Agreed. The tutorial is meant to be read from start to finish (though it will help to read
the WTKX Primer first). It shouldn't take too long to get through - it doesn't cover every
feature in minute detail. Rather, it is intended to provide a high-level introduction to the
main features provided by the platform.

the Pivot 1.5 version, which you can build by running the Ant "deploy" target. This will build
the platform JARs as well as two WAR files: pivot-demos.war and pivot-tutorials.war. You can
then deploy these to a local web server. The tutorials explain how to use most Pivot features.
You may also find the source code for the demos useful.
