With the Eclipse Application Lifecyle Framework (ALF) Project 0.8 release this summer, ALF provides a framework and platform for an authorization, Single Sign-on, and conveying identity among SOA- based development tools.

ALF chose the most promising emerging standards for security and web services, combined them with open source implementations from Apache Axis2, and mixed in elements from the Eclipse Higgins project to provide an authentication framework for a SOA-based integration of development tools.

The result is that ALF provides a platform and framework for both Single Sign-on and the conveying of identity among all the tools invoked in a BPEL process that coordinates interactions among development tools. The initial focus of the ALF SSO framework is on authentication, but it lays the foundation for the authorization, integrity, and confidentiality aspects of security to be natural extensions.

Come learn about these exciting new capabilities in Eclipse and gain from the lessons learned in transforming the concept and specifications into a practical implementation of working Eclipse code.

Brian is the Project Lead for the Eclipse Application Lifecycle Framework (ALF) project and a Fellow at Serena Software. He has been developing software professionally for 40 years, the last 25 of which have been focused on developer tools and infrastructure. A former graduate lecturer in the Information Technology department of Johns Hopkins University, Brian has been a popular speaker and project leader at GUIDE, the OMG, Eclipse, and has presented at numerous industry events. Professional interests include SOA and web services, extended set theory, knowledge representation, and data modeling.
