Legacy Issue Number: 14797
Source: International Business Machines ( Suzette Samoojh)
Description of issue: Page 114 (144 in PDF) states that a "Pool acts as the container for a Process". This is not true. Pools simply reference Processes.
Proposal: Rewording to something like: A Pool may have internal details, in the form of the Process that will be executed. Or a Pool may have no internal details, i.e., it can be a "black box".

A Pool may have internal details, in the form of the Process that will be executed. Or a Pool may have no internal details, i.e., it can be a "black box".
