Likewise, the grouper distribution includes a sample progam called "csv2subject" in the contrib area to enable loading of subjects within the group registry for testing, pending your implementation of a back end to the subject API that uses your ldap directory or whatever to identify and resolve subjects, especially 'person' subjectTypes.

There isn't a way to create subjects in the Subject API because we assumed that sites would want to manage this information via their identity management solution. That said, for loading demo data, the Signet distribution contains a utility to load subject data via a file.

How do you create Subjects and put them in the database? I see no mention of it in, and no way to do it in the grouper api.*
* In spite of the confusingly named GrouperGroup.createSubject(). May I humbly suggest that getter methods always use the "get" prefix? I would be happy to prepare a patch.
