We are fortunate to have to opportunity to attend the hands-on lab session (LAB-5410 : Using Identity to Secure Web Services) conducted by Dr Aravindan. This is a dry run session for JavaOne.
We learned how to use Sun Java System Access Manager and Glassfish Application Server to secure web services. It is very easy to setup and configure the profiles for securing web services. There are 5 exercises in the lab. Once we have completed them, we have a good understanding of how it works. Many things appear to be seamless when we are configuring and running the exercises because under the cover Glassfish and Access Manager are doing the heavylifting.
To have a glance of how we secure web service, download Java EE 5 SDK Update 3 Preview 1 With Tools Bundle; and more information here (This sample is using a calendar service as illustration, In JavaOne, LAB-5410 uses stock quote service.) I recommend that you attend LAB-5410 in JavaOne 2007 so that you can have a better understanding of how things work; and Aravindan will be there to answer your questions.
