WebLogic Server 5.1.0 API Reference
Interface DynamicUserAcl

public interface DynamicUserAcl
extends BasicRealm

Supports the dynamic creation of ACLs for owned resources. Rather than being able to create arbitrary ACLs, the newUserAcl member function creates a new ACL that refines an existing ACL by adding permissions for the current user. This allows everyone to create standard ACLs for resources they created themselves.
