Hi,

There is a Swings application that currently requires the user to logon using Windows Credentials. Since the user is already logged on the windows machine, I would like to implement SSO functionality in this application so that the user does not have log on again.

Please suggest some free open source framework that will help in achieving this in a swing application running on windows.

Thanks.

I'm not sure that's possible for client applications on Windows.
This article mentions support for accessing the native GSS-API of the operation system:


To make Java GSS-API use native GSS-API, Java platform applications must explicitly enable this behavior by setting one or more of the following system properties.


Unfortunately, in case of Windows operating systems:

Note: These two system properties are ignored when applications run on operating systems that do not yet support this feature, for example, MS Windows.

The Java GUI toolkit is called Swing, not Swings with an s at the end.

It's Swing, not Swings. What Jesper said just before me...
