Java web console Vs Web-Based Enterprise Management(WBEM)

Java web console Vs Web-Based Enterprise Management(WBEM)

1. I like to understand the difference in purpose of using java web console and Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM)

2. As per CIS benchmark, both of them has to be disabled when not used for increased security.
Solaris admin(s) - Please let me know if you have disabled these tools on Solaris in your organization - If yes, how do you carry out administration task?

wbem - Web-Based Enterprise Management DESCRIPTION
Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) is a set of management and Internet-related technologies intended to unify the management of enter- prise computing environments. Developed by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), WBEM enables organizations to deliver an inte- grated set of standards-based management tools that support and promote World Wide Web technology. The DMTF has developed a set of stan- dards that make up WBEM. This set of standards includes: o Common Information Model (CIM) - an object-oriented data model that describes the overall management of information in an enterprise network environment. CIM consists of a CIM specification and a CIM schema: CIM Specification Consists of the language and methodology that describes management data. CIM Schema Provides actual model descriptions of systems, applications, large area networks, and devices. The CIM Schema enables applications from different developers on different platforms to describe management data in a stan- dard format. As a result, a variety of management applications can share this information. o CIM Operations Over HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP) 1.1 is a transport mechanism that maps CIM operations to HTTP to allow imple- mentations of CIM to interoperate in an open, standardized manner. CIM Operations Over HTTP 1.1 uses eXtensible Markup Language (XML), which is a markup language that represents management information in textual form. In addition to the XML representation, CIM information is also represented textually by the managed object format (MOF). These MOF representations are typically stored as text files that developers compile into a CIM Object Manager. EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
WBEM Tools and Services Tools and services that enable developers to create and Services management applications and instrumentation that manage heterogeneous com- puter environments include: o Solaris WBEM Services 2.5 o Solaris WBEM Software Development Kit 2.5 Solaris WBEM Services 2.5 These services consist of a set of value-added Services 2.5 components. These services make it easier for developers to create management applications that run in the Solaris operating environment. They also make the Solaris operating environment easier to manage. Solaris WBEM Services 2.5 consists of: o CIM Object Manager, CIM Repository, and MOF Compiler o CIM and Solaris Schema, which is an extension schema of CIM. CIM and Solaris Schema is a collection of CIM classes that describe man- aged elements in the Solaris operating environment. These classes are available from the CIM Object Manager at start up. o Solaris Providers, which are programs that communicate information between the Solaris operating environment and the CIM Object Man- ager (providers get and set "dynamic" information about managed elements, acting as an intermediary between the CIM Object Manager and the managed elements). Solaris software providers have been developed for a variety of areas: users, roles, file systems, and network configuration, for example. A remote provider is also available to distribute agents away from the CIM Object Manager when required. Because of the incremental development capabilities of the WBEM instrumentation framework, developers can progressively and consistently add more providers for additional Solaris software services. o SNMP Adapter for WBEM, which enables Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management applications to access system management information that is provided by Solaris WBEM Services. Used with the Solstice Enterprise Agent (SEA) Master Agent snmpdx(1M), the SNMP Adapter for WBEM maps SNMP requests into equivalent WBEM Common Information Model (CIM) properties or instances. The SNMP Adapter for WBEM also remaps the response from the CIM Object Manager into an SNMP response, which is returned to the manage- ment application. A mapping file contains the corresponding Object Identifier (OID), class name, property name, and Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) type for each object. Developers can create their own mapping files. o SNMP Provider, which enables WBEM services to deliver SNMP information. Solaris WBEM Software Development Kit 2.5 This kit consists of a set of key application Software development tools that make it easier for developers to write management applica- tions that can communicate with any WBEM-enabled management device. The Solaris WBEM Software Development Kit includes examples, documenta- tion, and CIM Workshop, a graphical user interface through which developers can view and create classes and instances, through the remote method invocation (RMI) or the XML/HTTP protocol. Developers can also use this kit to write providers, which are programs that communicate with managed elements to access data. All management applications that developers create with the Solaris WBEM Software Development Kit run on the Java platform. The Solaris 9 WBEM Software Development Kit installs and runs in version 1.4 of the Java environment. Developers can use the kit to write standalone applications or applications that run in conjunction with Solaris WBEM Services. The Solaris WBEM Software Development Kit is described in the Solaris WBEM SDK Development Guide. Javadoc for the WBEM application program- ming interface is located at /usr/sadm/lib/wbem/doc/index.html. Compatibility of Solaris WBEM Services with Existing Protocols Adapters and converters enable Solaris WBEM Services of Solaris to work compatibly with existing protocols by mapping WBEM information to these protocols. One such protocol is Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Legacy management applications can administer WBEM-enabled software in the Solaris operating environment. Developers can write agents or providers that convert information from these protocols to WBEM, and they can write adapters that convert WBEM information into these pro- tocols. ATTRIBUTES
