Solaris WBEM Software Developer's Kit

The Solaris WBEM Software Developer's Kit (SDK) contains the components required to write management applications that can communicate with any WBEM-enabled management device. Developers can also use this SDK to write providers, which are programs that communicate with managed objects to access data. All management applications developed using the Solaris WBEM SDK run in the Java environment.

A WBEM client application is a program that uses Solaris WBEM APIs to manipulate CIM objects. A client application typically uses the CIM API to construct an object (for example, a namespace, class, or instance) and then to initialize that object. The application then uses the client APIs to pass that object to the CIM Object Manager and to request a WBEM operation, such as operations that create a CIM namespace, class, or instance.

The Solaris WBEM SDK installs and runs in the Java environment. You can use the Solaris WBEM SDK as a standalone application or with Solaris WBEM Services.

The Solaris WBEM SDK is described in the Solaris WBEM SDK Developer's Guide.
