Hi List, Forum
This post is just FYI, hoping could be usefull for some of us.

I have been seeking for usefull documentations pertaining to OMW Configuration (OMC) on the Knowledge Garten and have found a very good one.
I found answers for some of my previously came up questions (e.g. Is OMC is Cached?, etc.) and som usefull hint/inforamtion too. I suppose, this document could be also usefull for almost all of us.

You can also find many link/reference to other usefull documentations pertaining to OMW/OMC in it.

I, personally, dislike OMW. I won't throw out alot of opinions, but IMHO it is an overdesigned application.

I think most OneWorld shops do very little "development" and a lot of ESUs. Object transfer and object librarian worked well for this type of activity. OMW will not encourage more development: internally, third-party, or otherwise. OMW does not enhance the manageability of ESUs. So who asked for it and why do we have to use it?

Any opinions, contrary or otherwise, are heartily solicited.
