Class LoggingPermission

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Guard
public final class LoggingPermission
extends BasicPermission

The permission which the SecurityManager will check when code that is running with a SecurityManager calls one of the logging control methods (such as Logger.setLevel).

Currently there is only one named LoggingPermission. This is "control" and it grants the ability to control the logging configuration, for example by adding or removing Handlers, by adding or removing Filters, or by changing logging levels.

Programmers do not normally create LoggingPermission objects directly. Instead they are created by the security policy code based on reading the security policy file.
