      It really depends on how comfortable we're at the quality of the code prior to release. The release is coming soon. :-)

    Hi Paul,

    We are trying to create our own virtual System Patterns and we are experiencing some problems.

    Is there some examples of scripts packages with other products than IBM products ?

    We just want to create a patterm with 3 machines, and a script to configure a serve with Apache Load Balancer to connect with 2 Apache hhtp server. So, open a file, add a line in this file with the 2 http server IP addresses, re-run the apache server.

    And it's not very clear in the SCP documentation and in the IWD documentation on how to proceed...

    Thanks for your help
