The Java Management Extensions (JMX) API provides a standard way of adding management capabilities to Java applications. BEA WebLogic 6.1 provides a full implementation of the JMX 1.0 specification, with all of its management features based on the JMX standard. As a result, the management capabilities in WLS are open and extensible, which makes it easy to build specialized management utilities for applications deployed on WLS. In Part 1 of this series (WLDJ, Vol. 1, issue 4), we saw how JMX represents manageable resources as Managed Beans (MBeans), and provides a set of APIs for management applications to access those resources. In this article, we'll look at some of the details of how WebLogic Server 6.1 is instrumented using JMX, and how the JMX services offered by WebLogic can be used to monitor deployed applications. Using WLS JMX, we will gather runtime informat... (more)

Exploring WebLogic JMX: JMX and J2EE Part 1

J2EE is rapidly becoming an established platform for deploying long-running business-critical applications. As the number of J2EE applications grows and their importance increases, a standard way to manage J2EE servers and applications is becoming a key requirement. Java Management Extensions (JMX) provide a pure Java management infrastructure that can be used for all Java-based software. BEA WebLogic's support for JMX comes in not only providing a JMX implementation, but in basing all of its key administration and management features on this standard. The administration and mana...
