Groovy example source code file (SecurityTest.java)

This example Groovy source code file (SecurityTest.java) is included in the DevDaily.com "Java Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you "Learn Java by Example" TM.

Java - Groovy tags/keywords

file, file, groovycodesource, groovycodesource, groovycodesourcepermission, io, net, network, propertypermission, runtimeexception, runtimepermission, runtimepermission, security, securitytest, string, string, test, url, util

The Groovy SecurityTest.java source code

package groovy.security;

import groovy.lang.GroovyCodeSource;
import junit.framework.Test;
import junit.framework.TestSuite;
import junit.textui.TestRunner;
import org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilationFailedException;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URL;
import java.security.Security;
import java.util.PropertyPermission;

 * Test the effects of enabling security in Groovy.  Some tests below check for proper framework
 * behavior (e.g. ensuring that GroovyCodeSources may only be created for which proper permissions exist).
 * Other tests run .groovy scripts under a secure environment and ensure that the proper permissions
 * are required for success.
 * <p/>
 * Todo: find out why the marked tests are environment specific and why security tests are not
 * running on the build server.
