research and development activity
The presented work is from an operational prototype
varies from experimental to more mature
a production-level service is in planning
The gap between
services’ needs and supporting middleware infrastructure
What we have today
does not properly support mobile
does not properly support three-tier,
services that interacts with services
(data in other adm.domains)
Complex setup (SAML)
Complex cross-federation setup
Non-intrusive etherpad plugin
No external dependencies whatsoever!
Not even simplesamlphp ;)
Uses Feide Connect for
authentication and groups.
Setup with auto-configure
service to service
service to platform
«Federated» iframes with isPassive=true
Adobe Connect Widget demo
Can be used «anywhere»!
Just copy and paste a short JS sniplet.
Can easily be setup to adopt surrounding
group environment, to set «current group».
Fully controlled authorization and access
controll for Adobe Connect. No pre-
configuration whatsover for endusers.
feed Widget demo
Widget push shared news or any «activity» to
Another widget presents «news» within a
group in a collaboration service (Liferay)
Shows an aggregated feed of activities for the current
selected group across all collaboration tools.
Can be easily integrated anywhere. Will share a link to the current web page
to the activity stream for the current user in a selected group context.
