Bray 2.0 is a tool based on the NetBeans Platform that assists in creating valid Data Flow Configuration (DFC) files.
The DFC Specification was developed to provide a standardized way for defining, validating, and approving data flows for use on cross-domain guarding solutions. A DFC document specifies key entities such as security domains, guards that facilitate data between security domains, data flows that describe how data travels between security domains, filters that transform and validate the data and more.
The Bray product is in development at Fulcrum IT (http://www.fulcrumco.com).

...and more to come! New features for Bray are constantly in development including use of the NetBeans Visual Library, language support, and more.
