Difference between High Interactivity and Standard Interactive application?
Ans: Standard Interactivity mode resembles most traditional Web applications. Page refreshes occur often, such as when users create new records, submit forms, and browse through lists of records.
Customer applications are deployed in Standard Interactivity mode.
High Interactivity mode is designed to resemble a Windows client. It supports fewer browsers than Standard Interactivity mode, but it includes a set of features that make data entry easier for users. For example, page refreshes do not occur as often as they do in Standard Interactivity mode. Users can create new records in a list, save the data, and continue browsing without a page refresh having to occur.
Employee applications are typically deployed in High Interactivity mode.
Other features supported by High Interactivity mode are:
  • Browser scripting.
  • Implicit commit, which allows the application to automatically save a record when the user steps off it.
  • User interface features, such as drag and drop column reordering, drag and drop file attachments, keyboard shortcuts, smart controls for calendar, calculator and currency functions, and applet scroll bars.
What is LDAP and how it can be used?
Ans: LDAP is a security adapter. One can set up LDAP to authenticate a user for access to a single Siebel application when the user does either of the following:

  • Logs in while on an unprotected view, such as a Siebel application’s home page
One must do the following tasks to set up a typical security adapter authentication architecture:
  • Set up a directory from which a database account and a Siebel user ID can be retrieved for each user.
  • Set up a security adapter as a plug-in to the Application Object Manager.
  • Edit the eapps.cfg file to provide authentication parameter values.
  • Edit the configuration file for each Application Object Manager to provide authentication parameter values.
  • Edit authentication-related parameters in the Name Server of the Siebel Gateway.
