OGCE Gadget Container GridShib Support

The OGCE gadget container now includes GridShib support as part of the default build.  We use GridShib to decorate TeraGrid community security credentials with logging attributes: the authentication instant, the user's email address, the user's browser's IP address, and the user's gadget container user name.  All installation and configuration steps are handled by the OGCE build process: "mvn clean install" handles the jar deployments and resource configuration files.  Decorated credentials can be used or exported to other services.

GridShib is optional, and gadget container deployments not using it will work as normal.

OGCE Gadget Container Part of Apache Rave Incubator

The OGCE Gadget Container is being contributed to the Apache Rave incubator project. The ultimate goal is to produce high quality software for running production Open Social containers.  See for more information.  We will continue to develop the OGCE gadget container in the interim until Rave is ready to release.  We will also extend the Rave core to accommodate the requirements of Science Gateways.
