some of the best help files are the .chm (compiled html help) files that accompany the IPs. the release notes are good for cursory information but don't provide a lot of value above that. if you're looking for them, most are under the client location.
|oisip*.chm||<opalis software>\opalis integration server\client||these are the general names of the integration pack help files.|
|database_configuration.chm||<opalis software>\opalis integration server\management service||this is not very useful after the initial configuration of the opalis database|
|oisdeploymentmanager.chm||<opalis software>\opalis integration server\management service\console||help file for deployment manager|
most of your time spent will most likely be in the oisip*.chm files. they contain the help information and samples respective to each integration pack. start automating something.
