[higgins-dev] Re: Your latest thoughts on whether metadata can/should be complex or simple?

Yes, I need to pick this item back up.  Last we talked about it was on the IRC on 6-5-07.

Mainly, we were talking about how to do updates to the model, but we also came to the determination as a side note that metadata should be complex.  For that topic, I logged  I just logged for this item and marked it as a P1 for 0.9.

Hi Jim,


If memory serves, you have been considering once again allowing complex metadata, although this is not currently the case in the IdAS API. Is this still your inclination? I ask because currently we have a disconnect between IdAS API and HOWL semantics. HOWL is one design iterations behind and thus still allows complex metadata.
