Subject Re: CXF support as web services stack in opencmis
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 11:38:41 GMT
 Hi Oliver,

 There is no active development around CXF support at the moment (see 
 [1] why).

 But what you want is a custom authentication provider [2]. The easiest 
 way to build one is to copy the standard authentication provider code 
 [3] and modify it. We (SAP) have implemented SAML support for our 
 infrastructure. So that's doable. WS-Trust STS might be trickier, but 
 certainly possible.

 Apart from that, you might want to consider using a different binding. 
 The Web Services binding is pretty slow compared to the other two
