Oh yeah, well I did read ezine and so I can then suggest that you at the WmSamples as pre-made items that you can look at locally. But as I remember in the ezine, it is wise to have a focus on your end of what you want to proof. These are only making sure the technical merits exist in some locations.
So for my opinion, I would maybe suggest you try a JSP example. If you have TN, you can call a service to bring back a list of the Partners and then format it in a select list. This would service well for a self-contained custom solution.
One other thing maybe you, if you use .net, could make a .net front end to an anonymous access back-end WM service. I think some managers like the .net front, so you may sell a particular case better.
I have personally done both for our internal setups. Good day.
