VariableConfiguration


Use the Jython or Jacl scripting languages to configure servers with wsadmin. The commands and parameters in the VariableConfiguration group can be used to remove variable definitions from the system, to set values for variables, or to query for variable values with a specific scope.

The VariableConfiguration includes the following commands:

 

removeVariable
