How do I determine if I have read / write permission on an object or its attributes? I prefer not to actually attempt to write the object and catch a security exception.


Is it possible to distinguish between an object level and an attribute level permission with LDAP?


My ultimate goal is to perform an effective rights calculation on the Java side, which will influence navigation and display in a User Model GUI. I will be connecting to a Novell eDirectory tree.

Google and a lot of time produced a sufficient answer for my context:



LdapRights
as part of the Novell service provider kit allows this as a v3 extension to LDAP. The sublcass, LdapAttributeRights even allows the distinction between Object and attribute level properties.


Question asked and answered,
