In October I published a posting on Identity Interoperability based on a PoC I created of TechEd Europe Developers 2008 and our local DevCamp 2008 conference. The prototype was based on Codename "Zermatt" on the Microsoft-side and on NetBeans 6.5 Beta 2 as well as Metro 1.3 / WSIT Beta at this point of time... As I had to demonstrate the prototype within a customer engagement I updated the stuff to Microsoft Geneva Framework Beta 1, Netbeans 6.5 RTM and Metro 1.3 / WSIT RTW. Well, there have been some changes which essentially where driving me crazy... therefore I thought I'll give you an update and show, how you can make identity interoperability reality between those platforms with
Again I will discuss all the necessary details for making my samples running on your machine...
Sample Downloads for this posting
First of all, download the samples for this posting which I've updated from Zermatt to Geneva Framework Beta 1 and from Netbeans Beta to Netbeans 6.5 release and Metro 1.3 / WSIT RTW here:
Before you can begin with the action make sure you download and extract the following packages to your local machine. I use the directory "D:\IdentityInterop2008" as a base directory... when you see this in one of the screen-shots map to your local base directory!
Code Changes from Zermatt to Geneva Beta 1
I had to update my code as there are some not very well documented changes from Zermatt to Geneva Framework Beta 1;) There are two cool blog postings by Yossi Dahan summarizing the breaking changes:
The download of this post also contains the updates of my demos from TechEd Europe 2008 developers...
Installing the Pre-Requisites on Java
As for the .NET-side the installation-process is pretty straight-forward (install Visual Studio and it's SP1 which includes .NET and then install Geneva Framework and you're done;)) I just outline, what you have to do on the Java-side to make things working...
Make the .NET-side running on your machine
Now that we have anything installed on the machines we can start making things running on your machines. For the Microsoft-side the first step is installing the certificates in the localhost's certificate store. For this purpose follow these steps:
Make the Java-side running on your machine
After you've setup the Java-configuration as outlined before, the only things left are (a) opening and configuring my web service project and (b) configuring the certificates of your Glassfish domain. For this purpose follow these steps to make things running:
Now you're done, everything is fine and the identity-interop experiment was successful... hope you enjoyed it and hope that this helps you in the future in your projects...
Have a nice weekend
