Moving Java Forward with Identity API - JSR 351
By Naresh Persaud on Dec 07, 2011
With the momentum toward cloud, mobile and social, many developers realize that Identity Management is critical to the success of these projects. JSR 351 is a community proposal intended to address how Identity Management fits into the Java standard. Driven by a community of customers and vendors, the API would standardize Identity Management objects used in applications. The specification is targeted for compatibility with Java SE and Java EE beginning with version 6. For a complete timeline and details see the slides.
