GlassFish Server provides help information about the syntax, purpose, and options of the asadmin utility and its subcommands. This help information is written in the style of UNIX platform man pages. This help information is also available in Oracle GlassFish Server 3.0.1 Reference Manual.
If you are displaying help information for a remote subcommand, ensure that the server is running.
Remote subcommands require a running server.
Specify the subcommand of interest as the operand of the help subcommand.
If you run the help subcommand without an operand, help information for the asadmin utility is displayed.
This example displays the help information for the asadmin utility.
This example displays the help information for the create-jdbc-resource subcommand.
asadmin help create-jdbc-resource
To display the available subcommands, use the list-commands(1) subcommand. Local subcommands are displayed before remote subcommands. If the server is not running, only local subcommands are displayed.
