Our product MyTimetable supports multiple authentication backends, all thanks to Spring Security. Over the last years, we experienced some issues with certain authenticators. To help anyone experiencing the same issues, we summed up the issues we had with Waffle and OpenSSO/OpenAM below.
Over the past year it may have been quiet on this blog, but we have not been sitting on our hands. We upgraded our web sites (more on that later, in another post) and in January we started upgrading our clients to Mytimetable 2.1. Recently, we upped the version number to 2.2. This post gives an overview of the changes and explains our versioning policy.
Recently, we moved a part of our MyTimetable caching layer from Ehcache to Infinispan. We also started to cache more aggressively in order to optimise performance. In this post we discuss some of the challenges encoured when trying to configure Infinispan and JGroups from Spring.
With the launch of MyTimetable at University of Applied Sciences Leiden and Nyenrode Business University, MyTimetable is now available to over 100,000 students in The Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom. MyTimetable has been significantly changed to be able to support other timetabling software more easily.
