I misunderstood the question: "How can I increase the performance of WAS so an application running thereunder will perform as good or better than its Windoz counterpart?" I took this to mean WAS running on the iSeries as opposed to WAS running on Windows. Since that's not the case, I have no clue what you mean by "Windoz counterpart". Since you're comparing apples to oranges, it's even more difficult to make suggestions. Joe
From: Dave Odom Joe, Not sure how what you offered answered my question. Perhaps I was unclear.
