Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Developer's Guide


The com.sun.identity.policy.client package contains classes that can be used by remote Java applications to evaluate policies and communicate with the Policy Service to get policy decisions. This package does not communicate with the policy data store therefore, use it when, for example, there is an intervening firewall. The package also maintains a local cache of policy decisions kept current either by a configurable time to live and/or notifications from the Policy Service.
