Please highlight 2 issues you bring up:
(1) in Upgrading the Web Agent, step 15.. you suggest using a fake username "Noname" & password. The installation does - as you point out, ask for an eDirectory user. Whatever is placed here, will be preserved in cleartext in the Web Access Agent configuration file. (in my case.. WEBAC80A.waa ) . Not only is your recommendation great, but the GW doc staff should have an old-fashioned ruler across the knuckles for saving real user passwords in cleartext!
Also, you do mention the issues between the newer config of Tomcat and the speller references. I followed your notes, but still had an issue with send/receiving from WebAccess. These two TIDs cleared the issue up for me. www.novell.com/.../doc.php
