Class WikiServletFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class WikiServletFilter
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements javax.servlet.Filter
    Filter that verifies that the Engine is running, and sets the authentication status for the user's Session. Each HTTP request processed by this filter is wrapped by a WikiRequestWrapper. The wrapper's primary responsibility is to return the correct userPrincipal and remoteUser for authenticated JSPWiki users (whether authenticated by container or by JSPWiki's custom system). The wrapper's other responsibility is to incorporate JSPWiki built-in roles into the role-checking algorithm for HttpServletRequest.isUserInRole(String). Just before the request is wrapped, the method AuthenticationManager.login(HttpServletRequest) executes; this method contains all of the logic needed to grab any user login credentials set by the container or by cookies.

        Initializes the WikiServletFilter.
        Specified by:
        init in interface javax.servlet.Filter
        config - The FilterConfig.
        javax.servlet.ServletException - If a Engine cannot be started.

        Destroys the WikiServletFilter.
        Specified by:
        destroy in interface javax.servlet.Filter
      • doFilter

        public void doFilter​(javax.servlet.ServletRequest request,
                             javax.servlet.ServletResponse response,
                             javax.servlet.FilterChain chain)
        Checks that the Engine is running ok, wraps the current HTTP request, and sets the correct authentication state for the users's Session. First, the method AuthenticationManager.login(HttpServletRequest) executes, which sets the authentication state. Then, the request is wrapped with a WikiRequestWrapper.
        Specified by:
        doFilter in interface javax.servlet.Filter
        request - the current HTTP request object
        response - the current HTTP response object
        chain - The Filter chain passed down.
        javax.servlet.ServletException - if AuthenticationManager.login(HttpServletRequest) fails for any reason - If writing to the servlet response fails.
