Concepts Necessary for Using UME Permissions with this Tutorial

Before beginning with the tutorial, you should be familiar with the concept for using UME roles, actions, and permissions. For an overview of these concepts, see the following topics:

·        Permissions, Actions, and UME Roles

This topic explains how the UME enforces authorizations using permissions, actions, and UME roles.

·        Permission class for your application

This topic describes how to implement an explicit permission class for your application, which you will then use in your application code to check UME permissions.

·        actions.xml file

This topic describes the structure and syntax to use for the actions.xml file, which you use to consolidate the permissions that you check in your application into actions. The administrator consolidates these actions into roles, which he or she can then assign to the users.

·        UME archive file

This topic describes the UME archive file, which contains the actions.xml file, so that the actions can be deployed to the J2EE Engine.
