I am appalled that my good e-friend, James McGovern has jumped the gun and come to an incorrect conclusion that the Oasis XACML Interoperability event at the RSA Conference in April 2008, is just a dolly. You can see James's post here.
Craig Forster, another buddy of mine from IBM, has kind of corrected James here.
In a nutshell, I can say that this interop is heavily focused toward the health care industry and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) is taking the lead in driving this interop (of course with our buddy, David Staggs who is pioneering multiple standards in the health care sector). Let the participants including me finish the interop and then we will rave all about it. I may blog about the interop this week. So if you are interested, stay tuned.
Hey, James, why do BPM and ECM with XACML? Are there no other boring topics? ;) Take a look at the health care use cases. They are complex and affect each one of us (because we use health care).
