The Fedlet is a small footprint SAMLv2 JAR that can be deployed with a service provider application. It handles only SAMLv2 identity provider initiated POST profiles. The application in which it is embedded can then consume a SAML assertion to identify the user and identity attributes. The Fedlet uses your installed JDK to log its authentication access and errors (single sign-on successes, single log outs, etc.). By default, it uses the configuration defined at
JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/logging.properties. You can set the logging level to FINEST to see more details. For additional logging information, you can modify
fedletSampleApp.jsp. More information on that modification can be found here. For debugging, the location of the file is defined in the OpenSSO file,
FederationConfig.properties. And when done logging, check out Kenny Loggins singing (and Kevin Bacon foot-syncing) in the music video for Footloose.
