OpenLiberty-J Client Library for Liberty Web Services (ID-WSF 2.0), the global open source community working to provide
developers with resources and support for building interoperable,
secure and privacy-respecting identity services, has announced the
release of OpenLiberty-J, an open source Liberty Web Services
(ID-WSF 2.0) client library designed to ease the development and
accelerate the deployment of secure, standards-compliant Web 2.0
Applications. will hold a public webcast to review
OpenLiberty-J on April 2, 2008 at 8 am US PT. OpenLiberty-J enables
application developers to quickly and easily incorporate the
enterprise-grade security and privacy capabilities of the proven
interoperable Liberty Alliance Identity Web Services Framework into
identity consuming applications such as those found in enterprise
service oriented architectures (SOAs), Web 2.0 social networking
environments and client-based applications on PC's and mobile devices.
Released as beta today under the Apache 2.0 license, OpenLiberty-J
code is available for review and download at
OpenLiberty-J is based on J2SE, and open source XML, SAML, and web
services libraries from the Apache Software Foundation and Internet2,
including OpenSAML, a product of the Internet2 Shibboleth project. The
library implements the Liberty Advanced Client functionality of Liberty
Web Services standards. Developers can immediately begin using the
OpenLiberty-J code to build a wide range of new identity applications
that are secure and offer users a high degree of online privacy
protection. "With the release of OpenLiberty-J, developers now have a
comprehensive library of open source code to begin driving security
and privacy into applications requiring identity management
functionality," said Conor P. Cahill, Principal Engineer, Intel and
OpenLiberty-J contributor. " encourages the global open
source community to begin working with the code and welcomes contributions
to further the evolution of OpenLiberty-J as the project moves from
beta to general availability later this year."
