should be independent of any particular policy expression language.
Instead it should be use case driven and ease-of-use oriented. The
project is inspired by the effort and experience gained with WS-Policy
and other policy languages for web services in project Tango. Unlike

to approach the policy domain in a much more general sense and to
enable policy features in a wide spectrum of Java SE and Java EE
applications. Fabian Ritzmann writes: "We are currently working on
