Examples

Example 1

This example sets the description for the entity Package:SVU.

Example 2

This example sets the properties for Package:SVU from the file SVU.props.

Example 3

You can use the Ant build file to specify multiple properties. For example, this declaration sets the values for the com.sybase.jaguar.description and com.sybase.jaguar.package.roles properties for Package:SVU.

Example 4

This example sets the host, port, and network protocol values for “MyListener”:

Example 5

This jagtool example shows how special characters can be escaped when running commands in DOS or Windows. In this case, the = in the value set must be escaped by quoting:

jagtool set_props WebApplication:onepage com.sybase.jaguar.webapplication.session-config=(session-timeout"="30) 

This syntax is equivalent:

jagtool set_props WebApplication:onepage com.sybase.jaguar.webapplication.session-config="(session-timeout=30)"
