These Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Release Notes are available online after an agent or set of agents is released.
The Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 User's Guide is available in two documentation sets: Access Manager documentation and Policy Agent 2.2 documentation set.
The individual agents in the Policy Agent 2.2 software set are available on a different schedule than Access Manager itself. Therefore, documentation for Access Manager and Policy Agent are available in separate sets, except for the Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 User's Guide, which is available in both documentation sets.
The documentation for the individual agents is divided into two subsets: a web agent subset and a J2EE agent subset.
Each web agent guide provides general information about web agents and installation, configuration, and uninstallation information for a specific web agent.
Each J2EE agent guide provides general information about J2EE agents and installation, configuration, and uninstallation information for a specific J2EE agent.
The individual agent guides are listed along with supported server information in the following chapters of the Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 User's Guide:
