The following are examples of capabilities that can be leveraged by using the Policy Agents to integrate OpenSSO Enterprise with other applications:
Pure J2EE applications
Pure J2EE applications are deployed as WARs installed on J2EE compliant application servers. The resources to be protected include servlets, JavaServer Pages and Enterprise JavaBeans.
Apache or Sun Web Server-based web applications
These applications can be HTML pages, multimedia content, and CGIs such as PHP, Perl, JSP, and servlets hosted on the web server.
.Net /IIS server-based web applications
These include .Net/ASP or ASPX applications such as Visual Basic and C#, HTML pages and content accessible via the HTTP protocol.
These include SAP, Siebel, Domino, PeopleSoft, and Portal middleware.
This use case can include all web applications deployed with a reverse proxy server in front of it. No policy agents or added software are required be deployed on the application and its container. A proxy is installed separately from the application, and the policy agent installation also stays separate. Multiple applications can be proxied by the same proxy server, enabling a single agent to protect them all.
