    discuss in details

    Or before that do some search. Forums are better suited to answer a particular point rather than to give general direction found already over the web. A Google search for oauth vs openid gave me for example http://softwareas.com/oauth-openid-youre-barking-up-the-wrong-tree-if-you-think-theyre-the-same-thing/ or http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3376141/openid-vs-oauth (that links again to the same article) and much others.

    In short, it explains quite nicely that OpenID is about authentication while OAuth is about authorization. And I just searched for you responding with things I found within 3 minutes.

    Now if you have some kind of coding issue or a problem in doing  something particular, asking in a forum is good as you are then in a particular situation and may not find easily something that would match your exact situation.

    If you have a general question please take few minutes to search for this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=open+id+vs+oauth and to use the already existing material.
