>                 Key: JS2-870
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-870
>             Project: Jetspeed 2
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Admin Portlets, Persistence and DAO, Security
>    Affects Versions: 2.2
>            Reporter: Ate Douma
>            Assignee: Ate Douma
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 2.2
>   Original Estimate: 168h
>  Remaining Estimate: 168h
> The current User/Group/Role Preferences are tied to the Java Preferences API.
> JS2-869 will provde a new, simplified and more efficient preferences model doing away
with the Java Preferences.
> For the User/Group/Role security principal elements this will require a drastic API change
but also allow for better and improved integration with the backend systems.
> The Portlet API USER_INFO attributes need to be mapped (filtered per portlet application)
to the User attributes.
> Furthermore, full backend integration needs to be provided so for instance LDAP can be
used for storage/retrieval as well. This will require large enhancements to the LDAP api (which
currently doesn't support mapping custom attributes yet). 
> Finally, the admin portlets need to be enhanced to provide retrieval and (optionally,
if the backend supports/allows is) modification of attributes per User/Role/Group.
