OAuth and libraries

I have been reading about OAuth at this site

and OAuth does not have an independent IdP, but instead redirects baack to the server, and requests the resource owner to enter a uid and pw on the server.  The server then returns a acess toekn back to the client

So there is never actually an independent IdP.

The following is the 'code' page for OAuth, and the context I am using is Java:


My question:  Is the java libraries to be used by the client, or by the server

The samples on that site provide both, server and client.

>> A Java library and examples were contributed by John Kristian, Praveen Alavilli and Dirk Balfanz

This has a provider (server) at http://oauth.googlecode.com/svn/code/java/example/ and its client consumer at http://oauth.googlecode.com/svn/code/java/core/consumer/
