Submission + - Oracle shuttering OpenSSO (

mdm42 writes: OpenSSO is one of the best open source web Single Sign On projects out there. Sun Microsystems open-sourced OpenSSO in 2008, so it's sad to see how Oracle (after borging Sun) is shutting down this amazing open source project, labelling it "not strategic" and dismembering the few parts they think are worthwhile for their own SSO product.

They started by freezing the next express release, and during the last few weeks they have been removing all the open source downloads from OpenSSO website and removing content from the wiki.

Fortunately ForgeRock, a Norwegian company, has stepped up to the plate in an attempt to salvage the project under the new name OpenAM
