    public final class CapabilityPermission
    extends java.security.BasicPermission

      • CapabilityPermission

        public CapabilityPermission​(java.lang.String name,
                                    java.lang.String actions)
        Create a new CapabilityPermission.

        The name is specified as a dot-separated string. Wildcards may be used.

         name ::= <namespace> | <namespace ending in ".*"> | *
         
        Examples:
         com.acme.capability.*
         org.foo.capability
         *
         
        For the require action, the name can also be a filter expression. The filter gives access to the capability attributes as well as the following attributes:
        • signer - A Distinguished Name chain used to sign the bundle providing the capability. Wildcards in a DN are not matched according to the filter string rules, but according to the rules defined for a DN chain.
        • location - The location of the bundle providing the capability.
        • id - The bundle ID of the bundle providing the capability.
        • name - The symbolic name of the bundle providing the capability.
        • capability.namespace - The namespace of the required capability.
        Since the above attribute names may conflict with attribute names of a capability, you can prefix an attribute name with '@' in the filter expression to match against the capability attributes and not one of the above attributes. Filter attribute names are processed in a case sensitive manner.

        There are two possible actions: require and provide. The require permission allows the owner of this permission to require a capability matching the attributes. The provide permission allows the bundle to provide a capability in the specified capability namespace.

        Parameters:
        name - The capability namespace or a filter over the attributes.
        actions - require,provide (canonical order)
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - If the specified name is a filter expression and either the specified action is not require or the filter has an invalid syntax.
      • CapabilityPermission

        public CapabilityPermission​(java.lang.String namespace,
                                    java.util.Map<java.lang.String,​?> attributes,
                                    Bundle providingBundle,
                                    java.lang.String actions)
        Creates a new requested CapabilityPermission object to be used by code that must perform checkPermission for the require action. CapabilityPermission objects created with this constructor cannot be added to a CapabilityPermission permission collection.
        Parameters:
        namespace - The requested capability namespace.
        attributes - The requested capability attributes.
        providingBundle - The bundle providing the requested capability.
        actions - The action require.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - If the specified action is not require or attributes or providingBundle are null .
