Use dumpNameSpace.sh to dump the contents of a name space.

The dumpNameSpace.sh tool cannot dump name spaces local to the server process, such as those with java: and local: URL schemes, which contain references to enterprise beans with local interfaces. For that, use wsadmin.sh.



dumpNameSpace.sh [[-keyword value]...]




-host myhost.amsterdam.setgetweb.com

Host containing the name space you want to dump. Default is localhost.


-port nnn

Bootstrap port. Default is 2809.


-root {cell | server | node | host | legacy | tree | default}

Root context to use as the initial context for the dump. The applicable root options and default root context depend on the type of name server from which the dump is being obtained. This information is provided in the following tables.

cell Start at the cell root context. Default.
server Start at the server root context.
node Start at the node root context. (Synonymous with host.)
legacy Start at the legacy root context.
host Start at the bootstrap host root context. (Synonymous with node.)
tree Start at the tree root context.
default Start at the initial context which JNDI returns by default for that server type. This is the only -root choice that is compatible with with non-WAS name servers.


-url some provider URL

Value for the java.naming.provider.url property used to get the initial JNDI context. This option can be used in place of the -host, -port, and -root options. If the -url option is specified, the -host, -port, and -root options are ignored.


-factory com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory

Initial context factory to be used to get the JNDI initial context. The value defaults to: com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory The default value generally does not need to be changed.


-startAt some/subcontext/in/the/tree

The path from the bootstrap host's root context to the top level context where the dump should begin. The utility recursively dumps subcontexts below this point. It defaults to an empty string, that is, the bootstrap host root context.


-format{jndi | ins}

Option Description
jndi The default. Displays name components as atomic strings.
ins Shows name components parsed per INS rules (id.kind).


-report {short | long}

Option Description
short The default. Dumps the binding name and bound object type. This output is also provided by JNDI Context.list().
long Dumps the binding name, bound object type, local object type, and string representation of the local object (that is, the IORs, string values, and other values that are printed).

For objects of user-defined classes to display correctly with the long report option, it may be necessary to add their containing directories to the list of directories searched. Set the environment variable WAS_USER_DIRS. The value can include one or more directories, as for example...

WAS_USER_DIRS=/usr/classdir1:/usr/classdir2 export WAS_USER_DIRS

All zip, jar, and class files in the specified directories can then be resolved by the class loader when running dumpNameSpace.


-traceString "some.package.name.to.trace.*=all=enabled"

Represents the trace string with the same format as that generated by the servers. The output is sent to the file, DumpNameSpaceTrace.out.

By default, an "UNAUTHENTICATED" credential is used that is equivalent to the "Everyone" access authorization policy. You can modify this default setting by changing the value for the...

....property to true in...


When you change this property to true, rerun dumpNameSpace.sh, and cancel the login prompt, the authorization fails and the command will not continue outbound.

To access programmatically, use com.ibm.websphere.naming.DumpNameSpace. For example...

   import javax.naming.Context;
   import javax.naming.InitialContext;
   import com.ibm.websphere.naming.DumpNameSpace;
   java.io.PrintStream filePrintStream = ...
   Context ctx = new InitialContext();
   // Starting context for dump
   ctx = (Context) ctx.lookup("cell/nodes/node/servers/server");
   DumpNameSpace dumpUtil =
      new DumpNameSpace(filePrintStream, DumpNameSpace.SHORT);


Sample Output

bash-2.03$ dumpNameSpace.sh -report long | tee /tmp/dumpNameSpace.txt

End of Name Space Dump


Name space dumps of java: and local:


Use wsadmin.sh to dump java: and local: name spaces. Options include...


-startAt some/subcontext/in/the/tree

Recursively dump subcontexts below path indicated. Defaults is an empty string, i.e., the root context.


-report {short | long}

Option Description
short Dump binding name and bound object type. Default.
long Dump the binding name, bound object type, local object type, and string representation of the local object.


-root {tree | host | legacy | cell | node | server | default}

Root context of where the dump should start. Default is cell. This option is only valid for server name space dumps.

Option Start at the...
tree tree root context
host server host root context (node)
legacy legacy root context
cell cell root context. Default option.
node node root context (host)
server server root context. This is -root default.
default initial context which JNDI returns by default for that server type.


-format {jndi | ins}

Specify the format to display name component as atomic strings or parsed according to INS rules (id.kind). This option is only valid for server name space dumps.

Option Description
jndi Display name components as atomic strings. This is -format default.
ins Display name components parsed according to INS rules (id.kind).



Execute the following script commands to select the NameServer instance you want to invoke. For example,

set mbean [$AdminControl completeObjectName WebSphere:*,type=NameServer,cell=cellName,node=nodeName,process=serverName]

You can see a list of all NameServer MBeans current running by issuing the following query...

$AdminControl queryNames {*:*,type=NameServer}

To Invoke the NameServer MBean for java: name space...

$AdminControl invoke $mbean dumpJavaNameSpace {{appname}{modName}{compName}{opts}}

To Invoke the NameServer MBean for local: name space...

$AdminControl invoke $mbean dumpLocalNameSpace {{opts}}

To Invoke the NameServer MBean for the Server name space...

$AdminControl invoke $mbean dumpServerNameSpace {{opts}}


Example: Dump a java: name space

set mbean [$AdminControl completeObjectName WebSphere:*,type=NameServer,cell=cell,node=node,process=server]

$AdminControl invoke $mbean dumpJavaNameSpace { \
    {AcctApp} \
    {AcctApp.war} \
    {Acct Servlet} \
    {-report long} \


Example: Dump a local: name space

set mbean [$AdminControl completeObjectName WebSphere:*type=NameServer,cell=cell,node=node,process=server]

$AdminControl invoke $mbean dumpLocalNameSpace {{-report short}}
