   we need an xml configuration for IDM. We have not started with it.  
We will be using Stax parsing (and not JAXB).  The xml configuration 
will be used by users if they incorporate idm (and nothing else from the 
PL stack).

For the project PicketLink, we need one xml configuration file (if an 
user wants) - authentication,authorization,federation,social, idm etc 
can be configured in one file. For this, we will be extending the 
federation 2.1 stax parsing to encompass the other components. We have 
picketlink.xml as the config file in 2.x

Integrating projects such as RESTEasy, JBoss AS, GateIn etc will have 
their own configuration that deals with the IDM configuration API directly.
