Unpacking the J2EE agent binaries creates a directory named j2ee_agents, within which an agent-specific directory is created. For example, if the J2EE agent being installed is Policy Agent 2.2 for Sun Java System Application Server 8.1, the directory created is named am_as81_agent. For other J2EE agents, the directory name is slightly different, but the naming format is the same. To see the preceding directory name specific to your J2EE agent, see Example 3–5.
This agent-specific directory is the Policy Agent base directory, referred to throughout this guide as the PolicyAgent-base directory. For the full path to the PolicyAgent-base directory, see Example 2–23. For information about choosing a directory in which to unpack the J2EE agent binaries, see To Unpack Non-Package Formatted Deliverables of a J2EE Agent in Policy Agent 2.2.
The directory you choose in which to unpack the J2EE agent binaries is referred to here as Agent-HomeDirectory. The following path is an example of the location for the PolicyAgent-base directory of Policy Agent 2.2 for Sun Java System Application Server 8.1:
For other J2EE agents, the directory names are different, but the naming format is the same. To see the preceding path name specific to your J2EE agent, see Example 3–5. References in this book to the PolicyAgent-base directory are references to the preceding path.
