Today we recognized a problem concerning the openID login with yahoo.com on the Imixs BPM Portal.
using the officical yahoo URL "http://yahoo.com" did no longer work. This wasn't a problem form the OpenID4Java module we use. Also other OpenID Login modules like the one provided by Liferay Portal did not work with "http://yahoo.com".
The problem seems to be something with the yahoo servers outside the united states. Logins e.g from german web servers failing with a HTTP 404 Error.
This problem can be fixed using the yahoo OpenID url "http://me.yahoo.com"
We have changed this on the Imixs BPM Portal.
that I have started a project site to provide a platform for further
discussion and development. You will also find souce code from the OpenID-JSR-196 Login Module and a wiki page on the project site:
