First I must apologise.
I mentioned on the JMX1.1 bug that list adaptor was being
replaced with connector. If you actually look on the
list is the other way around. Doh! Hope this isn't
too much of a change.
Seems to work pretty well at first glance. I noticed a
couple of minor problems, but then you've fixed some
problems Sun's version had.
Do you want me to post the buglets on your sourceforge
How come no source on sourceforge? ;-)
Sure...post what you find. I will load source soon. I need to clean up my directory structure, and clean the code a little. I just wanted to get something out to see if people would actually be interested in using it.
neither connector or adaptor has been replaced by anything yet. however, connector will most likely be renamed to avoid confusion with JCA terminology.
I've been working with Jim Birchfield on JMXView, which uses http://sf.net/projects/tapestry as the presentation layer.
He's gotten swamped, and I have a bit more free time to play with this.
I put together a mockup of what the JMX console could look like (it is attached).
In fact, this is just a starting point; I really want to go far, far beyond what is possible with the default HTML adaptor/connector.
For example, it would be nice to have a "favorites" list quickly accessible. It would be nice to be able to hide attributes and operations that are not interesting. It would be nice if this data persisted between sessions (either as cookies or in some form of server-side data store).
I understand there also some effort to define an XML description of how to view and update attributes ... I've been having trouble finding the source info on that.
Just bought the JMX and JBoss books, we'll see where we are with this stuff soon.
Here's that attachment.
