm pretty new to Java Enterprise Development, hope someone can answer this:

      At present I'm using a php based portal. In the portal, permission checking and granting is done like this:

      Administrators may create roles and permission areas. Each permission area may be assigned to a role or may be inherited from parent roles.

      Each of these areas has several permission settings (show, create, admin, delete etc.). . Each of these permission settings may be adjusted per role (allow, deny, inherit from parent).

      I imagine it could be possible to configure portlet access rights like this as well, but didn't see how to do it.

      If I'm right, there is no inheritance model for roles and permissions in the portal? How do I change this?

      Best regards
