From this description it sounds like MBeans will work quite well for you.
well since juha just wrote the book on JMX he is not really impartial to the technology,
that being said, he is right... your stuff would map just fine to MBeans, it would give you finegrained input into the variables etc etc
What book? Is it available somewhere or published?
The book (JMX: Managing J2EE with Java Management Extensions, from Sams) is going through the layout process. You can already place a preorder for it in most major booksites.
Amazon link; http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0672322889/qid=1008096193/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1_1/104-4707425-0484717
The code for JBossMX is in many parts based on the example code discussed and explained in the book.
And it worked very well - I have it running.
Thanks for the guidance.
Please, can you help me to do the MBean for a Serial Conection. Can you give me de guides for doing it in few hours??
Thanks in advance
