Happy Father's Day

Father's Day has been great so far. We started off this morning by opening gifts. The kids gave me some new framed pictures, as well as a whole bunch of huckleberries. I couldn't ask for better gifts. After that, we headed out to breakfast at my favorite joint, Pete's University Park Cafe. From there, we headed up to Tiny Town and rode around on the "Choo Choo Train". We stopped for ice cream on the way home and now I'm sipping a cold one while watching the US Open. Life is good. :-D

Thanks to my Dad for being such an inspiration - I hope I'm as smart as you someday Pappy. Can't wait to see you in July!

Hi Matt, Your children are beautiful! You are very lucky, you should be the happiest father in the world! They are the best gifts from your wife for Father's Day, isn't it? I have two chidren as well, my daughter is four and half and my son is two. If I guessed right, your children are around the same age. It's so much fun to watch two of them play together. My daughter drew my husband a happy father's day card yesterday and put her name and her brother's name and my name on the card. She wrote my name as Mommy Pan, it made my day:-) I am sure your have tons of stories like that too. I work at GE Global Research Center, we are developing an application and we want to use Appfuse as the framework. I downloaded the latest version of Appfuse. My question is how I can unplug the Acegi Security Package from appfuse? I found a documentation from the Wiki about removing Acegi and reverting to CMA. But it only works for 1.8 and doesn't work for the verson I installed because it told me to Modify metadata/web/filters.xml to remove the "securityFilter" definition and its associated mapping from metadata/web/filter-mappings.xml, but there is no such files in that directory. Could you please give me a quick guide or point me to the documentation on how to do that? Thanks in advance for your help! Best regards, May

To remove Acegi Security from AppFuse, you should be able to remove the securityFilter (and it's mapping) from web/WEB-INF/web.xml. Are you looking to remove security completely, or just replace it with CMA? If you're reverting to CMA, is there a technical reason?

Thanks Matt for your advice. I would like to remove security completely. The reason for doing that is my company has a sigle sign on security package and we are required to use that instead. Thanks again for your help and have a good day! -May

You may be able to hook your single sign-on package into Acegi. It currently supports SiteMinder and Yale's CAS, but has extension points to add others.

Many thanks for your quick response! It will be great if I can hook up our single sing-on package with Acegi. I need more advices form you on how to do that. I hope it won't be too complicated since we are on a tight schedule.

Envy you aha ............

May - I haven't done any single sign-on intergration with Acegi, so I probably can't offer you much help. Which single sign-on package are you using?

Posted by Matt Raible on June 21, 2006 at 09:23 AM MDT #

Hi Matt, I am not sure what single sign-on package we use. Maybe the easiest way for me is to disable Acegi for now. Thanks
