When running a WAS jython script you get the following error:
WASX7017E: Exception received while running file "f:\script\jython\getCell.py"; exception information: com.ibm.bsf.BSFException: exception from Traceback (innermost last): (no code object) at line 0 File "", line 36 elif value.find( 'WASX7017E' ) > -1 : ^ SyntaxError: inconsistent dedent
In this example screen shot below you can see that the elif statement has been indented by one space too much. It is wise to use a text editor which provides and option to show tabs and space characters, so you can sort out our jython indentation.
Solution: Delete the extra space, and remember that if you want to use tabs it is best to set your editor if it is possible to use spaces for tab characters, this will save you many late nights debugging...

When a WAS cell is created to use the DMGR and NodeAgents for the catalog service, it means that often later in the cycle of the project, the environment may need to be changed to use a cluster with JVMs as the catalog service. The reason for this is that we can stop and start WAS management process i.e. the DMGR and NodeAgents, without stopping the Cluster and thus lends to a better HA design. It is recommended that you really do not use the DMGR and NodeAgents as the catalog service.

I was in a position where I needed to do some Jython scripting to submit a task to an existing scheduler. A scheduler service, a WebSphere programming extension responsible for starting actions at specific times or intervals. Schedulers are persistent and transactional timer services that run Enterprise JavaBean methods or send Java Message Service messages using any J2EE server application. The scheduler service provides the ability to reliably process workloads using parallel processing and schedule resource-intensive tasks to process during low traffic off-hours.
To do this I needed to use JConsole to browse for the Mbean name. I created this script to Launch JConsole so I could browse for the Scheduler MBean name.

Lets say that you have specified some dump agents for your WebSphere JVM and you find that the *.dmp is still appearing in the

When running a jython script using wsadmin.sh/.bat you may want to reference a shared jython library. A shared jython library might contain reusable functions and classes that you want to use time and time again. However often you may wonder where is the best location for a shared lirary.
The simple answer is that you can put the library anywhere in the [sys.path]
If you want to know your current WAS installtion's [sys.path] run these commands in an interactive wsadmin sesssion.
The result in a Windows example would be something as follows:
You see the available path above is either the currrent directory the wsadmin script is running in. Also you may note that you...
