Subject: Re: [xacml] Question on Time Extensions

Hi Hal,

I think there is a need for a function that can take a range of weekdays (Monday, Friday) and compare that to the current date's (or any date) day of the week. Do we have that today? For instance, what if you wanted to write a policy that states:
The only way to do so today would be to write a custom function that would extract the day of the week the date is on and then compare to these two.

Steven, is that what you're trying to do?

I have finally taken a careful look at the profile. I understand the need for the timezone attribute to be in multiple categories.

However, I am still stuck on the "equality rule for dayOfWeek" issue.

I am not sure what functionality is desired here. Given two datetimes normalized to the same timezone, determining if they are both in the same day of week or not seems straight forward to me. What am I missing?

It also seems like the same procedure would let you compare a normalized datetime to a dayOfWeek and determine if the former falls in the latter.

Help me out here.
