Subject: RE: [xacml] New Functionx for XACML 3.0

How about we pick up the string handling functions from XPath 2.0
function library?    That may simplify implementation.
We would need to generalize its semantics to deal with XACML data model,
but the basic functionality (and names) should be similar.

I am not sure what an "integer-contains" function would mean.

Subject: [xacml] New Functionx for XACML 3.0

I'd like to propose a number of new functions for the 3.0 release of
The new functions in the current 3.0 draft are predominantly conversion
functions, such as "boolean-to-string".

I think we should take the opportunity to add some string manipulation
functions that have simple mappings to underlying functions in common
programming languages.  For example, "string-starts-with" and
"string-ends-with".  At the moment this functionality can be only
implemented using regular expressions, which is computationally
or non-standard functions such as those available in BEA's WebLogic

As a starting point, I'd like to propose the following functions:
 - <type>-starts-with
 - <type>-ends-with
 - <type>-contains
 - <type>-substring
 - string-equal-ignore-case

Where <type> is either string or anyURI.
