Preview Version of Website
By jimgris on Dec 17, 2008
A preview version of the new opensolaris.org portal and authentication system is out for some early alpha testing. In stages, we are entirely replacing the current opensolairs.org, which is a brittle monolithic web application we outgrew years ago, with a modular and flexible webapp we can scale with well into the future. What Alan put out the other day is the new authentication system he wrote integrated with xWiki. The auth application will be the center of the new system with client applications accessing its database. In this case, xWiki is a client and there will be many other client apps to come. Also implemented here is the new community roles and groups proposed in the draft OpenSolaris Constitution. The application is not skinned at all, so it's totally raw. We are just testing the wiki, user data migrations, rights management, etc. Give it a kick. Post feedback to website-discuss. Everything "website" tagged in my blog.
