Hi all,
   (Shane will add more info to this thread soon)

Shane has been driving the standalone IDM API/Implementation project in 
the PicketLink umbrella. This is a brand new project.

The Key classes/interfaces are:

The Manager has a simple api for user/role/group.  Now each of these 
types (User,Role,Group) is an IdentityType (implying they get attributes).

So for an user, if you want to store/retrieve/represent certificates, 
password recovery Qs, you can do so as attributes.

Currently implementation is done using JPA.

There is plan to do an LDAP implementation.
