Hi Ashok and all.
Ashok, welcome to this mailing list! In your previous e-mails, you
introduced a theme on WS-Policy. Specifically, you asked the communities
1. examples of usage of WS-Policy in various areas along with use cases
where WS-Policy capabilities have been stretched/revealed their limits
2. any further work (in addition to the ones you mentioned) around
integration of XACML with WS-Policy
3. any concerns about the fact that policy assertions are not ordered
and use-cases/examples where ordering of these assertions is required
Would anybody in this mailing list like to share their view and/or
experience with WS-Policy?
Is any of you currently using or experimenting with WS-Policy?
Please feel free to share your comments and opinions.
