In this wiki, I try to implement a simple authorization schema without putting much logic inside a file
or into database table. We are constructing authorization hierarchy inside the controller. We are getting
roles for the current user from database table and assigning only roles to user that are declared in the
particular controller. We have brought down the work of loading of auth data at main
application level to controller level. This way we have pulverised auth data for entire site into smaller
units. Finally we are going to look at couple of examples.
