I completely understand. Thanks for pointing this out.

No hassle as above, thanks for making this explicit.

The problem with this project is that the entire project brief is a
module for Apache Gora which entirely relies on Amazon DynamoDB for
storage of data. We therefore use the Amazon developer kit within the
code, and no testing can be run unless there is access to a Amazon
cloud instance. In this respect I would say that unfortunately on this
occasions a Linux VM would not suffice.

Let me do more of my homework, get more code written and brief/scope
firmed up and I'll come back to you guys on this one Tony.

Thanks again
