Subject: Google Code Project Provides an Enterprise Java XACML Implementation

Can someone put this link in the Implementation section of the TC web

Thanks in advance,


Google Code Project Provides an Enterprise Java XACML Implementation
Zian Wang, Software Announcement

The 'enterprise-java-xacml' Google Code Project provides a high
performance XACML 2.0 implementation that can used in the enterprise
environment. A first release has been announced; the software is made
available under the Apache License 2.0. Enterprise Java XACML intends to
fully implement OASIS XACML 2.0 and will support XACML 3.0 in the
future. It is a totally independent implementation. It fully implements
XACML 2.0 core standard and has passed all conformance tests. It
provides PDP that can accept XACML requests and returns XACML responses.
The software is said to offer a highly effective target indexing
mechanism that greatly speeds up policy
searching: completely cached decisions that can speed up the evaluation,
and completely cached policies that can speed up the evaluation. It
supports a plugable data store mechanism: users can implement their own
data store by implementing only a few interfaces; a file data store
implementation is provided. It features a plugable context factory:
users can implement their own context factory that wrap request/response
in a specific format, and a default implementation is supplied. A
plugable logger mechanism means users can implement their own logger
mechanism: "I've provided 2 types of logger, one is log4j, the other is
a default logger; if log4j conflicts with user's system, they may want
to use this default one."
The tool supports an extensible XACML function registering mechanism;
users can write their own functions and register them to PDP and then
use in policies. The extensible attribute retriever mechanism means that
users can write their own attribute retriever to retrieve attributes
from external systems. It provides simple PAP APIs that can be used to
produce XACML policy files; users who want write an XACML policy
administrative UI can also rely on these APIs. Both XACML APIs and an
application framework are supported, which means users can incorporate
this implementation by calling XACML APIs from their own applications.
The implementation also provides a standalone application framework that
users can start and directly send XACML request to it for evaluation.
The software is distributed with unit tests and conformance tests
against XACML 2.0.
