34 = For Developers =
35
36 == Log from a script ==
37
38 A new API to get a SLF4J Logger has been added to the ##logging## script service.
39
40 {{code language="velocity"}}
41 $services.logging.getLogger('My script').info('Hello {}', 'world')
42 {{/code}}
43
44 == New contextual authorization manager role ==
45
46 A new role is now available to ease the replacement of the old Right Service (com.xpn.xwiki.user.api.XWikiRightService).
47 Compared to the old service, the component does not manage authentication which should have been ensured previously if needed. (No redirection to login is ever done)
48 The new component has a similar interface to the AuthorizationManager, but it take care of all external context aspects, like the currently executed macro block, the rendering context restrictions, the dropping of rights, etc...
49 This new role should be used from now on by any component that needs to check rights for the current user, in the current context.
50
51 == New security authorization script service ==
52
53 A new script service is now available to access the default AuthorizationManager and the ContextualAuthorizationManager.
54
55 Here is some sample:
56
57 {{code language="velocity"}}
58 #if ($services.security.authorization.hasAccess("edit"))
59 ... show some UI that require edit access on the current document by the current user ...
60 #end
61 #if ($services.security.authorization.hasAccess("edit", "xwiki:Sandbox.TestPage1"))
62 ... show some UI that require edit access on Sandbox.TestPage1 document by the current user ...
63 #end
64 #if ($services.security.authorization.hasAccess("edit", "xwiki:XWiki.User1", "xwiki:Sandbox.TestPage1"))
65 ... show some UI that require edit access on Sandbox.TestPage1 document by XWiki.User1 ...
66 #end
67 {{/code}}
68
69 {{code language="velocity"}}
70 $services.security.authorization.checkAccess("edit")
71 ... do some task that require edit access ...
72 {{/code}}
73
74 In this second sample, the macro will fail with an AccessDeniedException if the right is not allowed.
75
76 == Access to BlockMatchers from velocity scripts ==
77
78 To be able to use the ##Block.getBlocks(BlockMatcher, Block.Axes)## method on the rendering blocks in the documents XDOM from velocity, a converter has been introduced that maps string expressions to BlockMatcher objects. The current implementation only supports mapping to ClassBlockMatchers, and allows to get all blocks of a given type from the XDOM.
79
80 {{code language="velocity"}}
81 #foreach($headerBlock in $doc.getDocument().getXDOM().getBlocks("class:HeaderBlock", "DESCENDANT"))
82 ... do something with the header block ...
83 {{/code}}
84
85 == Upgrades ==
86
87 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
88
89 * [[commons-collections 4.0>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-605]]
90 * [[httpclient 4.3.4>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-606]]
91 * [[commons-beanutils 1.9.2>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-607]]
92 * [[reflections 0.9.9-RC2>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-608]]
93
94 == Miscellaneous ==
95
96 * The [[Mail Sender API>>extensions:Extension.Mail Sender API]] now allows to send Mails from a Template. This is achieved with 2 calls:
97 ** One for setting the Subject from the Template. The following will generate a ##MimeMessage## with the subject pre-filled. The value will be that of the ##subject## xproperty from an ##XWiki.Mail## xobject in the Document pointed to by the passed ##documentReference##:(((
98 {{code language="none"}}
99 #set ($message = $services.mailsender.createMessage("template", documentReference, parameters))
100 {{/code}}
101 )))
102 ** One for setting the Body Part content from the Template:(((
103 {{code language="none"}}
104 $message.addPart("xwiki/template", $documentReference, {"velocityVariables" : { "var1" : "value1" }})
105 $message.addPart("xwiki/template", $documentReference, {"velocityVariables" : { "var1" : "value1" }, "attachments" : $attachments})
106 {{/code}}
107 )))

124
125 == General Notes ==
126
127 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema.
