Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide EXCEPT Operator

The access-control system supports a single operator. You can use the EXCEPT operator to create exceptions to matching names or patterns when you have multiple entries in either serviceList or clientList. For example, the expression:

list1 EXCEPT list2

means that anything that matches list1 is matched, unless it also matches list2.

Here is an example:


If this were a Deny filter, it would deny access to all services to all clients except those on the host machine

EXCEPT clauses can be nested. The expression:

list1 EXCEPT list2 EXCEPT list3

is evaluated as if it were:

list1 EXCEPT (list2 EXCEPT list3)
