(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.
