Hi Tony,

Here are the comments for the remaining file.

- line 621, is there a particular reason to return immediately when 
s.ids is null? If there is, it should be commented here. The 
get(ServiceList s) method will fall back to s.type and s.algorithm when 
s.ids is null. Would be nice to state the reason for the difference in 
- line 698, the method name "compare" seems a little misleading, it only 
compares type and algorithm and it returns boolean instead of integer as 
the compare in other classes. Maybe names like "lookup" or "match" would 
be better...
- line 705, there is no check on "t" being non-null, why not use 
type.compareToIgnoreCase(t) instead?
- line 710, exact match on algorithm? I thought u will support partial 
match, e.g. AES entry matching AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding request. Why don't u 
use "toString()" in the debug output as it provides more info.
- line 722, why is "type" not included in the toString()?
