Over the next few months, the OpenSSO writer's team will be moving our deliverables from docs.sun.com to our new documentation wiki. I've started rewriting chapters from the Administration Guide to close a myriad of issues filed against the book so I decided to put the wiki URLs with the new text out for public review and comments. Click to read the first (albeit simple) chapter, Logging In To The OpenSSO Console. I envision the information in Logging In To The OpenSSO Console as an explanation of the login process and what the user might see after logging in. What I am looking for from the reviewers is what other console-related infomration might be worth mentioning. This would only be from an administration/interface perspective. This is not the chapter to refer to customizing the console as that would most likely have already been done by the time an administrator begins to log in. Thoughts? Comment here or on the wiki. Coming later this week: Chapter 2: Organizing Data Within Realms In the meantime, here's Cyndi Lauper as lead singer of Blue Angel performing Maybe He'll Know. She's a charmer!

Between blog entries, I am writing the Sun Java System Federated Access Manager 8.0 Technical Overview. Aside from writing about new features, this book also includes updated material first written for Access Manager 7.1, the SAMLv2 Plugin for Federation Services and Federation Manager 7.0. Towards that lofty goal, I have finished a draft for the chapter entitled Implementing Federation. This chapter collects information regarding the federation protocol available in Federated Access Manager 8.0. I've sent the chapter to internal Sun engineers for review but I also want to hear from the OpenSSO community. A PDF of this chapter is available for your perusal here. If you have any ideas on what might be missing, or comments on what is currently included please feel free to leave a comment or email me. Since I'm gonna be strong when I read all these comments, here's Gene Pitney singing I'm Gonna Be Strong. This man has one of the best voices; I never tire of hearing the old records (yes, records) that I have of his. Cyndi Lauper, one of the best female voices, covered I'm Gonna Be Strong when she was the lead singer of Blue Angel in 1980 (and then again on a solo album). Here's a clip of Cyndi singing the Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil classic with Blue Angel. I also covered I'm Gonna Be Strong (a cappella, mind you) when I was performing songs and pithy comedy eons ago. I shall find that video tape and one day make this couplet a triplet. That should be scary!
