FYI, there is a discussion list over at sourceforge for this project, 
where a bunch of SunXACML users hang out. If you've got specific 
questions about the implementation, you should try sending mail that

As others have suggested, SAML is a good approach to this. Also..

Right. This has nothing to do with the SunXACML code, but with how 
networking code works. When you close the stream, only then does the 
XML handling code know that the data is finished, and then it starts 
parsing the tree. What you need to do is write your own network handler 
that reads input, sees when the transfer is complete, and only then 
parses the data. If you look in the archives of the sunxacml-discuss 
list you'll see others asking about this.
