> Below are few suggestions to be included in installation steps:
> 1. Tree structure for embedded and distributed mode separately. 
> 2. Difference between embedded and distributed, though we can make it from the names.
But at first sight, I was not able to make any thing out of it. 
> 3. How to build the falcon ? First I see a command "mvn clean install" 
> Again there is one more command with "mvn assembly...." . What's the need for both, I
am not able to make it, since i don't have much background on maven. I just followed the instructions
given there.
> 4. While opening the GUI, it prompts for user name, can there be a text to either leave
it as blank or default user name being displayed in the text box ? Because it accepts any
random text as user name. Now I am not able to give the user name, even after stopping falcon
and starting again, still it uses the same user name. Not sure how it impacts the issue i
> 5. When I built using the maven commands, I see two folders created inside the /target
folder as below, is there any difference or what's the purpose of both the folders.
> falcon-sources-0.6.1
> falcon-0.6.1
> 6. Instruction to be given to add falcon directory to the PATH variable. Which should
be the working directory to run the falcon cli commands ? quite few times, I got 'could not
load main class' error. After couple of trails from various folders, I got it right.
> 7. Details about the three tabs in GUI. But nothing to display in all the three tabs
at the first hit.
> 8. Should the endpoint for execution have https or http ?
> What does rm stands for ? is it resource manager url ? What's the exact value to be provided
for execution endpoint.
