Sun Cluster 3.1 Data Services Developer's Guide

SunPlex Agent Builder

Agent Builder is a tool that automates the creation of a data service. You input basic information about the target application and the data service to be created.Agent Builder generates a data service, complete with source and executable code (C or Korn shell), customized RTR file, and a Solaris package.

For most applications, you can use Agent Builder to generate a complete data service with only minor manual changes on your part. Applications with more sophisticated requirements, such as adding validation checks for additional properties, might require work that Agent Builder cannot do. However, even in these cases you might be able to use Agent Builder to generate the bulk of the code and manually code the rest. At minimum, you can use Agent Builder to generate the Solaris package for you.
