OpenAuth support for CXF

by lmoren for Apache Software Foundation

The OAuth protocol enables a service consumer to access protected resources from a web service provider through an API. The API gives service consumers access to services without requiring that users disclose their service provider credentials. Apache CXF is an open source services framework. CXF helps you build and develop services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. The project purpose is to secure CXF services with OAuth protocol.
