Class AccessControlException

All Implemented Interfaces:

@Deprecated(since="17", forRemoval=true) public class AccessControlException extends SecurityException
Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
This class is only useful in conjunction with the Security Manager, which is deprecated and subject to removal in a future release. Consequently, this class is also deprecated and subject to removal. There is no replacement for the Security Manager or this class.

This exception is thrown by the AccessController to indicate that a requested access (to a critical system resource such as the file system or the network) is denied.

The reason to deny access can vary. For example, the requested permission might be of an incorrect type, contain an invalid value, or request access that is not allowed according to the security policy. Such information should be given whenever possible at the time the exception is thrown.
