Deploying and Testing the Fedlet on the SP
There are two options for deploying the Fedlet, see the following for details:
To deploy the Fedlet on the SP, you require the following:
The configuration files, as created in "Creating and Configuring the Fedlet".
The Fedlet WAR file, provided in the
Fedlet-7.1.0.zip, within the AM distribution file;
fedletdirectory, in the home directory of the user that runs the AM web container:
Copy the fedlet configuration files to the
$HOME/fedletdirectory. The result may resemble the following:
FederationConfig.properties fedlet.cot idp-extended.xml idp.xml sp-extended.xml sp.xml
Deploy the Fedlet WAR file into your web container:
cp fedlet.war /path/to/tomcat/webapps
Upon completion, you can proceed to "Testing Fedlet Single Sign-on and Single Logout".
The Fedlet WAR file,
fedlet.war, serves both as an example and also to provide the code needed to embed the Fedlet in your web application.
The basic steps for using the Fedlet in your application are as follows:
Unpack the Fedlet ZIP file to a working directory, remove any files you do not want to keep, such as
fedletEncode.jsp, and merge the Fedlet files with those of your web application.
To integrate single sign-on into your application, modify the functionality in the
fedletSampleApp.jsppage or add it to your application's logic.
If you add it to your application's logic, then you must also edit your application's deployment descriptor file,
web.xml, to set the assertion consumer URI, which by default is
/fedletapplicationin the basic SP XML for the Fedlet. Add
servlet-mappingelements as shown in the following example.
<servlet> <servlet-name>yourapplication</servlet-name> <jsp-file>/your-application.jsp</jsp-file> </servlet> <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>yourapplication</servlet-name> <url-pattern>/fedletapplication</url-pattern> </servlet-mapping>
Build a WAR file from your web application with embedded Fedlet files.
This is the version of the application to deploy. When you deploy your WAR file, also provide the Fedlet configuration files. For information on where to put the configuration files and how to deploy the WAR file with embedded Fedlet, see "To Install and Configure the Fedlet as a Demo Application".
Testing Fedlet Single Sign-on and Single Logout
To test single sign-on and single logout from the Fedlet, go to the Fedlet URL. For example,
Try one or more examples from the Fedlet home page:
You can log in to the identity provider with username
