The asadmin get, set, and list commands work in tandem to provide a navigation mechanism for the Application Server's abstract hierarchy. There are two hierarchies: configuration and monitoring and these commands operate on both. The list command provides the fully qualified dotted names of the management components that have read-only or modifiable attributes.
The configuration hierarchy provides attributes that can be modified; whereas the attributes of management components from monitoring hierarchy are purely read only. The configuration hierarchy is loosely based on the domain's schema document. Use the list command to reach a particular management component in the desired hierarchy. Then, invoke the get and set commands to get the names and values or set the values of the attributes of the management component. Use the wildcard (*) option to fetch all matches in a given fully qualified dotted name. For examples of using the get, set, and list commands, see the following man pages:
