JMX in Action by Benjamin Sullins and Mark Whipple
JMX in Action covers the Java Management Extensions specification. You will learn how JMX can provide robust management and monitoring capabilities for your Java and non-Java resources (including hardware). Going beyond covering the API, this book delivers real life examples and useful code. In addition to describing the JMX specification in detail, this book shows how to use, and extend the functionality provided by a JMX system. Specifically, the book includes all types of MBeans, working with JMX agents, in depth chapters covering the JMX agent services, and combining JMX with other Java technologies. The book contains chapters on using JMX with Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) and the Java Message Service (JMS). Also included are examples of JMX adapters that you can use in your own applications. In later chapters, the book demonstrates how to extend certain JMX services to provide additional functionality. Finally, the book contains several utility classes that will make JMX application development easier.
