IF YOU VOTE, VOTE, VOTE THEN PAT & DANIEL WILL HUMILIATE THEMSELVES FOR YOU


Do you want to see Daniel and Pat completely embarrass themselves? Sing a song? Do a dance? Wear diapers? Well . . . We NEED your vote... and we're willing to do almost anything.

SOAWorld have extended the closing date for votes in their Readers' Choice Awards until the end of the year - Dec 31st. And IBM DataPower has pulled ahead of Sun Access Manager/OpenSSO, by 540 votes to 345.

So... If you haven't voted already, go now and vote for OpenSSO in the Best Security Solution category. If OpenSSO wins Pat and I will give you some choices of humiliating things you'd like to see us do and we'll let you choose our fate. We have no shame now vote, vote, vote!!!

What are you smoking? :) :)

Sun’s Metro is not even a product. It’s a set of libraries integrated into glassfish and the esb to support WS\*. It’s geared for coders. Metro has limited market share since it only works inside Glassfish, OpenESB, JCAPS and is far below Microsoft WSE as a WS\* framework for developers.

Oracle? Same deal...

The primary players in SOA/XML security are:
Layer7, IBM DP, Cisco / Reactivity, Alcatel, Intel, Vordel and Sonoa. Even F5 and Citrix have launched XML Firewall modules and Tibco Active Matrix.

I think this survey simply a count of the number of votes cast by employees, customers and their friends; clearly company size rules: IBM is larger than Oracle which in turn is larger than Sun....

I'm smoking opensso, baby!

My blog was not on Metro and I am asking people to vote for OpenSSO, which has large market penetration a active open source community, and kick-butt secure web services capabilities. Also, METRO is embedded in OpenSSO so anyone who votes for OpenSSO is also voting for Metro.

Cheers,
D

Dan the monkey man,
Can the opensso "kick-butt secure webservice" secure a WebWervice published by .NET, Mono, WebSphere, Apache or Oracle applications? Or only WebServices published by Glassfish?

Wow. Patronizing tone.

Yes. We are cross platform. We not only support .NET, Oracle, Websphere, Apache and others, but we can also do token translation and make it standards-based by using standard protocols such as SAML, WS-Fed and others.

Peace out, Senor.

Sorry Dan, not meant to be patronizing but the docs and samples seem very openSSO centric. Trying to get uses cases from the dev.java.net aliases etc only point to samples shipped that illustrate two OpenSSO systems talking to one another. Scant docs or samples showing interoperability.
Peace :)
