What Is Zero Config?

OpenLink's ZeroConfig functionality allows the OpenLink administrator to define sets of database connection parameters using the Administrative Assistant. For instance, the OpenLink Administrator may hard-code the Request Broker host and port, database name, database username, and database password in a ZeroConfig Data Source. Existing ZeroConfig Data Sources are broadcast over the corporate network. End users may create Data Source Names from scratch. Alternatively, users may select a convenient ZeroConfig Data Source Name. Use of ZeroConfig Data Sources allow novice or non-privileged users to connect to the database using an immediate and reliable set of connection parameters.
