Protocol peep show

While lots of other people are having their fun at JavaOne, I have to content myself with publishing a clearer version of the ProtectServe protocol flows Paul Bryan walked through in our video-recorded IIW8 session.

We originally prepared the flow diagrams using that wonderful tool, WebSequenceDiagrams.com. Paul then doctored the resulting PDF files with a special new technology: overlaying the diagrams with translucent gray boxes that have holes strategically cut out of them, and then — this was the tricky part — moving the holes. (I think Paul is using this special technology as part of his JavaOne session on Designing and Building Security into REST Applications for explaining OAuth tomorrow. He may even have enhanced the special technology by then. Don’t miss it!)

The protocol peep show starts…now.
