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.
The directory you choose in which to unpack the web agent binaries is referred to here as Agent-HomeDirectory. For illustration purposes, the following example uses Policy Agent 3.0 for Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 to demonstrate the path to the PolicyAgent-base. Be aware, that the directory sjsws_agent is only an example. This directory will vary from agent to agent:
References in this book to the PolicyAgent-base directory are references to the preceding path.
