Sample application

To assist you when integrating your web applications, the entire sourcecode to the sample 'demo' application is included in the src folder of the Crowd download archive, and is (optionally) configured when you run the Setup Wizard.

The 'demo' application highlights best practices when using the Crowd framework, and can be used as an example when integrating your own web applications.

To access the 'demo' application, go to http://localhost:8095/demo.

SSO and the 'demo' Application

The 'demo' application uses the Spring Security framework to implement authentication. It supports single sign-on (SSO). To try the SSO functionality, assuming that you have installed the 'demo' application along with your Crowd installation:

  • Log in to Crowd. For example, Crowd may be at this address:


  • Open the 'demo' application in your browser. For example, the 'demo' application may be at this address:


    You should find that you are already logged in to the 'demo' application.

  • Log out of the 'demo' application.

  • Go back to Crowd. You should find that you are also logged out of Crowd.
