Unpacking the web agent binaries creates a directory named web_agents, within which an agent-specific directory is created. Therefore, this directory name is different for each agent. For example, sjsws_agent is the directory name applicable to Agent for Sun Java System Web Server.

This agent-specific directory is the Policy Agent base directory, referred to throughout this guide as the PolicyAgent-base directory. For the full path to the PolicyAgent-base directory, see Example 3–1, which follows.
