Subject [DISCUSS] Amber proposal
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 14:32:04 GMT
Hi all,
a couple of months ago, Simone Tripodi started an Apache Lab called Amber
proposing an independent implementation of OAuth that could be used as a
library by other projects, then at the Apache Retreat in Dublin, David
Recordon gave a speech about OAuth v2 and Stuart Williams said he had a
nearly complete implementation of OAuth v1 that he wanted to contribute. So
we decided to get in touch with Simone Tripodi to contribute to the Amber
Lab and also to ask on the OAuth IETF mailing list if anyone was interested
in a standardized Java API/implementation for OAuth v2.

In a few days we received many enthusiastic answers, and among them also
people from other Apache projects having partial or unmaintained
implementations of OAuth specs in their projects that are willing to

So, we decided that it was worth to file a proposal for incubation, and we
started writing one here : .

As you can see, there are still many TODOs and we are waiting for some
confirmations, but it's probably time to have people on this list informed
and obtain some feedback and guidance on how to complete our proposal.

Please let us know. Any comment, advice or participation is welcome.

Simone Gianni
