Fedlet started out as "SAML2 lightweight SDK" 2 years ago with a small prototype with a UI to show levels of integration points. I recall Jamie demonstrating the prototype to customers in Canada and the surprisingly strong positive reactions it got. Congratulations to the Sun Federation team for productizing this into the neat concept it is today, to our friends in Canada (you know who you are) and to our energetic marketing team for coming up with the catchy "Fedlet" name.
I wonder if things would have been the same if we had kept the original "SAML2 lightweight SDK" name; likely not !! My lesson on how it takes a entire team to make anything successful.
