This feature is new in the Solaris Express 10/04 release.
The Sun Java Web Console provides a common location for users to access web-based management applications. Users reach the console by logging in through an HTTPS port, using one of several supported web browsers. The single entry point that is provided by the console eliminates the need to learn URLs for multiple applications. This entry point provides authentication and authorization for all applications that are registered with the console.
All console-based applications conform to the same user interface guidelines. This change enhances ease of use by enabling users to transfer their knowledge of one application to another.
The Java Web Console also provides auditing and logging services for all registered applications.
Currently, no system management applications in the Solaris OS use the Java Web Console.
For more information about the Java Web Console, see the System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
