Sample Application Startup Guide

This document provides instructions for installing, configuring, and using the sample applications bundled with the PingFederate Java Integration Kit. The applications let you test an end-to-end identity provider (IdP) and service provider (SP) integration with PingFederate using this integration kit.

This distribution also includes Java source code, server pages (JSPs), and style sheets. You can modify them to change the behavior or appearance of the sample applications. You can also use them as reference when developing your own applications. We have included the source code to demonstrate methods integrating Java applications using the OpenToken application programming interface (API).

The Java Integration Kit sample provides a configuration archive that automatically configures PingFederate to act as both an IdP and an SP.

  • The IdP server is configured to look up authentication information via the OpenToken Adapter and create a SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) assertion to send to the SP for single sign-on (SSO).
  • The SP server is configured to forward this information, again via OpenToken, to the SP sample application to create the local user session. The SP server is also configured to send authentication requests to the IdP on behalf of local users.
CAUTION: The Java applications and configuration archive in the Java Integration Kit sample are for reference only. We do not recommend that you use them in a production environment.
