Summary

While many applications provide a graphical user interface via Swing or HTML, it’s not always the appropriate interface. System administrators in particular often appreciate a command-line interface, as it is easier to work into a scripting environment or via a remote login (such as SSH). By building an application using the CLI package, system administrators will find your software to be easier to use.
