Running osgi shell commands with asadmin in Glassfish

Posted by bhaktimehta on November 20, 2012 at 12:24 PM PST

For Glassfish 4.0 there is no longer need to open a separate port to access the shell. The OSGi shell commands are integrated with asadmin, so you can now access the OSGi shell
commands via asadmin tool.
