OpenAM (OpenSSO) + Liferay 6.2

We are starting OpenAM integration by considering we have setup OpenDJ with Liferay. See http://www.liferaysolution.com/2016/03/opendj-liferay-62.html

Also make sure that server have enough JVM memory allocation using below line in startup.bat
set JAVA_OPTS=-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Xms128m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=64m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m
