Methods and devices for generating XML expressed management transactions that include an XPATH expression



The present invention relates to a management transaction method and a device thereof represented by an XML including XPath expressions. The new XML management transaction requests including XPath expressions are used for forwarding configuration changes on to a data network device. The generation and use of these new requests helps reduce the costs associated with designing or upgrading data network devices. These new requests may be generated in a novel command line interface that has been augmented to give a user access to more configuration functions. Complex management transactions may be executed substantially simultaneously by a central management module using the new requests and their associated XPath expressions. In addition to configuration changes, the new requests may be used to obtain the current configuration of data network devices.
