Chapter 4: New features in EAServer 5.0
Jaguar Manager has been renamed EAServer Manager, and contains these usability enhancements:
Support for simultaneous connections to multiple servers. You can manage multiple server sessions simultaneously. Each open connection is represented by an icon in the Sybase central tree view. In addition, server-side SSL certificates are now managed from the Certificates folder in the EAServer Manager tree view, rather than using a separate Sybase Central plug-in.
Support for secure connections to the server being managed. You can enable SSL to secure the connection between EAServer Manager and the server.
Online help. The online help for EAServer Manager now includes the EAServer product manuals in addition to the context-sensitive help. To access the help, click Help if enabled in any dialog box, or choose Tools | EAServer Manager Help.
More wizards. Several new wizards are available, as listed under “New wizards”.
Undeployment support. When deleting entities, you can choose whether to delete only the entity properties files (as done in earlier EAServer versions) or to delete all files generated when the entity was deployed. See “Undeployment of packages, Web applications, and applications” for more information.
US Government Section 508 compliance. EAServer Manager and Security Manager comply with the accessibility requirements of Section 508. You can use screen readers and accessibility aids such as:
The JAWS screen reader from Freedom Scientific.
The Java Access Bridge, available from Sun’s Web site. The Java Access Bridge is required to use JAWS with Java user interfaces such as Sybase Central.
Server diagnostics export. You can export a diagnostic log file that describes the server version and environment in detail. To use this feature, highlight the server icon, choose Export Diagnostic Log, and enter a file name.
EAServer Manager includes these new wizards:
Server Configuration and New Server wizards These wizards walk you through the configuration of new or existing servers. To run the New Server wizard, highlight the top-level Servers folder, then choose File | New Server Wizard. To run the Server Configuration wizard, highlight the server icon, then choose File | Server Configuration Wizard.
Performance Tuning wizards These wizards guide you through the tuning of server, component, Web application, servlet/JSP or server settings that affect performance. To run them, highlight the server, component, Web application, or JSP icon, then choose File | Performance Tuning Wizard.
Debug Settings wizards These wizards step through the configuration of settings that enable tracing and debugging of components and servers. To run the wizard on a server, highlight the server icon, then choose File | Server Debug Settings Wizard. To run the wizard on a component, highlight the component icon, then choose File | Component Debug Settings Wizard.
Web Application Security Configuration wizard This wizard walks you through the settings that control the Web application authentication mechanisms, access restrictions, and other security properties. To start the wizard, highlight the Web application’s icon and choose File | Security Configuration Wizard.
CMP Configuration wizard This wizard steps through the configuration of an EJB entity bean component that uses Container Managed Persistence (CMP). To run the wizard, highlight the component icon and choose File | CMP Configuration Wizard.
Cluster Configuration and New Cluster wizards These wizards walk you through the configuration of new or existing clusters. To run the New Cluster Wizard, highlight the top-level Clusters folder, then choose File | New Cluster Wizard. To run the Cluster Configuration wizard, highlight the cluster icon, then choose File | Cluster Configuration Wizard.
J2EE Deployment Repair wizards These wizards help you find and correct common problems in EJB components, J2EE connectors, and Web applications that have been deployed from J2EE archives. For example, EJB components may use security role names that have not been mapped to EAServer role names or JDBC resource references that have not been linked to EAServer connection caches. You can run these wizards on EJB components, packages containing EJB components, Web applications, J2EE connectors, and applications. To run the wizard, highlight the entity’s icon, and choose File | entity Configuration, where entity is Component, Package, or so forth. If this menu item is disabled (dimmed), EAServer has found no problems in the entity configuration.
When deleting a package, Web application, or application, you can choose whether to delete only the entity’s properties file, or to delete all files that have been generated by the deployment of the entity, including component stubs and skeletons and IDL interface and datatype definitions. By default, EAServer Manager performs a full deletion. In earlier EAServer versions, only properties files were deleted. When deleting with jagtool, add the type option to the delete command to specify whether to use full or simple deletion
This feature is useful for deleting entities that have been imported from a J2EE archive file. Full deletion makes removing the entity as easily as the original deployment.
