UserKit TO DO
[ ] Roles: Implement and test. These might be done as mix-ins. [ ] Timeouts: We have the settings, but not the implementation [ ] modified users get persisted [ ] inactive users get pushed out of memory [ ] inactive users get logged out [ ] MiddleKit integration: [ ] Should the manager be stored as an MK object? [ ] Is there a conflict regarding accessor methods between User and what MiddleKit does? [ ] WebKit integration [ ] Make a UserPage(Page) class for WebKit. Or perhaps a UserServletMixIn. Hmmmm. [ ] Add a UserManager admin page. [ ] Consider implementing Tom's suggestion for manager interface [ ] Docs: User's Guide [ ] Upload to CVS
[ ] Consider making roles case insensitive. [ ] For that matter, should user names be case insensitive? - If so, provide for an option to be case sensitive. Some users want that, especially if they are porting an existing app. [ ] UserManagerToFile [ ] Iterating through all users means pulling them all into memory (until the inactive user timeout pushes them out) [ ] No indexes on externalId or name. So a linear search is required (after checking memory). On the other hand, what do you expect with simple file based storage?
[ ] Case: retrieve users from the MiddleKit store, totally fresh. [ ] Test the various "default" parameters of all the methods. [ ] cover all methods [ ] Add more subtle and complex tests. [ ] test externalId
