Subject Re: counterpart to openaz-xacml-pdp-rest

Hi Pam,

thanks for sharing the links. Yeah, curl etc does certainly do it but I was just wondering
whether there is a PEP/PDP engine implementation or at the very least a test which integrates
with the rest module remotely [1].

I’ve looked into [2] but it seems the StdPepAgentFactor/PEP agents instantiated here use
a local PdpEngine instance rather than the remote web service/servlet.

In case I end up implementing an PEP agent/PDP engine using a remote service, is that worth
implementing such it can be contributed back to openaz?

Thx, dirk
