Wow – is it really over a month since my last blog entry? I guess that’s what happens when you get your head down into a project – in this case, building a demo for CommunityOne West and JavaOne 2009 to show off the latest OpenSSO features.
The demo brought together a number of existing Java technologies – the Java Persistence API (JPA), the Jersey implementation of JAX-RS (aka JSR 311) on both the client and server, and JavaFX – with some new aspects of OpenSSO – fine-grained authorization (aka entitlements), OAuth protocol support, and a JDBC data store. Briefly, the demo centered on a cellphone account management system delivered as a JavaFX rich Internet application (RIA) client and a (more or less) RESTful web service back-end, communication between them secured by OAuth.
I’ll be uploading source code for the demo client and server apps to the OpenSSO project in the next few days, as well as documenting how to bring up the demo environment. Watch this space for updates!
