Re: [higgins-dev] new IdASRegistry

When we first discussed the registry, a few F2F's ago, there was a notion that the registry would hold a binding of a context and a particular context factory. Different factories might allow different operations/views of a given context, so it's important for a user to keep using the same factory in order to get a consistent experience. I don't see anything in the current proposal that supports this. Do we still believe that it's needed? Do we believe that different factories will indeed have different behaviors? (Even if this behavior is subtle, such as different ways of updating attributes, it might be confusing if the user sees differences.)

Hi all,

Since I didn't get much feedback about the new XRI/XRDS based IdASRegistry, I am wondering if you guys (especially Jim and people working on Context Providers) had a chance to look at it.

I would like to check it in soon so we can get this running, and it will definitely break a few things. The changes will include replacing ContextRefs with ContextIds in the IContextFactory interface.

The relevant Wiki pages are:

If noone objects I propose to commit this in a few days.. Let me know if I can help with anything.
