    Jboss XACML and PolicySet's

    James Mackie Newbie

      Hi there,

      I have a question in relation to the JBoss XACML library and it's implementation of Policy sets.

      Looking at the examples in the user guide we are told that:

      The interface org.jboss.security.xacml.interfaces.XACMLPolicy represents either a Policy or a PolicySet and is represented in the method in the PDP when you want to pass a set of pre-constructed instances, as shown below


      And by looking at the example code, I assume this means that PolicySet's are represented by a Set of XACMLPolicy objects. IE, Set

      But I was wondering how, using this method, to specify the PolicySet specific XML attributes and tags, for example, and possibly more importantly, , etc?

      I ask because I am trying to implement the XACML RBAC profile using the libraries object model, and I'm not sure how to do it without these PolicySet specific tags.

      Cheers,
      James

          Sorry, the forum ate my <'s and >'s hehe.

          I'll try the last bit again:

          And by looking at the example code, I assume this means that PolicySet's are represented by a Set of XACMLPolicy objects. IE,

          Set<XACMLPolicy>


          But I was wondering how, using this method, to specify the PolicySet specific XML attributes and tags, for example,
          <PolicyCombiningAlgId>
          and possibly more importantly,
          <PolicySetIdReference>
          , etc?

          I ask because I am trying to implement the XACML RBAC profile using the libraries object model, and I'm not sure how to do it without these PolicySet specific tags.

          Cheers,
