Annotation Type HttpConstraint


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Documented
public @interface HttpConstraint

This annotation represents the security constraints that are applied to all requests with HTTP protocol method types that are not otherwise represented by a corresponding HttpMethodConstraint in a ServletSecurity annotation.

Since:
Servlet 3.0

Optional Element Summary
 String[] rolesAllowed
          The authorized roles' names.
 ServletSecurity.TransportGuarantee transportGuarantee
          Determines whether SSL/TLS is required to process the current request.
 ServletSecurity.EmptyRoleSemantic value
          The EmptyRoleSemantic determines the behaviour when the rolesAllowed list is empty.
 

value

public abstract ServletSecurity.EmptyRoleSemantic value
The EmptyRoleSemantic determines the behaviour when the rolesAllowed list is empty.

Returns:
empty role semantic
Default:
javax.servlet.annotation.ServletSecurity.EmptyRoleSemantic.PERMIT

transportGuarantee

public abstract ServletSecurity.TransportGuarantee transportGuarantee
Determines whether SSL/TLS is required to process the current request.

Returns:
transport guarantee
Default:
javax.servlet.annotation.ServletSecurity.TransportGuarantee.NONE

rolesAllowed

public abstract String[] rolesAllowed
The authorized roles' names. The container may discard duplicate role names during processing of the annotation. N.B. The String "*" does not have a special meaning if it occurs as a role name.

Returns:
array of names. The array may be of zero length, in which case the EmptyRoleSemantic applies; the returned value determines whether access is to be permitted or denied regardless of the identity and authentication state in either case, PERMIT or DENY.
Otherwise, when the array contains one or more role names access is permitted if the user a member of at least one of the named roles. The EmptyRoleSemantic is not applied in this case.
Default:
{}

As of July 2010, there were no online versions of the servlet 3.0, JSP 2.2, and EL 2.2 Javadocs, except as part of the huge Java EE 6 API. So, I built them myself from the Tomcat 7 source code.
