The following sample demonstrates the steps required to run a Security Token Service (STS) client. The STS will provide the service of issuing a security token to authenticate a user for your client application, using WS-Trust protocols.
The WS-Trust STS needs to be configured. You can do this by following the instructions found here.
Running the STS client
The code for the sample can be checked out from the GitHub repository. To do this, follow the instructions on the Downloading a Sample topic.
Build the client using
mvn clean install.
Once the client is built successfully, run the
sts-client.shfile in Unix or
sts-client.batin Windows. You can see that the SAML token issued from the STS is being printed by the client.
The "connection refuse" error occurs in a situation where the STS client attempts to send the received SAML token to a service that is not running in this case.
