Below is the documentation available for version 3.0 of the Shibboleth Identity Provider. Documentation is split up in to two parts: documentation meant for individuals that are deploying and managing an Identity Provider and documentation meant for individuals that are developing custom extensions for the Identity Provider.
As a point of information for current and future deployers, the project has made the following platform/version decisions that may impact planning:
- Java 7 (support for 8 is expected but not guaranteed since it's unreleased). NOT supporting Java 6 or earlier.
- Servlet API 3.0 (this is required for the Spring Framework's current releases)
- Use of 3.0 implies that some older containers (Tomcat 6, Jetty 7) won't be usable
