First Major Milestone

OpenSSO has finally gone live. We have been working on open sourcing the core source code of Sun Java System Access Manager for almost a year. The work was mainly in re-organizing the code base; adding more commenting/javadoc to code; and writing architectural documents.

So what is next?

We are

  1. converting our unit tests to testNG test suites.
  2. open sourcing more agents code base. (Currently, the Apache Web Agent's source code is open sourced.)
  3. adding more samples to illustrate how to use the Session, Authentication, Realm Management and Service Management APIs.

Well, this is near term plan. I believe more tasks are awaiting. :(

I believe that the fun part of working on an open source project is that it gives me more opportunity to interact with engineers outside Sun Microsystems. In my blog, I will write about my work on OpenSSO project. The fun and pain aspect of it. And, we welcome you to be part of this project. You can be code contributors, content providers and testers (wanna write some testNG testcase, believe me. it is really cool. Thanks to Cedric Beust and Alexandru Popescu). Or you can just download the product (as WAR file), deploy it and provide us with feedbacks.

Hi Dennis. Same comment as to Mark, do we have any simple tutorial for SSO for Web Apps? See Legolas' comment. Thanks, - eduard/o

Hi Eduardo I have added some samples in OpenSSO CVS. They are to demostrate authentication on the client application; and also how to write a simple (Hello World like) authentication module.

Under the amserver's directory, type "ant samples"; and you will have a set of samples generated. One for client and the other for server. The former is a zip file and the latter is a deployable war file. Instructions are in the archives, so unzip/deploy them to read them. Please try them; and send your comments/questions to users@opensso.dev.java.net or post a note on https://opensso.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectForumView

Thanks
