Sun Management Center 4.0 supports the Java Web Start based console. To start the Sun Management Center Java console through Java Web Start, you must install both the server and the console layers. When the setup detects that both the server and console layers are installed, the following tasks are processed:
The client API JAR files in the BASEDIR/SUNWsymon/classes directory are copied and signed in BASEDIR/SUNWsymon/web/console/lib.
The localization messages files in the SUNWsymon/lib/locale directory are combined into a JAR file and signed.
The JAR files in the BASEDIR/SUNWsymon/apps/classes directory are combined into a JAR file and signed.
The BASEDIR/SUNWsymon/web/console/lib directory forms the basis of the Java Web Start configuration for Sun Management Center. A script creates the Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) file at runtime using this directory as the web server's web application directory.
The setup uses the location and organization that you specify during the web console setup to generate the keystore for authenticating the Java Web Store based console certificates.
