You can develop WBEM applications that use CIM Workshop, a GUI-based development tool included with the Solaris WBEM SDK. You use CIM Workshop to do the following:
View, add, delete, and search for classes
View, add, and delete name spaces
Add properties, qualifiers, and methods to new classes
Modify instance values
Subscribe to events
Note - CIM guidelines prevent you from modifying the properties, methods, and qualifiers of CIM schema and Solaris platform schema classes. You also cannot change the values of inherited properties, methods, and qualifiers.
CIM Workshop has context-sensitive online help for every dialog box except for the main window. When you click the interface components, the appropriate help text displays in the Information pane on the left side of the dialog box.
Tip - To close and reopen the Information pane, click the question mark button on the upper left corner of the dialog box.
The default behavior of CIM Workshop is to:
Connect to a CIMOM running on the local host
In the root\cimv2 default name space
Using the Remote Method Invocation (RMI) protocol
You can also point to a remote host that is running the CIM Object Manager.
The CIM Workshop Login dialog box displays.
The CIM Workshop main window displays.
The main window in CIM Workshop is divided into three panes:
Left pane – Displays the class inheritance tree of the current name space.
Right pane – Displays the Properties, Methods, and Events tabs. When you select a class in the left pane, click one of these tabs in the right pane to display more information on the properties, methods, or events of the selected class.
Bottom pane – Displays notification when events occur to which you are subscribed.
