We are trying to create a standalone app that will serve as SAML2 identity provider.
We got the source from both git and SVN, and cannot generate a working war file. There are many war files in the distributions that have no jar files in them. I am assuming that in tomcat and jboss the binaries will be in a shared folder outside the web app.
But in a standalone war file, all the jars have to be in it. It is not required to support the standard Java authentication (which requires an app server plugin).
- Is there a downloadable war file that can be customized?
- Is there a good way to download the source and build my own war files? This way I can change the configuration. Maven cannot do that.
The tutorial explains how to configure an app, but not how to create it. Kind of running before walking.
If there is no known/documented way to build a stand a lone war file, and someone was able to do it, it would be very helpful if you can post a download link. A little bit of reverse engineering goes a long way
I havent seen anything like that. Not for download and not building from source. The maven build process can only generate Tomcat 5/6 and Jboss 7 distributions. There is also no mention of such thing in the docs, or how you can create it.
For example, idp-standalone-1.0.3.SP1.war does not contain jars or classes.
Another question, while trying to understand the source tree, I see the entry point java clases
in a couple of places in the source tree
What is the right place to get them from if I want to build my own war?
