The asadmin utility is a command-line tool for configuring and administering GlassFish Server. Extending the asadmin utility enables you to provide administrative interfaces for an add-on component that are consistent with the interfaces of other GlassFish Server components. A user can run asadmin subcommands either from a command prompt or from a script. For more information about the asadmin utility, see the asadmin(1M) man page.
For more information, see Chapter 4, Extending the asadmin Utility.
