* packaging: `jar`.
If you want to use the experimental features (see previous section) as well, you need to use an extra Maven dependency that has the same groupId/artifactId/packaging but a specific classifier: `tests`.
To get started using a PDP to evaluate XACML requests, instantiate a new PDP instance with one of the methods: `org.ow2.authzforce.core.pdp.impl.PdpConfigurationParser#getPDP(...)`. The parameters are:
