Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Developer's Guide

User Interface

The user interface for entering permissions and policy is the Access Manager administration console which works with the policy administration API. Once the policy is defined, the evaluation is done using the J2SE architecture and enhanced policy implementation.

ISPermission covers the case when additional policy services are defined and imported, provided they only have boolean action values. In fact boolean evaluation is all that can be done using JAAS since JAAS permissions have a boolean result.
