Better OAuth for Java: Signpost 1.1 comes in flavors!

Filed under: Software Development & Programming — Tags: , , — Matthias @ 6:06 pm

Signpost, my client-side OAuth library for Java, now comes modularized, so that you can use it with other HTTP libraries than Apache HTTP Components.

By default, Signpost now only supports signing type requests, which makes the core module completely independent of any specific HTTP messaging layer. Instead, additional HTTP libraries are supported via add-on JARs; adapters have been created for Jetty HTTP 6 and Apache HTTP Components 4.
