    need help with Seam Identity

    nguyen dang Newbie

      Hi, I wrote a new class which subclass from org.jboss.seam.security.Identity in order to cache the permission, here is the code

      public class CmsIdentity extends Identity {
          HashMap<String, Boolean> permissionMap = new HashMap<String, Boolean>();
          HashMap<String, Boolean> roleMap = new HashMap<String, Boolean>();
          public boolean hasPermission(Object target, String action) {
              String key = target.toString() + action;
              if (permissionMap.get(key) == null) {
                  boolean result = super.hasPermission(target, action);
                  permissionMap.put(key, result);
                  return result;
              } else {
                  return permissionMap.get(key);
          public boolean hasRole(String role) {
              String key = role;
              if (roleMap.get(key) == null) {
                  boolean result = super.hasRole(role);
                  roleMap.put(key, result);
                  return result;
              } else {
                  return roleMap.get(key);

      the thing is, when i call an EL like {not identity.loggedIn} it's ok. But when i check restriction using {s:hasRole('admin')} or {s:hasPermission('target','action')}, the NotLoginException is thrown. Here is the strace:

              at org.jboss.seam.jsf.SeamPhaseListener.beforeServletPhase(SeamPhaseListener.java:148)
              at org.jboss.seam.jsf.SeamPhaseListener.beforePhase(SeamPhaseListener.java:118)

              at com.sun.faces.lifecycle.LifecycleImpl.render(LifecycleImpl.java:139)

      The org.jboss.seam.security.Identity.checkRestriction() method is not supposed to be called but the subclass with higher precedence instead. Is there any ideas ? Thanks.
