Prototyping a new admin web console for EJBCA

This is the first sneak preview of the new admin console that we are working on. The new admin console is currently scheduled for EJBCA 4.1, which is due in 2011. We'll see how the progress goes though, if we can include a beta earlier than that.
The new admin console is uses a modern JSF web framework, giving it a modern look and feel. Of course there is AJAX :-)

Check the movie below to see what the prototype offers. In the first step we have focused on making the CA administration and easy to use as possible. It should be easy to get an overview of your CAs and easy to make the simple tasks, operating on one or multiple CAs. Editing CAs (and profiles) will use a tabbed interface, removing the rediculously long list of options there is today. Instead we can hide the advanced features behind tabs that you don't need to open unless you really want to.
Other usability features will surely be added.

Please feel free to provide feedback on the current prototype, aspecially the ideas on how to manage CAs.

Or watch the video on YouTube.
