Amdatu Security

The security component offers authorization features. It makes it easy to implement authorization for web applications, indepent of how users and groups are created and stored. The service provided by this component is the TokenProvider and is used to create secure tokens from a set of attributes. This is usally done after a user has been successfully logged in.

This component provides a default token provider implementation that is based on the Web Token specification specification.


Please visit the Security component page on the Amdatu website for a detailed description on how to use Amdatu Security.


The source code can be built on the command line using Gradle, or by using Bndtools in Eclipse. Tests can be ran from command line using Gradle as well, or by using JUnit in Eclipse.

Eclipse using Bndtools

When Bndtools is correctly installed in Eclipse, import all subprojects into the workspace using Import -> Existing Projects into Workspace from the Eclipse context menu. Ensure project -> Build Automatically is checked in the top menu, and when no (compilation) errors are present, each subproject's bundles should be available in their generated folder.


When building from command line, invoke ./gradlew jar from the root of the project. This will assemble all project bundles and place them in the generated folder of each subproject.


Eclipse using Bndtools

Unit tests can be ran per project or per class, using JUnit in Eclipse. Unit tests are ran by right clicking a project which contains a non-empty test folder or a test class and choosing Run As -> JUnit Test.

Integration tests can be ran in a similar way; right click an integration test project (commonly suffixed by .itest), but select Run As -> Bnd OSGi Test Launcher (JUnit) instead.


Unit tests are ran by invoking ./gradlew test from the root of the project.

Integration tests can be ran by running a full build, this is done by invoking ./gradlew build from the root of the project. More info on available Gradle tasks can be found by invoking ./gradlew tasks.
