Pattern matching with wsadmin

Use the Jython or Jacl scripting language to implement pattern matching when installing, updating, or editing an application. Pattern matching simplifies the task of supplying required values for certain complex options by allowing you to pass in asterisk (*) to all of the required values that cannot be edited.

There are two ways to complete this task. This page uses the AdminApp object to install enterprise apps. Alternatively, we can use the scripts in the AdminApplication script library to install, uninstall, and administer the application configurations with many options, including pattern matching.

The scripting library provides a set of procedures to automate the most common administration functions. We can run each script procedure individually, or combine several procedures to quickly develop new scripts.
