Amit, this doc has been awesomely helpful to me over the last week or so. I've been steadily upgrading bosh releases. I like them & the deployment manifests a lot more.

Subject: [cf-dev] BOSH Links: Why and How
"BOSH Links" is a feature which simplifies how data is shared between BOSH-deployed jobs that need to collaborate with one another (e.g. a web server and its backing database). Like many BOSH things, the whole "BOSH Links" thing can seem counter-intuitive at first, and it may not be clear why things are the way they are. This note linked below hopes to show some of the powerful benefits of BOSH Links, and provide examples and explanations that make things more intuitive.
Hope folks find it useful!
