  2. My Company is using Single SignOn methods for login purpose and keep them alive during the whole session.

    I didnt saw a Websphere server support for JOSSO Single Sign-On, Is JOSSO supports websphere.

  3. Websphere support[ Go to top ]

    There is no support yet for Websphere application server in JOSSO. For making JOSSO support other containers, a custom SSO Agent must be developed, leaving the Gateway as-is.
    If you are interested in developing it yourself, the JBoss Agent sources can give you some direction on how to do this.
  4. JOSSO for WebLogic[ Go to top ]

    I have written an SSOAgent for WebLogic.
    If you are interested, it's on

    Warning: my code is not production ready yet. Still need a lot of testing.

    As mentioned, the security plugin point isn't too bad for websphere, if you look at the admin console, you should be able to code it up with minimal fuss.
