Sun Cluster Concepts Guide for Solaris OS

Application Developer View

The Sun Cluster system provides data services for such applications as Oracle, NFS, DNS, SunTM Java System Web Server, Apache Web Server (on SPARC based systems), and Sun Java System Directory Server. Data services are created by configuring off-the-shelf applications to run under control of the Sun Cluster software. The Sun Cluster software provides configuration files and management methods that start, stop, and monitor the applications. If you need to create a new failover or scalable service, you can use the Sun Cluster Application Programming Interface (API) and the Data Service Enabling Technologies API (DSET API) to develop the necessary configuration files and management methods that enable its application to run as a data service on the cluster.
