By default, Apache Karaf can be administered via Java Management Extensions (JMX). However, systems builders often need to tweak the default configurations to get their deployment integrated into their network. In this recipe, we'll show you how to make these changes.
The ingredients of this recipe include the Apache Karaf distribution kit, access to JDK, and a source code editor. The sample configuration for this recipe is available at https://github.com/jgoodyear/ApacheKarafCookbook/tree/master/chapter1/chapter1-recipe5.
Administrators should take care when exposing JMX access to their Karaf instance. Enabling of SSL and use of strong passwords is recommended.
