O4W to Support OpenID
As of release 10.0, OpenInsight’s O4W product will have support for OpenID, an industry standard protocol for logging into websites.

O4W will seamlessly allow you to login in to your OpenInsight environment via the Internet using the OpenID protocol.
OpenID allows you to use an existing account to sign in to multiple websites, without needing to create new passwords.

You may choose to associate information with your OpenID that can be shared with the websites you visit, such as a name or email address. With OpenID, you control how much of that information is shared with the websites you visit.

With OpenID, your password is only given to your identity provider, and that provider then confirms your identity to the websites you visit. Other than your provider, no website ever sees your password, so you don’t need to worry about an unscrupulous or insecure website compromising your identity.

OpenID is rapidly gaining adoption on the web, with over one billion OpenID enabled user accounts and over 50,000 websites accepting OpenID for logins. Several large organizations either issue or accept OpenIDs, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Microsoft, AOL, MySpace, Sears, Universal Music Group, France Telecom, Novell, Sun, Telecom Italia, and many more.

The O4W login screen will have an option to use OpenID to login. Selection of this option will display a list of OpenID providers. The user selects an OpenID provider, fills in their OpenID username, and clicks login.

Workstations running OpenInsight 9.x are required to run the clientsetup.exe program to install several client-side tools required for OpenInsight to operate correctly. Each version of OpenInsight has a matching version of clientsetup.exe. Only one version of the client setup tool should be installed at any one time. Sometimes during troubleshooting or version upgrades it is necessary to completely remove all of the client setup components. The script provided in this knowledge base article provides a thorough and fast method to remove all of the client setup components. READ ON...

Did you know...That OpenInsight's database management system is based on pluggable storage implementations, called filing systems. The most common example is Linear Hash, which is implemented by the RTP57 filing system function. The configuration information for those filing systems, which primarily defines the set of tables available to an application, is stored persistently (i.e., is not lost when you log out of OpenInsight) in a .DBT file.

In OpenInsight terms, a table is available if it is attached, and thus can be opened. As a result, without additional coding, a table is not available unless it is in the application's .DBT file. READ ON...
