Visual Panels debut
By user12619391 on Feb 06, 2006
Long ago, I mentioned I was working on creating Java APIs for SMF. Well, the blogless David Bustos and I have done just that... and a bunch more. Check out the OpenSolaris Visual Panels page to read about our project to simplify end-user configuration on Solaris.
In addition to the aforementioned SMF interfaces, you will find:
A prototype GUI. It ain't pretty, but it demonstrates some of the integration we'd like to achieve.
A basic SMF service MBean. The GUI actually uses JMX instead of direct calls to our APIs as much as possible.
Source for all this, so you can rip out the parts you don't like and replace them. Or finish the parts we didn't. Or just fix our bugs.
Now stop reading this, and go look at some screenshots.
