Hi,

your broken link is here:
http://docs.forgerock.org/en/openam/10.0.0/dev-guide/index.html#chap-fedlet-java
We DO support Java AND .NET fedlets currently, however the doc might be 
in "early" stage at the moment...

Regards,
Peter

> About a year ago, I successfully made an existing Java Servlet operate as a SAML2 Service Provider by using the OpenAM 9.5 Fedlet code. I did this for this for several clients.  The clients' applications act as the idP, and my application acts as the SP.  (The client applications are not using OpenAM.)
