Policy Management Library - overview
The Policy Management Library (PML) implements key components of a well-known policy management architecture, and provides a generalized policy model able to support arbitrary policy languages. Details are provided in the section below. The library fully supports the Java binding for CIM-SPL (PDF, 858 KB) policies, a recently approved standard from the Distributed Management Task Force. PML provides conflict, coverage, and dominance analysis building on the Apache Imperius project, which provides the parser, Java-binding, and policy evaluation engine. Finally, policies written in Groovy are also supported, although without the policy analysis feature that is available for those written in CIM-SPL.
