Cleaner Common Tasks Pages

Cleaned up the Common Tasks Pages after receiving an email from The Smoking Monkey. Basically, we reduced the page content by hiding the inline help for each field; and showing the help message only when user clicked on the information icon. In this manner, the pages are cleaner.

WAR Configurator

OpenSSO has a very cool and convenient way on setup-ing up its WAR (Web Archive) file i.e. deploy the WAR in your favorite web container (caution: some web contains like WebSphere an d WebLogic requires some prior permissions setting); visit the deployed URI; enter a some basic information; hit the Configure button; and the WAR is configured.

You can choose to have the configuration datastore as OS file system; Sun Directory Server; or Microsoft's Active Directory. The latter is recently added. (thanks to our contributors, goodearth and Dr. Aravindan).

You will be redirected to the Login page and you log in as the default super administrator, "amadmin" (this is not clearly documented that "amadmin" is the one, we will fix it). And it is done (configured).

The major issue is when the WAR configurator fails, it is difficult to figure out what went wrong. Because the configurator JSP does not provide an installation log.

we are working on fixing this (please bear with us :-))

OpenSSO: Nightly and Stable Builds

There was a question on the stability of OpenSSO nightly bits. "Are they stable?" "Can we tag one of the builds as stable build?"

There are some answers.

It took us about 9 months to open source the Access Manager code base, We did code clean up; move to an open source test framework; add more comments to our code (so that external parties can understand the logic better); etc. During this 9 months, we are also committed to ship Sun Java Enterprise System's Access Manager 7.1. So, we have two CVSes, one for Access Manager 7.1 (which is private to our team) and other for OpenSSO (which is public to all). We are constantly sync-ing up these CVSes. i.e. whatever got fix in private CVS goes to OpenSSO CVS.

Much of our QA effort are spent on Access Manager 7.1. Theoretically, OpenSSO code base is stable because it is based on Access Manager 7.1. However, we cannot be certain because we did code clean and minor refactoring on OpenSSO code base.

Now, we are almost done with Access Manager 7.1, and soon we will have a QA certified nightly build and we will tag it as "stable".

OpenSSO: Development Process Docs and template

Development Process Docs and template

Pat has posted the OpenSSO Development Process Document and a set of document templates.

Our engineering team is following this process (internally) before we open source the code base. Now, we open it to all OpenSSO contributors.

And, we have also published a set of coding guidelines. [Here]
