Performing operations on running objects using the wsadmin tool

 

Procedure

  1. Start wsadmin

  2. Obtain the object name of the running object. For example:

    where:

    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminControl is an object that enables the manipulation of MBeans running in a WAS process
    completeObjectName is an AdminControl command
    name is a fragment of the object name. It is used to find the matching object name. For example: type=Server,name=serv1,*. It can be any valid combination of domain and key properties. For example, type, name, cell, node, process, etc.

  3. Set the s1 variable to the running object, for example:

    • Jacl

      set s1 [$AdminControl completeObjectName type=Server,name=server1,*]
      

    • Jython

      s1 = AdminControl.completeObjectName('type=Server,name=server1,*')
      

    where:

    set is a Jacl command
    s1 is a variable name
    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminControl is an object that enables the manipulation of MBeans running in a WAS process
    completeObjectName is an AdminControl command
    type is the object name property key
    Server is the name of the object
    name is the object name property key
    server1 is the name of the server where the operation is invoked

  4. Invoke the operation. For example:

    • Jacl

      $AdminControl invoke $s1 stop
      

    • Jython

      AdminControl.invoke(s1, 'stop')
      

    where:

    $ is a Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
    AdminControl is an object that enables the manipulation of MBeans running in a WAS process
    invoke is an AdminControl command
    s1 is the ID of the server that is specified in step number 3
    stop is an operation to invoke on the server
