GlassFish is to SJSAS as OpenSSO is to FAM...

GlassFish and OpenSSO play very similar roles; they are OpenSource, transparent, community-driven efforts to create enterprise products, except OpenSSO has an extra twist...


GlassFish is the Community for SJS AppServer 9.x and OpenSSO does the same for Sun Federated Access Manager (FAM). The twist is that FAM is not yet out.

FAM is the combination of the Access Manager and the Federation Manager. Once FAM is out, you can say: GF/SJSAS == OpenSSO/FAM.

So, go ahead and Download, Evaluate and Deploy OpenSSO!
