Replace AppCores with scriptable components


(Core :: XUL, defect, P1)

Windows NT





(Reporter: norrisboyd, Assigned: law)



From Brendan's Architectural meeting notes:

2.2  AppCores (
  should be superceded by XPIDL-declared scriptable components.

  Alecf is leading the way, everyone agrees on the goal, so I'm closing
  this as an architecture action; bugzilla can handle any implementation

This item is important because there is no mechanism for securing access to
AppCores, only to scriptable components.

Not dogfood, but some solution is needed for beta to close the security holes.

re-prioritizing to M12, as warranted by security concerns.  Thanks norris.

No "appcores" are utilized nowadays.  I'm holding changes to actually remove the
mozilla/xpfe/AppCores directory from the build so I'm leaving this bug open till
that happens.
Priority: P3 → P1
Target Milestone: M12 → M13
Move this to M13 since it's not a dogfood issue.

Not required for beta 1.
Actually, XPAppCoresManager isn't defined anymore in the namespace of web
scripts, so the security bugs that depend on this have been resolved. Did
XPAppCoresManager just get renamed, since this bug is still open?
No, all the appcores stuff is no longer used.  It is still built because I
haven't checked in all the makefile/script tweaks to remove it.  This bug is
waiting for that to happen (which I really should get around to...).
Well, i nuked appcores and associated resources on the Mac, god help me.

Should this bug be closed - or is work still required for Windows?
Looks like sspitzer did the honors on win32 and unix Feb 05 2000
and xpfe/AppCores is no longer in the tree.

I'd say it's done, but perhaps there is something else I'm not aware of, so...
Yes, this can be closed now.  It just never had a high enough priority to even
appear on any of the queries I've been working from, sad to say.
