OpenSSO Download Page Changes
By docteger on Nov 26, 2007
Last week I attempted to explain the myriad downloads available on opensso. This week we modified the OpenSSO download page so it is more concise and understandable. This page will hopefully be used as is for eons to come. With the new version you can download:
fam.zip, this file includes the deployable
opensso.warweb archive, relevant Sun libraries, administration tools, samples, and the client SDK. It contains code culled from the
federationdirectories. NOTE: Some of these items are themselves compressed files within the compressed
opensso.zip; for instance,
opensso.zipis the most complete download available. I say most complete because it does not contain a few of the authentication modules based on third-party code. Build 1 is the most recent stable version of
opensso.zip; Build 2 will be available soon. The
opensso.zipdownload under the Periodic Builds table is pushed twice a week. Within the ZIP, you can use
opensso.warto create specialized WARs to deploy, for example, the console or Distributed Authentication only. Instructions are included in the
deployable-wardirectory. These WARs were previously available as separate downloads.
famclientsdk.jarcontains the complete client SDK including the federation library code which can be used to build a remote federation-based service provider. NOTE: The one change I'd like to see is opensso reflected in the name of this JAR. Although "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds"\*, this consistency is not foolish.
opensso-sun-extlib.zipcontains third party libraries needed to build the OpenSSO source code. See the Build Instructions for information on how to use this.
openssosrc.zipcontains the OpenSSO source code.
