CLM clustering on WebSphere with UrbanCode Deploy

A mild case of paranoia. Or too many episodes of Breaking Bad and Walter White Syndrome. Whatever it is, I feel like Darrell Schrag’s been peering over my shoulder (across all of 9000+ miles) as I’ve been working on this post, tut-tutting at some of the wrong turns I’ve taken.  Though Darrell had no idea I’ve been writing this post, “Getting the Most out of Your UrbanCode Deploy Implementation” might well have been directed at me: this post is a kind of a case in point, at least of his advice on using/creating plug-ins.
