OpenPTK is coming ...
By harcey on Jul 27, 2007
As discussed on the Discovering Identity Blog post, we just had a US software meeting where our team demonstrated a project which has been in the works for quite some time now. We are preparing to open source the project and looking into our options and approach.
Here is a photo of Mark taking a photo of us at the event:
The project was started by a few engineers at Sun to demonstrate the value of our Identity products. Here is a brief description:
OpenPTK is being proposed as an open source User Provisioning Toolkit exposing API's, Web Services, HTML Taglibs, JSR-168 Portlets with user self-service and administration examples. The architecture supports several pluggable back-end services including Sun's Identity Manager, Sun's Access Manager and LDAPv3.
A brief overview of the project can be found at the openptk.org site. More information will be coming soon on this project.....
