MDQMetadataProvider

Overview

Indicated by type="MDQ", this MetadataProvider loads metadata on-demand from an HTTP server using the conventions defined by the Metadata Query Protocol draft specification (see base protocolSAML profile). This is essentially the same as the Dynamic MetadataProvider with a slightly simpler configuration syntax to automatically generate the appropriate URL substitutions.

The baseUrl XML attribute is also required, to point to the root of the MDQ server.
