This Web Server update release integrates with the Solaris 10 Service Management Facility for the Java platform (SMF). SMF is a new feature of the Solaris Operating System that creates a supported, unified model for services and service management on each Solaris system. It is a mechanism to define, deliver, and manage long-running application services for Solaris. A service is defined by a service manifest, an XML file which describes a service and any instances associated with that service.
For more information about SMF support in Web Server, see the Integrating Service Management Facility for the Java Platform with Web Server in Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Administrator’s Guide.
