Utility scripts


The scripting library provides multiple script procedures to automate the application configurations. This page provides usage information for scripts that set notification options, save configuration changes, and display scripting library information.

Each utility script procedure is located in...

$WAS_HOME/scriptLibraries/utilities/V70

Use the following script procedures to perform utility functions:

 

convertToList

This script converts a string to a list. For example, the AdminApp.list() command returns a string of application names. Use the convertToList script to change the output to a list format, such as ['DefaultApplication', 'a1', 'a2', 'ivtApp', 'query'].

To run the script, run a command that returns a string output and set the output to a variable, as defined in the following table:
Argument Description
variable Name of the variable that contains the string to convert to a list.

Syntax

AdminUtilities.convertToList(variable)

Example usage

apps=AdminApp.list() AdminUtilities.convertToList(apps)

 

debugNotice

This script sets the debug notice text.

To run the script, specify the message argument, as defined in the following table:
Argument Description
message Message text for the debug notice.

Syntax

AdminUtilities.debugNotice(message)

Example usage

AdminUtilities.debugNotice("Server is started")

 

getExceptionText

This script displays the exception message for a specific exception type, exception value, or traceback information.

To run the script, specify the type, value, or traceback arguments, as defined in the following table:
Argument Description
type Exception type of interest. The exception type represents the class object of the exception.
value Exception value of interest. The value represents the instance object that is the argument of the exception or the second argument of the raise statement.
traceback Traceback information of interest. The traceback object contains special attributes, including the line number where the error occurred. Do not assign traceback to a local variable in the function that handles the exception, as this assignment creates a circular reference.

Syntax

AdminUtilities.getExceptionText(type, value, traceback)

Example usage

AdminUtilities.getExceptionText("com.ibm.ws.scripting.ScriptingException
", "com.ibm.ws.scripting.ScriptingException: AdminControl service not available"
, "")
