Hi

I suggest that you take a look at the online documentation at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v3r0m1/index.jsp.

Search on 'topoloy examples' and perhaps look at the Enterprise Topology example page.
This will hopefully clear things up.
Yes, you can put WAS and the server on a Windows machine, yes you can put the build toolkit on the IBMi machine. They talk to each other through a TCP connection on a defined port that you would set up. The doc that I pointed you to will give further explanation.

Hi

IBMi is a supported operating system for running the server on. Also, as your posting suggests, even if you plan on building things to run on IBMi you do not have to run the server there if you don't want to.

So Do i need to setup the WAS on System i or on Windows. ?

Well i just though that if i put the BUILD TOOL KIT there instead of installing on SERVER . Or complete RTC Setup is done on WINDOWS so is that work for the SOURCE control and other things ?

I think you can install WAS on Windows for RTC server, and the build tool kit installed on System i. So RTC Server for source control and work item/plan, maybe you should use RDp for RPG editor/compile(ofcourse need one system i for compile), System i with build tool kit is for RTC build which may run one build agent.

sakulisalee . Yes offcourse RDp and RTc client will be use for compilation of codes and other things. But i Was Thinking If i put the Build Tool Kit and Agent on the System i . How these things intract with the Windows Server as the Sources are on Windows on Jazz repository and The actual compilation will be done on SYSTEM i.

Any configuration idea regarding this ?

Thanks
