Java is now used with increasing frequency to develop mission-critical applications. Using Java Management Extensions (JMX) is the key to managing those applications. As JMX is increasingly accepted into the fields of embedded systems, enterprise systems, and telephony, it is clear that all Java developers will encounter JMX before long.
Java™ and JMX: Building Manageable Systems is the definitive guide to JMX, combining an introduction to the technology with extensive coverage that will make this book a favorite reference. Much more than just an explanation of the JMX specifications, this book can drastically reduce a reader's JMX learning curve by explaining how to develop management requirements and apply JMX to them. The book's coverage includes:
A management primer for Java programmers and architects
A historical perspective on the evolution of JMX and its relation to other management standards, including SNMP, CIM/WBEM, TMN, and CMIP
Development of JMX Manageable Resources with Standard and Dynamic MBeans
Development with Model MBeans as customizable generic instrumentation using both the JMX APIs and XML files
MBeanServer, including the MBean registry and object naming scheme, the generic MBean interface, and the query mechanism
JMX Monitors and Notifications
MBeanServer Services including the timer, relationship, and dynamic loading, along with custom services for XML services, HTTP adapters, RMI connectors, and security exposures and permissions
JMX best practices, including deployment patterns, instrumentation patterns, federation patterns, and best practices
JMX integration into J2EE and the JSR077 management models in J2EE 1.4
Using JMX to manage Web services from the perspective of service providers, registry providers, and users
Written with an unparalleled degree of in-the-trenches familiarity and full of practical examples and working sample code, Java™ and JMX is a must-have introduction, technological guide, and reference for Java architects and developers.
