Adding a Legacy Application to a Toolbox
A legacy application is an application that is not an SMC tool. A legacy application can be a command, an X application, or a URL. You can use the SMC Editor to add a legacy application.
The icon for a legacy application is not displayed in the Navigation pane hierarchy. The icon for a legacy application is displayed in the View pane when you have selected the application's parent node in the Navigation pane or when you double-click on its parent in the View pane.
When you load a legacy application by double-clicking in the View pane, the legacy application spawns a separate window.
If necessary, start the SMC Editor.
Refer to "Starting the SMC Toolbox Editor" on page 33 for instructions on how to start the SMC Editor.
Open the toolbox to which you want to add the legacy application.
Refer to the first four steps in "Adding a Folder to a Toolbox" on page 37 if you need instructions.
Choose the node in the toolbox where you want to add the legacy application.
You can add a legacy application to the top node of a toolbox or to another folder.
From the Action menu, choose Add Legacy Application.
The first step of the Legacy Application Wizard is displayed, as shown in Figure 35.

If you want, you can move the legacy application up in the hierarchy by selecting the legacy application and, from the Action menu, choosing Move Up.
From the Toolbox menu, choose Save As.
Navigate to the toolbox location in the hierarchy.
Toolboxes are located in the /var/sadm/smc/toolboxes directory.
Click on the toolbox and then click on Save.
The changes to the toolbox are saved and the wizard is closed.
