  1. Discuss next version architecture
    • All of the Founders agreed on the new (next) architecture
    • The architecture supports more flexible "Contexts". The Contexts can now define a unique Service (JNDI,SPML,etc.) for a specific Operation (create,read,update,delete,etc.)
    • Context will now "link" four components together: Definition, Service, Association, AttrGroup instead of just two: Subject and Service. This model is much more flexible and address limitations and redundant data in the configuration
    • The Element "Subject" is now called "Definition" to match the Java Code
    • An Attribute, within a Definition, supported "Transformations/Transforms" ... these are now called "Functions/Tasks" to support the validation of attributes that will not actually modify the Attributes
    • A "Defaults" Element was added. These defaults are evaluated when the XML file is processed. These default Properties are accessible by other parts of the XML file.
    • A "Security" Element was added. An "Encryption" Element was added to support the encrypting of values.
