JBoss not honoring @PermitAll on EJB3 Endpoint

abhi0123 Newbie

I have an EJB3 WebService Endpoint secured using @DeclareRoles and @RolesAllowed. It is packaged as an war, with deployment descriptors jboss-ejb3.xml and jboss-webservices.xml. When I invoke a method marked @PermitAll from the standalone client, it fails with 401 response. The method invocation is successful when credentials are provided. Problem is, credentials should not be required for a method marked @PermitAll.

 

I have intentionally omitted the handler code for brevity. If someone wants to see, I'll provide in a follow up post.

 

TimeService.java


@Stateless
@WebService(name = "Time", serviceName = "TimeService", portName = "TimeServicePort")
@HandlerChain(file = "handler-chain.xml")
@DeclareRoles({ "AppUser" })
public class TimeService {

  @WebMethod
  @PermitAll
          public Time getCurrentTime() {
                    return new Time();
          }

  /* HttpBasicAuthenticationHandler authenticates this request */
  @WebMethod
          public Time getCurrentTimeAfterHttpBasicAuthentication() {
                    return getCurrentTime();
          }

  @WebMethod
  @RolesAllowed("AppUser")
          public Time getCurrentTimeAfterDeclarativeRoleBasedAuthorization() {
                    return getCurrentTime();
          }
}

 

 

 

handler-chain.xml (located in the same directory as the WebService Endpoint above)
