More on IBM BPM Theming via WebDAV
So I posted about BPM 8.0.1 and WebDAV yesterday, and was pleased as punch to find that the WebDAV support in Mac OS X was so smooth.

That worked a treat - for the record, here're the settings that we used ( this was running on the BPM server itself, hence the use of localhost ): -
