Subject: Re: [xacml-dev] Xacml with J2EE?
Argyn, I have been working on a first step - integrating XACML with the Java Policy API. I've been side-tracked for quite a while by XACML 2.0, but expect to get back to this soon. The current spec is at http://research.sun.com/projects/xacml/J2SEPolicyProvider.html I have learned a great deal since that spec was published, and there are changes that need to be made, but the outline is still valid. Before you ask, no, we can not commit to an implementation of this and can not commit to any availability dates. If you have other ideas for how to integrate XACML with J2EE apps, I would be very interested.
