Ok,

So I just logged in (or I think I did) with WebID to your Pool Party

  https://pilot5.poolparty.biz:8443/PoolParty/index.jsp

I know you told me this, but it's important for others who want to try it out: Chrome does not work currently. One needs Firefox for this.

So really it is very difficult to use your service because I have no idea when or if I am logged in. You need:

 - a test page where I can try out your login, and you can tell me if I fail to authenticate or not
 - at the minimum something that say "Hello bblfish" or "Hello Henry Story" or something of that nature. Many plus points for extracting the image from my foaf.

  Without that we cannot make any claim to have something that is easier to use than OpenId, OAuth or any of the other protocols.

  As far as the documentation goes the link you gave me seems to be password protected
   https://grips.punkt.at/display/POOLDOKU/PoolParty+-+Quick+Start+Guide


  One thing that I do think is *very_cool* is your technical discovery, pointed out today in the telconf that
you can use the web.xml file to turn authentication on or off per resource. Web.xml is a standard way to set servlets.
As you said during the telconf

[[ 
the tomcat-webID realm is exactly analogue to tomcat-memory-userdatabase-realm, 

see here http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/realm.html
tomcat webID realm source code : https://sourceforge.net/p/webidrealm/code/

Is there a URL I can see that with? Like a URL where I can see something on PoolParty where I don't get my certificate requested, and one were I do? 

I had a quick look at your code. Where is the WebID Authentication taking place?

I like the idea of having it up as a wiki where members of this group can login with their webid and edit it. I think that would be a nice little use case too.

This can then be very useful in helping us provide guidelines for what formats people should support when deploying webid profiles, and for adding elements to the spec in a way guided by deployments.
