RE: [equinox-dev] Higgins project and "user context"

Hi Jay,


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 question.

I am a little familiar with the Higgins project, though I admit I haven't looked at it much since before it was renamed.

Like everyone else, I too have "day job" responsibilities which make my participation here sporadic.  That said...

It sounds like a lot of what your proposing is very much (almost identical) to the JAAS Subject and LoginContext.

Can you elaborate on the similarities and differences ?
