New java version resolves Active Directory bug for SSGD

There was a small bug regarding password changes during the authentication process when Sun Secure Global Desktop (SSGD) is using the Active Directory authentication. This bug was a bug in the underlaying Java of SSGD. A new version of Java is available since this week with a fix for this bug.

Information and instructions to upgrade the Java version for SSGD see the blog post on Mr PotatoHeads blog:

A deep dive in the Alps

Last week I attended the "Deep Dive in the Alps"-event (officially know as Software Technical Event @ Sun Grenoble Engineering Center).

Lots of new information, too many things to put in one post. Therefor I will make multiple posts about the Deep Dive in the Alps :)

A small starter:

An Enterprise portal is a framework for integrating information, people and processes across organizational boundaries. It provides a single point of entry and is designed to aggregate information through application-specific portlets.

"Portals unlock business processes and resources for external access,
while maintaining the security, identity and access controls"

- The Burton Group

The current portlet version (1.00.901) is working for SSGD 4.2/4.3/4.3.1
Since there have been made changes in the authentication a new portlet will be created. The new portlet will make use of the new Web-services for SSGD.

Although the dive in the Alps was deep,
