Then it's too hard. :)

I see the smiley but really that's rubbish. I managed to do it--full support for every feature offered by the APIs too (multiple languages, multiple product libraries, folders, directories and stream files, optional components, dynamic installation, PTF support for objects and stream files, exit program examples, etc.). It's not technically difficult but does require a thorough ferreting through IBM documentation to get the full picture. I did take advantage of IBM contacts to answer some questions I had and to provide a work-around for a defect in the API directory support in VRM420 but other than that it was simply persistence. The issues I had could have been resolved without help from IBM contacts but would have taken more effort.
