Facebook Connect

Is it possible to implement SSO with Vaadin and Facebook?

Will the GWT integration work?

Thanks in advance.

I’m not familiar with Facebook Connect but I’ve implemented SSO-like authentication with both Google Accounts (

Without knowing how the GWT integration thing works I’d guess that you don’t need it. Just access the Facebook API from the serverside code at the appropriate time, probably in Application.init() or TransactionListener.

Hello Mike,

I’m also interested in integrating Facebook-Connect in my application. Can you please share your experience, how to do it?
