Error description

  • Error Message: java.security.AccessControlException
    .
    Stack Trace: The stack trace from the application might look
    like following:Caused by: java.security.AccessControlException:
    Access denied (<some permission>)at
    java.security.AccessController.throwACEat
    java.security.AccessController.checkPermissionat
    java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPermissionIf the application
    should have access to <some permission>, re-run the testcase
    with VM command line option "-Djava.security.debug=all", which
    shows the actual failed permission check:"domain that failed
    (java.security.SecurityPermission createAccessControlContext)
    check ProtectionDomain".
    .
    

Local fix

  • Construct AccessControlContext with
    AccessControlContext(AccessControlContext acc, DomainCombiner
    combiner) instead of
    AccessControlContext(ProtectionDomain<OSB><CSB> context) where
    combiner could simply be null.
    

Problem summary

  • This AccessControlException was caused by unnecessary permission
    checking.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JVM has been updated to remove unnecessary permission
    checks.
