public class HierarchyRoleResource
extends P13nCachedResource

The HierarchyRoleResource class is used to represent an application defined resource for management and runtime checking of role and security policies.

This class has special significance for the formation and runtime checking of role policies associated with a resource. Role policies will be collected at all scopes using this class, i.e. at the application leaf node; at all resource hierarchy levels according to the appResourceID; at the webapp scope; at the enterprise application scope; and at the global scope.

This class will search for security policies beginning at the application resource leaf node and then in a hiearchical manner, until located, using the P13nSecurityResource class.
