Invoking an administrative command in batch mode

 

Overview

Perform the following steps to invoke an administrative command in batch mode. To invoke an administrative command in interactive mode, see Invoking an administrative command in interactive mode.

 

Procedure

  1. Invoke the AdminTask object commands interactively, in a script, or use the wsadmin -c command from an operating system command prompt.

  2. Issue one of the following commands:

    • If an administrative command does not have a target object and an argument, use the following command:

      Jacl

      $AdminTask commandName
      

      Jython

      AdminTask.commandName()
      

      where:

      $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask is an object allowing administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the administrative command to invoke

    • If an administrative command includes a target object but does not include any arguments or steps, use the following command:

      Jacl

      $AdminTask commandName targetObject
      

      Jython

      AdminTask.commandName(targetObject)
      

      where:

      $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask is an object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the administrative command to invoke
      targetObject is the target object string for the invoked administrative command. The expect target object varies with each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked administrative command to learn more about what you should specify as the target object.

    • If an administrative command includes an argument or a step but does not include a target object, use the following command:

      Jacl

      $AdminTask commandName options
      

      Jython

      AdminTask.commandName(options)
      

      where:

      $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask is an object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the administrative command to invoke
      options is the option string for the invoked administrative command. Depending on which administrative command you are invoking, the administrative command can have required or optional option values. The options string is different for each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked administrative command to obtain more information about which options are available. Arguments and steps listed on the online administrative command help are specified as options in the option string.

      Each option consists of a dash followed immediately by an option name, and then followed by an option value if the option requires a value. If the invoked administrative command includes target objects, arguments, or steps, then the –interactive option is available to enter interactive mode. For example, using the output of the following online help for the listDataSource command:

      WASX8006I: Detailed help for command: exportServer
      
      Description: export the configuration of a server to a config archive.
      
      Target object: None
      
      Arguments:
      *serverName - the name of a server
      *nodeName - the name of a node. This parameter becomes optional if the specified server name is unique across the cell.
      *archive - the fully qualified file path of a config archive.
      
      Steps:
      None
      
      

      Option names are specified with a dash before the names. Three options are required for this administrative command. The required options are -serverName, -nodename, and -archive. In addition, the -interactive option is available. Options are specified in the option string, which is enclosed by a pair of braces ({}) in Jacl and a pair of brackets ([]) in Jython.

    • If an administrative command includes a target object, and arguments or steps:

      Jacl

      $AdminTask commandName targetObject options
      

      Jython

      AdminTask.commandName(targetObject, options)
      

      where:

      $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask is an object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the administrative command to invoke
      targetObject is the target object string for the invoked administrative command. The expected target object varies with each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked administrative command to obtain information about what to specify as a target object. For example, using the output of the following online help for createJ2CConnectionFactory

      WASX8006I: Detailed help for command: createJ2CConnectionFactory
      
      Description: Create a J2C connection factory
      
      *Target object: The parent J2C resource adapter of the created J2C connection factory.
      
      Arguments:
      *connectionFactoryInterface - A connection factory interface that is defined in the deployment description of the parent J2C resource adapter.
      *name - The name of the J2C connection factory.
      *jndiName - The JNDI name of the created J2C connection factory.
      description - The description for the created J2C connection factory.
      authDataAlias - the authentication data alias of the created J2C connection factory.
      
      Steps:
      None
      
      The target object is a configuration object name of a J2C resource adapter.
      options is the option string for the invoked administrative command. Depending on which administrative command you are invoking, the administrative command can have required or optional option values. The options string is different for each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked administrative command to obtain more information about which options are available. Arguments and steps that are listed on the online administrative command help are specified as options in the option string. Each option consists of a dash followed immediately by an option name, and then followed by an option value if the option requires a value. If the invoked administrative command includes target objects, arguments, or steps, then the –interactive option is available to enter interactive mode. For example, using the output of the following online help for listDataSource

      WASX8006I: Detailed help for command: createJ2CConnectionFactory
      
      Description: Create a J2C connection factory
      
      *Target object: The parent J2C resource adapter of the created J2C connection factory.

      Option names are specified with a dash before the names. The required options for this administrative command include: -connectionFactoryInterface, -name, and -jndiName. The optional options include: -description and -authDataAlias. In addition, one can also use the -interactive option. Options are specified in the option string, which is enclosed by a pair of braces ({}) in Jacl and a pair of brackets ([]) in Jython.
