Use the wsadmin scripting objects

The wsadmin tool utilizes a set of management objects which allow you to execute commands and command parameters to configure your environment. Use the AdminConfig, AdminControl, AdminApp, AdminTask, and Help objects to perform administrative tasks.


About this task

Each of the management objects have commands that use to perform administrative tasks. To use the scripting objects, specify the scripting object, a command, and command parameters. In the following example, AdminConfig is the scripting object, attributes is the command, and ApplicationServer is the command parameter.

Using Jython

print AdminConfig.attributes('ApplicationServer')

Using Jacl

$AdminConfig attributes ApplicationServer

Administrative functions within the application server are divided into two categories: functions that work with the configuration of application server installations, and functions that work with the currently running objects on application server installations. Scripts work with both categories of objects. For example, an application server is divided into two distinct entities. One entity represents the configuration of the server that resides persistently in a repository on permanent storage.
