  • PicketLink Forge Addon

The PicketLink Forge Addon is a great step to provide a better experience for developers looking for securing their apps. It provides an initial feature set to easily enable Identity Management, Authentication and Authorization to your project using PicketLink. Thanks for George Gastaldi and Lincoln Baxter, from JBoss Forge, for all support during the development of this addon.

Our community was asking for built-in features for Http and Web Security and one of the outcomes of this release is a set of features to easily secure Web-Based applications, including RESTful applications. Given its path-oriented configuration, the new API provides great flexibility with a deep integration with the Java Servlet API. In a nutshell, every single feature provided by PicketLink is now available to secure your RESTFul endpoints, web pages or any other resources in your application.

Another important aspect of this release is about tokens support. PicketLink now provides an API that you can use to create Token Providers and Consumers, considering any token format you want, including support for the JWT and JWS specifications.

Also, an initial work has began in order to provide built-in integration with PicketLink SAML and KeyCloak. You can easily switch between different identity providers without change a single line of business code in your application. In the next releases we’re going to officialy support this functionality. However, if you want to give it a try, please join us at #picketlink on

For last, please take a look at the quickstarts. Some of them were updated to reflect the improvements to the configuration. Specially when using the JPA Identity Store.
