Abstract

See full text

The system, method, and program of this invention enables a developer to write a platform independent program that can read, create, modify, delete, and enumerate registry type of information regardless of whether or not a targeted operating system supports a registry or registry equivalent functionality. More specifically, as disclosed herein, there is a global registry object for carrying out, i.e., mapping, registry functions or registry equivalent functions across multiple operating systems. In particular, the global registry is used to map registry equivalent functions in an AIX operating system environment. The global registry object enables a specified ODM file of an AIX operating system to resemble a registry. A key and a subkey representative of a Windows registry are stored in the key1 field of a specified ODM file. Likewise, a value representative of the Windows registry is stored in the key2 field of the ODM file. Furthermore, the global registry object enables the reading, writing, enumerating and deleting of information from any one of a plurality of ODM files.
