Subject RE: [RESULT] Retire Heraldy from Incubator
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2007 15:45:38 GMT
All,

BTW, Higgins is another project to consider.

Unlike any other open source project I can think, of Higgins has a
protocol-neutral point of view. We think the world needs a set libraries for
creating IdPs, agents, and RPs that support all popular protocols (OpenID,
CardSpace/WS*, SAML, Liberty, Shib, etc.) and are available in P*, Ruby,
Java, C++, etc. 

WRT to RP code in particular, I had thought that Heraldry would be the
natural place for this code. So a year ago I supported the creation of
Heraldry, especially as Higgins at that time was focused on creating
protocol-neutral code for IdPs and identity agents. 

Now that the Higgins IdP and IdA code is coming together, we see the need
more than ever for the RP libraries. Our intent is to re-invent only where
necessary and instead collaborate with other efforts where the IP of the
contributions is clean. 

Interest, energy and resources are ramping up within the Higgins community
to work on RP libraries. We're interested in reaching out to anyone who's
interested in working with us. Higgins is open to all. And we're not just
about Java anymore. Novell has been doing a ton of work on C++ versions of
Higgins components, as an example.

If you're interested in talking to us, feel free to email me, mary, jeff
(cced) or the higgins list.

BTW, if you're not familiar with the Eclipse Foundation, think "Apache
Foundation" and you'll be headed in roughly the right direction.
