Each node in the configuration and monitoring object trees is represented as a REST resource that is accessible through an HTTP uniform resource locator (URL). Access to REST resources for GlassFish Server monitoring and configuration data requires a running DAS.
The formats of the URLs to resources that represent nodes in the configuration and monitoring object trees are as follows:
The replaceable items in these URLs are as follows:
The host where the DAS is running.
The HTTP port or HTTPS port for administration.
If the URL to a REST resource for GlassFish Server monitoring or configuration data is opened in a web browser, the browser displays a web page that contains the following information about the resource:
A list of the attributes of the resource and their values. If the resource represents a node in the configuration tree, these attributes are presented in an HTML form that you can use to update the resource. Attributes of a resource for a node in the monitoring tree are read only.
A list of hypertext links to the children of the resource. This list of links enables you to traverse the tree that contains the resource and to discover the all resources in the tree.
The following figure shows the web page for the REST resource for managing a domain.
