A Basic MBean Example

To better understand how WebLogic uses JMX, it will be helpful to first develop our own simple Standard MBean example and see how it works. The main steps for creating a Standard MBean are as follows:

1.
Write the standard MBean interface.
2.
Write a class that implements the standard MBean interface. (If you want to turn some of your existing classes into MBeans, you would write a Standard MBean interface for the class and then have your class implement it.)
