Per my action items in the last dev call:


1.       I posted the GridGrouper web services API (at least I think this class is the API, if someone wants to correct me, let me know and I can make changes… also I assume I can post this since the source is on a public webpage)


2.       I changed the first part of the web services wiki page to have a core operations that we will implements for the first release of web services (per the discussion at the dev call).  Maybe I took this too far, but I listed 4 operations.  Please give feedback (e.g. if you need more, and what the specifics are).

3.       I joined the axis-users list, and I asked how Axis upgrades affect generated XML.  Will let you know the results


Kind regards,


I can not comment on the page Chris so I'll send them to you via this mechanism.

Under "Proposed Operations":

Configurable Batch limits seems to be a good idea with -1 or 0 being unlimited.  A configurable error message to be returned on batch size violations might also be appropriate.
Batching "isMemberOf" seems strange to me - I can not see many use cases where I want to batch check membership in a group unless I was attempting to build a batch for "unassignMembership".
For a "lite" version, would a member filter on "isMemberOf" even be useful (assuming that "all" would always be the member filter)?
I would like to see something to the effect of "listAllGroupsForSubject" - this would be most beneficial.

I have more thoughts on authorization too and will forward them to you when I have had a change to work through them get them down in writing.
