Touching Legacy Mode in OpenSSO
By docteger on Jul 18, 2008
Legacy mode in previous versions of the code that was open-sourced as OpenSSO is based on the Sun Java System Access Manager 6.3 architecture. There is no longer a legacy mode installation option in OpenSSO. Legacy mode is supported through upgrade only; if you have Sun Java System Access Manager 7.0 or 7.1 installed in legacy mode, you can upgrade to OpenSSO and keep it in legacy mode. Also, if you have Sun DS with AM schema installed, you can use the legacy mode features with the AMSDK data repository plugin.
There is no timeline set for removing legacy mode but it is strongly recommended not to use this option.
So don't touch legacy mode anymore - instead take a listen to Kim Wilde's 1984 UK hit, The Touch. Loved this song (and album) back then and I also love the pretty girls at the beginning of the video which never made it to this side of the pond until now.
