Cisco Catalyst 3750 Stack Question

I am looking at using 3 x Cisco 3570 switches. I will be stacking the switches using the stackwise connections at the back of the switches. I realise that one switch elected as the stack master and the others will be elected members.

One thing that I am unsure of is whether the stackwise connections are used to pass user traffic between the switches as well as stack communications???

Will I still have to implement and configure normal trunk links and uplinks etc between the switches to pass user traffic between the switches.

Cheers.

no you will not have to create links between the switches.  that is the purpose of stackwise.  All switches in a stack will be considered as ONE whole switch.

So the stack connection is like having a backplane in the 6500 series?
