It is one of my childhood ambition to write books and see my writings
on the print.  I have written few articles in Tamil and English but
those are not more than 10 pages. I kind of believed that I have a
penchant for writing, in the past I have authored lot of technical
documents as part of my job for customers consumption.


When the editors at Packt publications
approached me about the possibility of authoring a book on OpenSSO, I
have readily accepted the offer hoping to complete the book in couple of
months. Later realized it took a month to even scope out contents of
the book, There are lot of information that can be shared about
OpenSSO/OpenAM, I have rather decided to focus on the access management
features before jumping on to web services security or a full fledged
federation services. There are many items that are in the book not
available in the public documentation, I grew from the ranks to a senior
manager in the Access Management organization served almost a decade on
OpenSSO and its predecessors alone, so I had to condense my ten years
of technical experience in to 200 pages book, that was one big
challenge.  Original plan was to complete  the book in 8 months, but it
took little over a year, partially the delay was attributed to
Oracle/Sun acquisition where I had to undergo another round of approval
from Oracle management to pursue on this book. Most of my Sun blog http://blogs.sun.com/indira contents are in the book.
