The purpose of this project is to demonstrate Information Card interoperability on heterogeneous platforms written using Java language to support Apache Tomcat, JBoss & SUN Application Server platforms running on Linux or Windows.

Windows CardSpace and InformationCard are SSO (Single-Sign-on) solutions from Microsoft. This project is called JInformationCard as it aims at developing a platform independent plugin for Java-based web application servers, which finally allows to use InformationCard functionality with an existing web application with minimum integration effort.

We have set up a demo site where you may start right away with testing JInformationCard functionality. Please provide feedback afterwards so we can improve it further.

JInformationCard is published under the BSD license.
JInformationCard is developed by the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS in Germany.

today we've released JInfoCard 2.0.1. This is a minor bug-fix release based on feedback we've received from our users:

- the framework now initializes the OpenSAML library in the class constructor instead of within a static block, in order to fix an issue with tomcat on OS X and linux. (0 comments)

We are pleased to announce the release of JInfoCard version 2.0.0. This release is a complete rewrite which contains many new features and improvements, including:
- support for HTTP and HTTPS deployments
- support for SAML1 and SAML2 (0 comments)

going forward, we'll be using Subversion for source code access. While the old code will remain available from the CVS repository, all new development (well, more like a rewrite :) is now available through the subversion repo. (0 comments)

We have relaunched our test-page and sandbox. We hope it will demonstrate more effectively the InformationCard-functionalities. Have a look at: (0 comments)

After 2 and a half month we are almost finished with an acceptable version of the java web based platform.
The mini shop is demonstrating Information Card interoperability on heterogeneous platforms using Java language.
This is why we call the community to give us some final feedback on the current code, so that we are able to consider your feedback and improve the source code as soon as possible. (0 comments)
