OpenSSO Enterprise 8 unveiled…

OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 visual
Yesterday, OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 was launched in SecondLife.

In a very well attended session, Daniel Raskins and Jamie Nelson showed how OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0, known in its last release as Sun Access Manager, adds many new features, as well as being the first commercial release from the open source OpenSSO project.

What impress me most with OpenSSO Enterprise is the amount of work that has been put on user experience, simplifying the life of developers, deployers and administrators. With new features such as the embedded OpenDS LDAP server as the configuration store, the Fedlet, the Identity Services or the Java Web Start Installer

Check out a replay of the SecondLife Launch to get a sense of all the cool new features and capabilities.
