General integration API

edited October 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
It would be interesting if (finally) one project like Vanilla starts to think about and make some API to integrate with other systems. What I mean is "why to modify table and database to integrate"? It would be simple if the systems are made to accept "calls" like "add user", "change password" and so on. Then every systems will store the specific user information, roles, privileges. And a system can be passive (accept incoming calls) or active (make calls to others systems). It would be simple to put up a generic API form SSO (single sign on) where a user in a system (eg. the forum) can jump to another system (eg. the gallery) without re-login. The discussion is open: I made such a system in Java for a customer, and there are many solutions out there. But it would be innovative to make this thing for PHP.

    This would be a painreleaver. Vanilla seems to be the one system furdest along the way of makeing integration into existing sites and user-management systems. But it still is quite demanding in the absens of a simple intergation API. You still have to digg quite deep inte the inner logic of the application if you try to write your one autentication module, and you also have to make changes to an existing databse schema. I am in the midst of trying to intergrate vanilla in one of my sites where I use PEAR-Auth for autentication. Has anyone any experience of making a singel-signon solution between vanilla an PEAR-Auth?
