Chapter 2: Sybase Central Overview

EAServer Manager

EAServer Manager runs within Sybase Central. Use EAServer Manager to configure EAServer and to define and deploy software components and packages. EAServer Manager is EAServer’s graphical user interface tool that allows you to easily define the packages, components, and methods that EAServer clients use to run an application.

EAServer Manager also allows you to manage the server and user certificates that are required for SSL-protocol support—see “Certificates folder and the standalone Security Manager”.

Application developers can use EAServer Manager to view the method definitions for any installed component in EAServer Manager. You can view and edit method definitions graphically, or you can directly edit the interface definition language (IDL) datatype and interface definitions with EAServer Manager’s IDL editor.

EAServer Manager also generates stub classes for use in Java and C++ client applications, and ActiveX type libraries for use in ActiveX client applications.

To simplify application deployment, EAServer Manager defines the following basic, middle-tier application units:

The Refresh menu option allows you to refresh components, packages, and servers, which lets you test and debug component implementation changes without restarting the server.

Logging errors

When you run EAServer Manager, logging and error messages are written to the jagmgr.log file, in EAServer’s bin directory.

EAServer Manager enables you to remotely view server log files and to monitor statistics for component execution and network activity. For more information on runtime monitoring, see Chapter 11, “Runtime Monitoring.”
