The assignee for this patent, patent number 8959482, is International Business Machines Corporation Armonk, NY ). Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Managing multiple users of a system typically comprises an inaccurate process with little flexibility. Allowing multiple users to access data within a system may include a complicated process that may be time consuming and require a large amount of resources. Accordingly, there exists a need in the art to overcome at least some of the deficiencies and limitations described herein above. " In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "The present invention provides a method comprising: receiving, by a computing system comprising a computer processor, software comprising an operating system, integrated development environment (IDE) software, and database software; provisioning, by the computer processor, a virtual image instance of the operating system, the IDE software, and the database software to a virtual instance; generating, by the computer processor, a plurality of user IDs for access to the operating system instance, wherein each user ID of the plurality of user IDs is associated with a different user of a plurality of users; installing, by the computer processor, commerce server middleware software as a user specific setup; configuring, by the computer processor, the IDE software, wherein the configuring the IDE software comprises generating workspaces and user ID permissions for the installing; associating, by the computer processor, the workspaces with the user IDs; configuring, by the computer processor, the commerce server middleware software, wherein the configuring the middleware software comprises mapping the user IDs, hosts, and ports to commerce server services associated with the commerce server middleware software; configuring, by the computer processor, the database software, wherein the configuring the database software comprises generating virtual databases associated with the user IDs; and mapping, by the computer processor, the user IDs with the workspaces, profiles for the commerce server middleware software, data sources, and the virtual databases. "The present invention provides a computer program product, comprising a computer readable storage device storing a computer readable program code, the computer readable program code comprising an algorithm that when executed by a computer processor of a computer system implements a method, the method comprising: receiving, by the computer processor, software comprising an operating system, integrated development environment (IDE) software, and database software; provisioning, by the computer processor, a virtual image instance of the operating system, the IDE software, and the database software to a virtual instance; generating, by the computer processor, a plurality of user IDs for access to the operating system instance, wherein each user ID of the plurality of user IDs is associated with a different user of a plurality of users; installing, by the computer processor, commerce server middleware software as a user specific setup; configuring, by the computer processor, the IDE software, wherein the configuring the IDE software comprises generating workspaces and user ID permissions for the installing; associating, by the computer processor, the workspaces with the user IDs; configuring, by the computer processor, the commerce server middleware software, wherein the configuring the middleware software comprises mapping the user IDs, hosts, and ports to commerce server services associated with the commerce server middleware software; configuring, by the computer processor, the database software, wherein the configuring the database software comprises generating virtual databases associated with the user IDs; and mapping, by the computer processor, the user IDs with the workspaces, profiles for the commerce server middleware software, data sources, and the virtual databases. "The present invention provides a computer system comprising a computer processor coupled to a computer-readable memory unit, the memory unit comprising instructions that when executed by the computer processor implements a method comprising: receiving, by the computer processor, software comprising an operating system, integrated development environment (IDE) software, and database software; provisioning, by the computer processor, a virtual image instance of the operating system, the IDE software, and the database software to a virtual instance; generating, by the computer processor, a plurality of user IDs for access to the operating system instance, wherein each user ID of the plurality of user IDs is associated with a different user of a plurality of users; installing, by the computer processor, commerce server middleware software as a user specific setup; configuring, by the computer processor, the IDE software, wherein the configuring the IDE software comprises generating workspaces and user ID permissions for the installing; associating, by the computer processor, the workspaces with the user IDs; configuring, by the computer processor, the commerce server middleware software, wherein the configuring the middleware software comprises mapping the user IDs, hosts, and ports to commerce server services associated with the commerce server middleware software; configuring, by the computer processor, the database software, wherein the configuring the database software comprises generating virtual databases associated with the user IDs; and mapping, by the computer processor, the user IDs with the workspaces, profiles for the commerce server middleware software, data sources, and the virtual databases. "The present invention provides a process for supporting computing infrastructure, the process comprising providing at least one support service for at least one of creating, integrating, hosting, maintaining, and deploying computer-readable code in a computer comprising a computer processor, wherein the computer processor carries out instructions contained in the code causing the computer processor to perform a method comprising the steps of: receiving, by the computer processor, software comprising an operating system, integrated development environment (IDE) software, and database software; provisioning, by the computer processor, a virtual image instance of the operating system, the IDE software, and the database software to a virtual instance; generating, by the computer processor, a plurality of user IDs for access to the operating system instance, wherein each user ID of the plurality of user IDs is associated with a different user of a plurality of users; installing, by the computer processor, commerce server middleware software as a user specific setup; configuring, by the computer processor, the IDE software, wherein the configuring the IDE software comprises generating workspaces and user ID permissions for the installing; associating, by the computer processor, the workspaces with the user IDs; configuring, by the computer processor, the commerce server middleware software, wherein the configuring the middleware software comprises mapping the user IDs, hosts, and ports to commerce server services associated with the commerce server middleware software; configuring, by the computer processor, the database software, wherein the configuring the database software comprises generating virtual databases associated with the user IDs; and mapping, by the computer processor, the user IDs with the workspaces, profiles for the commerce server middleware software, data sources, and the virtual databases. "The present invention advantageously provides a simple method and associated system capable of managing multiple users of a system.
