This is the home page for WebJump, a completely web-based
interface to the Solaris JumpStart environment. WebJump is
designed to be an intuitive method for adding and modifying
the machine settings, configurations, and scripts. WebJump
will be capable of custom profiles, patching, specialized
begin and finish scripts, custom package additions, and
various disk setups incuding mirroring. It is written entirely
in Perl and CGI, in a non- object-oriented way (because I suck
at object-oriented programming).
Currently the project is still in the beginning stages, most
of the main screens have been written, but a lot of the basic
functionality still needs to be completed and debugged. Also,
some of the usability needs to be worked on, as I am not the
most skilled web designer. I am a systems administrator by
day, and I started writing this to further expand my skills
in perl and CGI as well as to build a tool I could use every
day. Hopefully this will grow into a tool others can use.
For more information on the status of the project or to
check out a copy of the files, goto the
Sourceforge project page, or check out the
CVS web interface.
Right now there are no mailing lists, but I hope to be setting
them up soon. I'm not too worried about it, as I am currently
the only developer.
