Normally, when a non-authenticated user navigates to eXo Platform, he will be redirected to the Login form of eXo Platform for authentication. However, when the OpenAM integration is enabled, he will be redirected to the OpenAM login screen where he provides his credentials. By logging into OpenAM, he will then be redirected to eXo Platform without login again.

i. OpenAM is deployed on Tomcat at localhost:8888.
ii. eXo Platform (Tomcat or JBoss) is deployed at localhost:8080.
