     cimworkshop - start the Sun WBEM CIM WorkShop application


     The cimworkshop command starts  Sun  WBEM  CIM  WorkShop,  a
     graphical user interface that enables you to create, modify,
     and view the classes and instances that describe the managed
     resources on your system.

     Managed resources are described using a standard information
     model  called Common Information Model (CIM). A CIM class is
     a computer representation, or model, of a  type  of  managed
     resource,  such  as  a  printer,  disk  drive, or CPU. A CIM
     instance is a particular managed resource that belongs to  a
     particular class. Instances contain actual data. Objects can
     be shared by any WBEM-enabled system,  device,  or  applica-
     tion.  CIM  objects  are grouped into meaningful collections
     called schema.   One  or  more  schemas  can  be  stored  in
     directory-like structures called namespaces.

     The CIM WorkShop application displays a  Login  dialog  box.
     Context  help  is  displayed  on  the  left  side of the CIM
     WorkShop dialog boxes. When you click on a field,  the  help
     content changes to describe the selected field.

     By default, CIM WorkShop uses the RMI protocol to connect to
     the  CIM  Object  Manager  on the local host, in the default
     namespace, rootManager using the standard XML/HTTP  protocol
     from the Desktop Management Task Force. When a connection is
     established, all classes contained in the default  namespace
     are displayed in the left side of the CIM WorkShop window.

     The name of the current namespace is listed in the tool bar.
     All programming operations are performed within a namespace.
     Four namespaces are created in a root namespace during  ins-

     cimv2           Contains  the  default  CIM   classes   that
                     represent managed resources on your system.

     security        Contains the security classes  used  by  the
                     CIM   Object  Manager  to  represent  access
                     rights for users and namespaces.

     system          Contains properties for configuring the  CIM
                     Object Manager.

     snmp            Contains  pre-defined  SNMP-related  classes
                     and all SNMP MOF files that are compiled.

     The cimworkshop application allows you to perform  the  fol-
     lowing tasks:

     Create, view, and change namespaces.

         Use the CIM WorkShop application to view all namespaces.
         A namespace is a directory-like structure that can store
         CIM classes and instances.

     Create, delete, and view CIM classes.

         You cannot modify the unique attributes of  the  classes
         that  make up the CIM and Solaris Schema. You can create
         a new instance or subclass of the class and  modify  the
         desired attributes in that instance or subclass.

     Create, modify, delete, and view CIM instances.

         You can add instances to a class and modify  its  inher-
         ited  properties  or create new properties. You can also
         change the property values of a CIM instance.

     Invoke methods.

         You can set input values for a parameter of a method and
         invoke the method.

     When CIM WorkShop connects to the CIM Object  Manager  in  a
     particular namespace, all subsequent operations occur within
     that namespace. When you connect to  a  namespace,  you  can
     access  the classes and instances in that namespace (if they
     exist) and in any namespaces contained in that namespace.

     When you use CIM WorkShop to view CIM data, the WBEM  system
     validates  your  login  information  on the current host. By
     default, a validated WBEM user is granted read access to the
     CIM Schema. The CIM Schema describes managed objects on your
     system in a standard format that  all  WBEM-enabled  systems
     and applications can interpret.

     Read Only       Allows  read-only  access  to   CIM   Schema
                     objects.   Users  with  this  privilege  can
                     retrieve instances and classes,  but  cannot
                     create, delete, or modify CIM objects.

     Read/Write      Allows full read, write, and  delete  access
                     to all CIM classes and instances.

     Write           Allows write and delete, but not read access
                     to all CIM classes and instances.

     None            Allows  no  access  to   CIM   classes   and

     The cimworkshop command is not  a  tool  for  a  distributed
     environment.    Rather,  this  command  is  used  for  local
     administration on  the  machine  on  which  the  CIM  Object
     Manager is running.

     The cimworkshop utility terminates with exit status 0.
