Entitlement payload changes

Steve noted that the docs for 4.01 note a new Entitlement format...  It 
is now JSON based.

http://www.novell.com/documentation/idm401/readme/data/designer401_readme.html#breug1z

However, in the past it was single string, and then with IDM 3.61 there 
was a tweak to allow I think | (pipe) separated values, for the SAP UM 
fanout drivers.

now we have JSON.

The getEntitlementParameter() function in the LIBAJC ECMA library in 
4.01 knows about at least two of those formats and tries both to figure 
out which is correct.

HOWEVER, many many drivers in existence rely on the fact that the 
payload is a single string, and that you can just take the 'value' of 
the entitlement as the value.

For example in the AD driver, for Groups, previously you would have in 
the Path.xml something like:
<ref>
	<src>UA</src> (or AF, NRF, RBE and more)
	<value>Something</value>
	<id>GUID of the group in AD</id>
</ref>

Now this seems to indicate that the <id> node needs to be JSON, which is 
{} enclosed, key value pairs, (surround by quotes, comma delimited)

So it seems like this is a nice extension to make things more powerful, 
allow more data to be carried in a single entitlement, but from a 
backwards compatability approach, ill advised.

In fact, this seems to me like it would break all sorts of things.

Where is the migration guide explaining how you upgrade existing code, 
drivers, etc to use the new Entitlement model.

Just saying you need to run IDM4 Packaged drivers seems a bit extreme to 
me, as that implies rip and replace, since doing that throws away all 
your customizations.

Getting Session ID and Session ID CHanging
I am building a cart, and when the user first accesses the site, I want to grab their SessionID. For some reason, I cannot get that Session ID when the site first pops up. I have a Session_Start() and Application_Start() function in the global.asax file. My other question is that everytime a page is loaded, a different session ID is grabbed and I am not sure why that would happen. Shouldn;t the Session ID always be the same while the user is on the site or the session timesout? Thanks If you don't use/store something in Session state during a user's Session, it will use a different ...

[SeaMonkey] Important L10n change without string ID change
Hi fellow localizers, I just checked in bug 517596 to SeaMonkey, which changes URLs in localized prefs from a .org to a .com URL with the effect of not breaking with a certificate warning any more when trying to download more themes or dictionaries from the relevant menus in the application. As the ID is the pref name for such localized prefs, we can't change the ID, but all SeaMonkey localizations need to look into this! Fortunately we have just RCs upcoming as the next checkpoint, we'll check for this on the changesets you opt in with - note that we don't wan...

change management
This is what I did to create a process that the Data Architects can follow, 1. Checked out the baseline logical and physical model of a production database into my workspace 2. Manually added an entity, an attribute, and a relationship to the logical data model 3. I was then able to update the physical data model from the logical model as explained by you. 4. Compared the physical model on my workspace to the physical model on the repository and got a summary of all the differences 5. Checked in the new version of the physical data model without creating a new baseline. 6. This ...

Unable to change control ID in VS IDE 2005; reverts to default ID
This problem is vexing for me.  I have VS 2005 Pro edition and when working in an ASP.NET web application (new or otherwise) and I attempt to change the ID of a newly added control, it reverts back to the default ID (e.g. TextBox1). I have searched the forum and was unable to find a solution.  Any assistance or pointers would be appreciated. Thanks, Andy This means for some reason ID was not accepted. Change of ID also invokes renaming control in the code so something may be failing there as well. We could look closer if you provided detailed repro steps, i.e. which ...
