So, you configure your attributes based on columns. Some of the attributes
need to be used as "identifiers" in the findByIdentifier queries. e.g. your
netId, or eppn would be identifiers. Generally everything except the opaque
ID. So you comma separate those attributes which are identifiers in the
value of the XML element. ok? :)

I have in the past used the JNDI source to obtain subjects
from an LDAP directory.

Now I want to configure a JDBC source to obtain subjects from
a relational database.

I am confused about the role of 'identifierAttributes'. In the
default sources.xml for 2.1.0 I see this:

<!-- comma separate the identifiers for this row, this is for
the findByIdentifiers if using an in clause -->

What precisely does that comment mean?

How is LOGINID used?

I cannot find LOGINID used anywhere else in that file. Is that
a typo and it should not have been capitalized?
