Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for IBM WebSphere Portal Server

Deploying the Agent Application for J2EE Agents in Policy Agent 2.2

The task described in this section is required. Deploy the URI for the agent application using the deployment container. The agent application is a housekeeping application used by the agent for notifications and other internal functionality. This application is bundled with the agent binaries and can be found at the following location:


where extension refers to the .war extension or the .ear extension. The extension varies depending on the deployment container.

For more information about the Policy Agent base directory (PolicyAgent-base), see J2EE Agent Directory Structure in Policy Agent 2.2.

The agentapp application has to be deployed as a post installation step. In order for the agent to function correctly, this application must be deployed on the agent-protected deployment container instance using the same URI that was supplied during the agent installation process (optionally, you can add a hyper link to and from the relevant prompt). For example during the installation process, if you entered /agentapp as the deployment URI for the agent application, then use that same context path to deploy the .war or .ear file in the deployment container.

Using the administration console or command-line utilities of the deployment container, deploy this application using Application Context Path as the URI specified during agent installation.
