In continuation of my earlier blog on spring-test-mvc junit testing Spring Security layer with InMemoryDaoImpl, in this blog I will discuss how to use achieve method level access control. Please follow the steps in this blog to setup spring-test-mvc and run the below test case.

mvn test -Dtest=com.example.springsecurity.web.controllers.SecurityControllerTest

The JUnit test case looks as below,

@RunWith(SpringJUnit4ClassRunner.class)
@ContextConfiguration(loader = WebContextLoader.class, value = { "classpath:/META-INF/spring/services.xml",
"classpath:/META-INF/spring/security.xml",
"classpath:/META-INF/spring/mvc-config.xml" })
public class SecurityControllerTest {

@Autowired
CalendarService calendarService;

@Test
public void testMyEvents() throws Exception {
Authentication auth = new UsernamePasswordAuthenticationToken("user1@example.com", "user1");
SecurityContext securityContext = SecurityContextHolder.getContext();
securityContext.setAuthentication(auth);

calendarService.findForUser(0);
SecurityContextHolder.clearContext();
}

@Test(expected = AuthenticationCredentialsNotFoundException.class)
public void testForbiddenEvents() throws Exception {
calendarService.findForUser(0);
}
}
@Test(expected=AccessDeniedException.class)
public void testWrongUserEvents() throws Exception {
Authentication auth = new UsernamePasswordAuthenticationToken("user2@example.com", "user2");
SecurityContext securityContext = SecurityContextHolder.getContext();
securityContext.setAuthentication(auth);

calendarService.findForUser(0);
SecurityContextHolder.clearContext();
}

If you notice, if the user did not login or if the user is trying to access another users information it will throw an exception.

The interface access control is as below,

public interface CalendarService {

@PreAuthorize("hasRole('ROLE_ADMIN') or principal.id == #userId")
List<Event> findForUser(int userId);
}

The PreAuthorize only works on interface so that any implementation that implements this interface has this access control.

I hope this blog helps you.
