Java Virtual Machine: Java 6
Database: MySQL 5.5
Using OpenId to authenticate, and no such user is present in the database with the same email address, the user will either be created automatically if all required information is provided by the OpenId Provider, or they will have to go through an account creation process.
In the case of the latter, they will also need to provide a password for their Liferay account which they bypass when their account is created automatically. In both cases however you have to provide a password for your account
When authenticating with OpenId, a password for Liferay is not needed, as you are using an external service anyway.
