+<p>  Imperius (Simple Policy Language) or SPL - Is a simple standards based 
+        object-oriented policy language that allows expression of management policies 
+        using condition-action rules. Imperius provides an extensible set of over 
+        100 operations for expressing conditions and actions.Imperius is a generalization
+        of the CIM-SPL language. Conversely, CIM-SPL can be thought of as Imperius 
+        with CIM binding. Imperius can be extended to create similar bindings for 
+        other environments. JavaSPL (Imperius with Java binding) is another such example.
