Senior Project - JiroScope


Jiro Command Line Interface 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 goal of this project was to develop a command line interface (CLI) console for Jiro, which could constitute the basis for the next generation CLI StorEdge Management Console. The "console" is a Java program with a CLI front end that exposes the management functionality exposed by Jiro-enabled components located in the network. The "console" listens for Jini-Lookup registration events and performs lookups of Jiro deployment stations and/or other Jiro-enabled services. The program presents a system administrator with a "file system metaphor" of the objects that are present under Jiro, allowing the administrator to navigate and browse the services in much the same way as a user navigates a UNIX file system hierarchy. The functional management piece will be invoked and exposed as a Jiro/Jini service.
