The puckit script is not generally used directly by system operators. Rather, it is invoked by mkpuck (which is invoked by one of the Makefiles containing PUCK build targets) to build a JAR (Java Archive) file containing a SIAM instrument service and its associated metadata. The instrument service JAR contains:
The resulting instrument service JAR may stored/loaded from PUCK memory (if its associated instrument is PUCK enabled), or from the host platform (SIAM node).
