New Web Server GUI

WS61-70Comparison


WS6.1 to WS7.0 Administration GUI Mapping




    Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 has a brand new administration Graphical User Interface (GUI) with a different look and feel from Sun ONE Web Server 6.1 GUI. I've put together this post by comparing Administration tasks in WS6.1 GUI to WS7.0 GUI. It is designed mainly to guide users moving from WS6.1 to SJSWS 7.0 and to help new users familiarise themseleves with the new administration GUI.


Note:
1) All tasks  for Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 are performed after logging into the Administration GUI.
2) Detailed Navigation path given for SJSWS 7.0
3) Configuration actions have to be deployed, for the same changes to be seen on the instance.
