btw, especially if Penn starts using this, I am interested in the Grouper change log sending STOMP or AMQP messages (e.g. to ActiveMQ), and the Grouper client consuming them (similar to how it works with XMPP right now)...

ActiveMQ integration is something I've been hoping to look into, especially after hearing JimmyV talk about how they're using it to provision identity data out of the Central Person Registry at Penn State.  

Looks like a prime candidate for a CIFER-recommended tool to use for provisioning and integration tasks when an event-driven message based solution is appropriate.

Here is something I have been working on, let me know any thoughts, perhaps we could discuss at the dev call on wed.  Anyone else interested in using this?
BTW, I hope Penn and Penn State (and Brown?) can document some lessons learned on general ActiveMQ configuration / loadTesting / configuration / etc.

ActiveMQ is an open source application messaging middleware service where applications can send messages to other applications (or groups of consumers) in real-time without polling.

Grouper can be used to manage ActiveMQ authorizations. University of Pennsylvania and Penn State are interested in this component.

ActiveMQ users can send/receive messages to topics/queues, and also can dynamically create topics/queues. Grouper permissions can be exported and kept in sync (cron'ed and real-time) with a local permissions store. An ActiveMQ plugin reads the local permissions and enforces the rules.

The Grouper-ActiveMQ component is a jar that you can add to the ActiveMQ system (along with a few other jars), and some configuration that allows authorization managed from Grouper.
