AppServer administration framework

The management functions for the AppServer are an integrated part of the Unified Broker framework. The following figure shows an overview of this framework as it applies to AppServer administration.
Figure 2. AppServer administration framework
The above figure shows the NameServer and AppServer components running on the same machine. You can also install the NameServer and AppServer on separate machines connected to the same network. In that case, a separate AdminServer and file exist on each machine for access by OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.
For more information on distributed AppServer configurations, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
The core of the Unified Broker framework is the AdminServer process, which resides on each machine where an OpenEdge server product is installed. (In Windows, this is the installed service, AdminService for OpenEdge.) The AdminServer performs the actual configuration and management of these products within the Unified Broker framework.
In addition to the AdminServer process, the AppServer administration framework consists of several supporting components (also see Figure 2):
*AppServer clients
*OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, and management utilities
*AppServer agent
*AppServer agents
*The AppServer and NameServer properties file (
*Text editor and configuration validation utilities
For more information on how AppServer clients, NameServers, AppServer agents, and AppServer agents work together, see the sections on the AppServer in OpenEdge Getting Started: Application and Integration Services. Administration of these components follows the general procedures outlined in this section using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, the file, and the supporting utilities. For an overview of this configuration procedure and detailed information on configuring NameServers, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
