Catch-all page for misc issues related to the IdAS API


addEntity(URI entityType, String entityID)

  1. To create a blank Entity just set the entityId param to null. Do we agree on this?
  2. Should we define IContext.addEntity(URI entityType) as a convenience method to create blank Entities?



  1. If called on a blank Entity does this return null?


  1. Calling remove() removes the Entity and all of its associated attribute instances (although the javadoc doesn't say this) and the simple values of these attributes --complex values are not removed. Do we all agree with this?


  1. General question: are blank Entities discoverable using the IFiler interfaces?
