    Seam Security Interceptors

    Mo Grauel Newbie


      I am toying around with seam-security. I have some trouble getting Typesafe Authorization to work for me. I am using seam-security 3.0.0.Final. I have created an annotation:

      @Target({ElementType.FIELD, ElementType.METHOD, ElementType.TYPE})
      public @interface FooRequired {

      And a corresponding method. If I use that annotation in a @ViewConfig it works as expected. However if I annotate a method with it, it has no result at runtime.

      It never gets called.

      After some poking, I was wondering why the SecurityInterceptor is not in the interceptor list of the seam-security beans.xml? Is this a bug? It only lists the TransactionInterceptor

      I have placed a breakpoint inside the SecurityInterceptor and it never get's called.

      If I annotate my secured method the following way:

          public void foo(){...}

      Everything works as I expect it. But this is not the intended way, isn't it? Am I doing something wrong?

      Any help would be appreciated.

          Add the interceptor in the beans.xml and let us know the result. Interceptors are not enabled by default and must be listed in the beans.xml (I would put the security interceptor first so it's the first interceptor to be invoked).

            to my beans.xml works. The interceptor get's called and the the security of the annotated methods gets validated.

            Does the documentation of seam-security mentions somewhere that one has to enable the SecurityInterceptor manually?

            If I specify


            in my beans.xml the applications fails to deploy.

              This is because the transaction interceptor is already configured in seam-security-impl jar  (see /META-INF/beans.xml of the seam-security-impl jar) ...

                It doesn't look like it is in the docs, please add a JIRA (or even a pull request :) )
