This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been bashing my head against this for most of the day. I think I've narrowed the problem down to a single line, but I have absolutely no idea on how to fix it. Documentation has a little bit of help, but not what I'm looking for.
Problem: Implementing security roles yanked out of a database. Specific to users. If I set permissions="rolesAdapter" in the useMenuDisplayer tag, nobody gets anything. I set permissions=<custom permission adapter> and everyone gets everything. Obviously, something wrong is happening. Checking my roles, they get added to the user class properly.
This is basically yanked straight out of the permissions example. My problem is that menus turns up as null, no matter what I attempt to do. Why?
