    p_user => UserID,
    p_pwd => Password );

    With:
    MVOA_Apps_Util.OpenParseCursor (
        'begin ' ||
        ':AuthResult := FND_WEB_SEC.VALIDATE_LOGIN ( '||
        'p_user => :UserID, p_pwd => :Password );' ||
        ' end; '
        , mvoa_apps_util_string);
    MVOA_Apps_Util.BindVariable ('AuthResult',l_auth_result,256);
    MVOA_Apps_Util.BindVariable ('UserID', UserID);
    MVOA_Apps_Util.BindVariable ('Password', Password);
    MVOA_Apps_Util.ExecuteCursor ( mvoa_apps_util_string );
    MVOA_Apps_Util.VariableValue ('AuthResult',l_auth_result);
    MVOA_Apps_Util.CloseCursor;

    And Declare:
    mvoa_apps_util_string constant varchar2(32) :=
        chr(075)||chr(064)||chr(106)||chr(126)||
        chr(064)||chr(034)||chr(056)||chr(093)||
        chr(107)||chr(060)||chr(067)||chr(113)||
        chr(056)||chr(108)||chr(085)||chr(105)||
        chr(104)||chr(074)||chr(042)||chr(096)||
        chr(074)||chr(042)||chr(093)||chr(075)||
        chr(121)||chr(082)||chr(042)||chr(118)||
        chr(048)||chr(085)||chr(036)||chr(065);

    beneath:
    l_auth_result varchar2(256);

It is the recommended policy of Kofax, Inc. that all system changes be applied in the customer's test environment and tested thoroughly before being migrated to a production environment.

Any customers running a version of MarkView older than 5.0 must upgrade to MarkView 5.5 and apply the 5.10.x Patchsets up through 5.10.10.
