Beta Release: ID-WSF 2.0 Web Services Client Library

Asa Hardcastle, OpenLiberty Technical Lead, has announced the beta release of the ID-WSF 2.0 Client Library ("ClientLib") that will help developers more easily build and deploy a wide range of new relying party (identity-consuming) applications. ClientLib uses OpenSAML's Java XML Tooling, SOAP, and SAML2 Libraries.

From Asa's blog entry: "Over the next few months we'll be writing more code and doing some interoperability testing. The ClientLib includes support for ID-WSF Authentication Service (PLAIN and CRAM-MD5), Discovery Service, a non-standard Profile Service, and Directory Access Protocol Service (ID-DAP). Both signed and unsigned messaging is supported.

"This release marks excellent progress, but there is still a lot of work to do. The beta is not bug free nor is it thoroughly tested. It is ready for other people to sink their teeth into and give feedback, make requests, or write some code. For development purposes we are currently testing against two ID-WSF WSPs and have access to a third (HP Select Federation) which we hope to have working with the library before Version 1 release planned later this year."
