I stumbled on to this feature in WLST tonight called easeSyntax. Apparently it’s a hidden feature that one of the WebLogic support engineers blogged about that allows you to simplify the commands in the interactive mode to have fewer parentheses and quotes. For example, see how some of the commands instead of typing “ls()” I can type '”ls” or “cd(“/somepath”)” can become “cd /somepath”. It’s not going to save the world, but it will help cut down on some extra typing.
The example I was researching when stumbling into this was for how to print the runtime status of deployed application named “hello” on the “AdminServer”. See the below output.
