WAP - WSAdmin Automation Platform

  IBM Websphere Application Server includes a scripting solution called "wsadmin". Wsadmin allows an administrator to configure and control a Websphere Application Server and Websphere Network Deployment installation. WAP is a set of utility functions that will sit on the top of Websphere wsadmin to provide an easier interface to manage Websphere Application Server and Network Deployment configuration. WAP is a command interpreter environment that provides functional Application Program Interfaces and allows an individual to write configuration scripts and enter commands, without worrying about complex Websphere wsadmin syntax. WAP tool can be executed in three different modes:

1- Interactive mode: This mode allows a user to enter commands and view the response on a command line prompt.

2- Batch mode: This mode allows a user to supply a set of script commands in a file. WAP executes the file as a program.

3- Command mode: This mode allows the user to enter a single command to be executed.


WAP tool is executed as a client attached to a running Websphere wsadmin process, which is attached to a running Websphere Application Server or Websphere Network Deployment. Each WAP function returns one return code, depending on the success of the execution.
