hi everybody,

Is this a valid declaration of "auth-constraint"

<auth-constraint>*</auth-constraint>

If so,What will be the result of this declaration?

Will it act in the same way as

<auth-constraint>
<role-name>*</role-name>
</auth-constraint>

and

with no <auth-constraint> tag?

- That means will it give access to everybody?

Thanks in Advance..

Hi Rajesh,

1.<auth-constraint>
<role-name>*</role-name>
</auth-constraint>

2. No <auth-constraint> tag

3.<auth-constrint/> or <auth-constrint></auth-constrint>

1==2--> (Everybody allowed)
3 -->Nobody allowed



There is no such declaration as below(no meaning)
<auth-constraint>*</auth-constraint>

Thanks Srinivasan,

In the HFSJ book mock exam 43rd question -

"<auth-constraint>*<auth-constraint>" is also given as the correct answer to give access to everybody.

That's why i got the doubt.

Any way Thanks again

Hi Michael,

The above point is specified in the errata. i.e.
<role-name> should be placed in b/w <auth-constraint> tags.

Actually i checked the errata earlier also but some how i missed this point.

Thanks Michael..

I found a lot of errors in HFSJ when I was studying for the exam. I got to the point that I first downloaded the errata, went to the book and made the corrections by hand, then went back to studying. It was much easier after I did this

Good luck in your studies

Hi Michael,

I also have done the same thing you did.
Made all corrections in the book from errata before i started reading the book.But as i already mentioned i missed that particular point.

Thanks for your wishes,

Rajesh, I did the same thing. I made the corrections about the time I got to security.

Good luck going forward
