JConsole is a console for IBM Unix Systems Services.
JConsole consists mainly of a Java applet used to pass unix commands to a cgi script running in a HTTP server.
The applet passes the unix command entered into a text area to the cgi script through its standard input and reads and displays
the standard output returned from the script into a scrollable text area.
JConsole has been implemented and tested using Netscape Communicator 4.7, Intenet Explore 5.0, z/OS 1.4 Unix Systems Services and IBM HTTP Server 5.3 .
As it only uses normal AWT component, it should run on any web browser.
Version 2.0 supports Internet Explorer and it has been enhanced to send commands to remote systems using remote execution (rexec).
To install JConsole, it is sufficient to download the tar file and extract it to a directory of your choice.
From the directory where the tar file is, issue the command: |
tar -xzvpf ./JConsole.tar.Z -C /your_directory
