This work gives readers the skills needed to create management and instrumentation applications to control both J2EE and non-J2EE applications. It contains not only the API details, but also practical, hands-on examples that show developers how to create instrumentation layers and management agents for both J2EE and stand alone applications.

Back cover copy
Add management and instrumentation capabilities to your applications using Java Management Extensions The Java Management Extensions (JMX) API allows you to create a standardized management infrastructure for all your IT resources, including consoles for network, application, and remote management. This comprehensive guide shows you how to make the most of JMX, whether you want to use it for a single standalone Java application or a large-scale enterprise system. Complete with four full-fledged case study examples, this book shows you step by step how to master JMX programming, from JMX architecture to creating instrumentation with MBeans. You'll learn how to: Get a handle on system management and the JMX solution Create Standard, Dynamic, Open, and Model MBeans to manage resources Build MBean relations to create associations between managed resources Harness the MBean Server to register, unregister, and query for MBeans Take advantage of dynamic loading, monitoring, timers, and notifications Provide remote access to JMX serv-ices using HTTP, RMI, and SNMP Build JMX applications for monitoring a printer, remotely managing an application server, and monitoring servlets and Message-Driven Beans The companion Web site includes source code examples from the book.
