Unzipping 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 the J2EE agent you are using, see Example 3–1.
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.
The directory you choose in which to unzip the J2EE agent binaries is referred to here as Agent_Home. The following path is an example of the location for the PolicyAgent-base directory for the IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0 agent:
For other J2EE agents, the directory names are different, but the naming format is the same. To see the preceding path name specific to the J2EE agent you are using, see Example 3–1. References in this book to the PolicyAgent-base directory are references to the preceding path.
