Invoking an admin command in interactive mode


These steps demonstrate how to invoke an admin command in interactive mode.

To invoke an admin command in batch mode, see Invoking an admin command in batch mode.

 

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

  2. Invoke an admin command in interactive mode by issuing one of the following commands:

    • Use the following command invocation to enter interactive mode without providing another input in the command invocation:

      Jacl...

      $AdminTask commandName {-interactive}

      Jython...

      AdminTask.commandName('[-interactive]')


      Table 1. AdminTask command syntax

      $ Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the admin command to invoke
      -interactive is the interactive option

    • Use the following command invocation to enter interactive mode using an admin command that takes a target object. You do not have to provide a target object to enter interactive mode. Target objects provided in the command invocation will be applied to the command and displayed as the current target object value during interactive prompting.

      Jacl...

      $AdminTask commandName targetObject {-interactive}

      Jython...

      AdminTask.commandName(targetObject, '[-interactive]')


      Table 2. AdminTask commandName command description

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

    • Use the following command invocation to enter interactive mode for an admin command that takes options. You do not have to provide other options to enter interactive mode. Options provided in the command invocation are applied to the command and the option values will be displayed as the current values during interactive prompting.

      Jacl...

      $AdminTask commandName {-interactive commandOptions}

      Jython...

      AdminTask.commandName('[-interactive commandOptions]')


      Table 3. AdminTask -interactive option description

      $ Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the admin command to invoke
      -interactive is the interactive option
      commandOptions is the command option that is available for the associated administrative command. Available command options are different for each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked admin command to obtain more information about which options are available. Arguments and steps that are listed on the online admin command help are specified as command options. 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. For example, using the output of the following online help for the createJ2CConnectionFactory command:

      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

      In this example, five options are available:

      • -connectionFactoryInterface

      • -name

      • -jndiName

      • -description

      • -authDataAlias

      Each option requires a value. Three of the options are required and are denoted with a star (*).

    • Use the following command invocation to enter interactive mode for an admin command that has a target object and options. You do not have to specify a target object to enter interactive mode. The values specified are applied to the command before the command data is displayed. As a result, the values specified will be displayed as the current values during interactive prompting.

      Jacl...

      $AdminTask commandName targetObject {-interactive commandOptions}

      Jython...

      AdminTask.commandName(targetObject, '[-interactive commandOptions]')


      Table 4. AdminTask -interactive targetObject option description

      $ Jacl operator for substituting a variable name with its value
      AdminTask object that supports administrative command management
      commandName is the name of the admin command to invoke
      targetObject is the target object string for the invoked administrative command. The expect target object varies with each admin command. Consult the online help on the invoked admin command to learn more about what to specify as target object.
      -interactive is the interactive option
      commandOptions is the command option that is available for the associated administrative command. Available command options are different for each administrative command. View the online help for the invoked admin command to obtain more information about which options are available.
