Servlet-Based Jiro Management Console

Senior Project: 2000-2001

Sun Microsystems is a Silicon Valley-based company specializing in server hardware, operating systems, networking technologies, Java, and software development for e-commerce and embedded systems. In the last two years Sun has developed Jiro and Jini technologies, which provide the specifications for building a dynamic network community of services. Jiro delivers technology for the management of storage, servers, applications and devices on networks enabling true integration and platform-independence. Jini allows a network of services to be easily assembled, disassembled and maintained.

The Network Storage Division of Sun is moving to a Jiro-based network for the storage management and administration of their SAN's (Storage Area Network). The idea behind this project was to develop a servlet-based storage management console for a Jiro network.

The "console" is a set of Java servlets, accessible through a web browser, that allow access to management functionality exposed by Jiro-enabled components that are located in the network. The servlets listen for Jini-Lookup registration events and perform lookups of Jiro deployment stations and/or other Jiro-enabled services. The "console" presents a "navigation" frame on which the Jiro-enabled services that have been discovered on the network are represented, as well as a frame in which servlets associated with each service are exposed.
