Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

Access Manager Framework

The framework layer is where the Access Manager business logic is implemented. Each core component uses its own framework to retrieve customer data from the plug-in layer and to provide data to the core components. The Access Manager framework integrates all of these frameworks to form one layer in the architecture that is accessible to all core components and all Access Manager plug-ins.
