SMC Software Development Kit
In addition to providing a consistent, easy-to-use interface, Sun provides an SMC software development kit (SDK) to enable independent software vendors (ISVs) to develop interfaces that integrate with the Solaris Management Console.
The SMC development environment uses Java and Java-related technologies. The SDK includes an application GUI toolkit that enables ISVs to match the look and feel of existing SMC tools. A consistent interface enables system administrators to quickly become proficient at managing a new application. The SDK also includes a set of communication service routines that enable the application to be managed from any remote instance of SMC.
Starting with the Solaris 8 1/01 release, the SMC SDK is available in the SUNWmcdev package in the /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_8/Product directory on the Solaris 8 Software 2 of 2 CD.
