It’s the happy hour, with a double release day at ForgeRock.
OpenAM 9.5.2 has just been released, along with the J2EE Agents 3.0.3 and are now available for downloads from ForgeRock. You can find the release details in the Release Notes.
OpenDJ 2.4.1 has also been released today. The patch release can be found on the Downloads page in various forms: Java WebStart Installer, Zip package or SVR4 package. The Release Notes have been posted on the Documentation wiki.
The first book on OpenAM, the open source web single sign-on and federation project, will be released very soon (it should be Jan 21st 2011), and it’s been written by one of my former and well esteemed colleague Indira Thangasamy.
I haven’t reviewed the book yet, but I’m expecting to have a review copy in my hands pretty soon (thanks again Indira and Packt Publishing).
However, if you want to get a feel of the book content, Indira has posted a very detailed table of content of the book, and some background information about it. I’m really looking forward reading the book and discovering some hidden gems of OpenAM. Also, this will help me to rethink the way the Configuration Store and User Store are considered and help improving the integration with OpenDJ, the Open source LDAP Directory services in Java, currently used as the embedded configuration store.
The book is already available for Pre-Order.
