Here are a few differences: A Higgins context can contain multiple
digital identities, it allows relationships between DIs, it supports multiple
contexts, and it supports cross-context correlation. But to really answer how
the two should/could go together (and the non-day-job related reason for my
long delay in responding) we’ve started a little project to see what
happens if we try to implement a very simple Higgins IContext that actually
uses JAAS. That way we can learn more about JAAS and properly answer your

much since before it was renamed.
