Configuration Categories Configuration Actions Managing Containers

Delegate

This feature includes the policy implementation point for third-party web service frameworks, and provides support for WS-Policy and dynamic endpoint resolution. It can only be deployed with a web service framework like Apache Axis. A Delegate Access Point (see the Delegate Access Point feature) is also included for remote delegates.

Delegate Access Point

This feature provides a remote interface to delegates for policy implementation and message delivery. Any delegate that does not provide its own policy implementation and message delivery mechanism can route messages through the Access Point.

Network Director

This feature enables a Container to host Virtual Services. The Virtual Services are defined in the Policy Manager Management Console. When the Network Director feature is enabled, the Container's metadata is updated to reflect this support. The metadata must be updated in the Policy Manager Management Console so that it is aware that Virtual Services can be hosted on the Container. The feature also enables support for default Bindings and Policies. The default Bindings are SOAP and HTTP (REST and POX). The default Policies are WS-Addressing, WS-Auditing, WS-Security, HTTP Security, Authentication, and Authorization.

Tomcat Agent

This feature is the policy enforcement point for the Apache Tomcat application server and provides WS-Policy enforcement for web services deployed to Tomcat. It can only be deployed in a Container deployed in a Tomcat instance and only supports the Apache Axis 1.4 SOAP framework.

Ping Support

This feature includes a simple "ping" web service for testing the functional state of the container's web service framework.

Policy Manager Console

This feature includes a web based user interface for the central Policy Manager governance application. The user interface provides a dashboard and the primary interface for configuration, management and administration of Policy Manager and Service Manager. The console must interact with a Container (may be the same container) configured with the Policy Manager Services to fulfill the core central governance application requirements.

Policy Manager Services

This feature includes services provided by the central Policy Manager governance application. These services include, but are not limited to, UDDIv2 and UDDIv3, WS-MetadataExchange, SOA Container Configuration, an XACML Policy Decision Point, a WS-Trust Security Token Service, Alert reporting, and RESTful interfaces to the governance model. In addition, this feature includes engines for performing Quality of Service calculations and health and status monitoring.

Managed Services

Installs the Policy Manager system services. This feature is used for multi-container deployments and is also installed as part of the Policy Manager Services feature (for single container deployments) along with Security Services, and Scheduled Jobs features.

Scheduled Jobs

Installs a series of system background jobs that are executed by the Policy Manager job scheduler. This feature is used for multi-container deployments and is also installed as part of the Policy Manager Services feature (for single container deployments) along with Managed Services, and Security Services features.

Security Services

Installs Policy Manager security-related services. This feature is used for multi-container deployments and is also installed as part of the Policy Manager Services feature (for single container deployments) along with Scheduled Jobs, and Managed Services features.
