Class AntPathMatcher

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class AntPathMatcher
    extends Object
    implements PatternMatcher

    PathMatcher implementation for Ant-style path patterns. Examples are provided below.

    Part of this mapping code has been kindly borrowed from Apache Ant.

    The mapping matches URLs using the following rules:

    • ? matches one character
    • * matches zero or more characters
    • ** matches zero or more 'directories' in a path

    Some examples:

    • com/t?st.jsp - matches com/test.jsp but also com/tast.jsp or com/txst.jsp
    • com/*.jsp - matches all .jsp files in the com directory
    • com/**/test.jsp - matches all test.jsp files underneath the com path
    • org/apache/shiro/**/*.jsp - matches all .jsp files underneath the org/apache/shiro path
    • org/**/servlet/bla.jsp - matches org/apache/shiro/servlet/bla.jsp but also org/apache/shiro/testing/servlet/bla.jsp and org/servlet/bla.jsp

    N.B.: This class was borrowed (with much appreciation) from the Spring Framework with modifications. We didn't want to reinvent the wheel of great work they've done, but also didn't want to force every Shiro user to depend on Spring

    • Method Detail

      • setPathSeparator

        public void setPathSeparator​(String pathSeparator)
        Set the path separator to use for pattern parsing. Default is "/", as in Ant.
      • isPattern

        public boolean isPattern​(String path)
        Checks if path is a pattern (i.e. contains a '*', or '?'). For example the /foo/** would return true, while /bar/ would return false.
        path - the string to check
        this method returns true if path contains a '*' or '?', otherwise, false
      • matches

        public boolean matches​(String pattern,
                               String source)
        Description copied from interface: PatternMatcher
        Returns true if the given source matches the specified pattern, false otherwise.
        Specified by:
        matches in interface PatternMatcher
        pattern - the pattern to match against
        source - the source to match
        true if the given source matches the specified pattern, false otherwise.
      • doMatch

        protected boolean doMatch​(String pattern,
                                  String path,
                                  boolean fullMatch)
        Actually match the given path against the given pattern.
        pattern - the pattern to match against
        path - the path String to test
        fullMatch - whether a full pattern match is required (else a pattern match as far as the given base path goes is sufficient)
        true if the supplied path matched, false if it didn't
      • extractPathWithinPattern

        public String extractPathWithinPattern​(String pattern,
                                               String path)
        Given a pattern and a full path, determine the pattern-mapped part.

        For example:

        • '/docs/cvs/commit.html' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> ''
        • '/docs/*' and '/docs/cvs/commit -> 'cvs/commit'
        • '/docs/cvs/*.html' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> 'commit.html'
        • '/docs/**' and '/docs/cvs/commit -> 'cvs/commit'
        • '/docs/**\/*.html' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> 'cvs/commit.html'
        • '/*.html' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> 'docs/cvs/commit.html'
        • '*.html' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> '/docs/cvs/commit.html'
        • '*' and '/docs/cvs/commit.html -> '/docs/cvs/commit.html'

        Assumes that match(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) returns true for 'pattern' and 'path', but does not enforce this.
