I'm using JBoss 3.0.1. I've been reading the "MBean Configuration management" Thread with interest. You are saying that MBeans attribute values are automatically made persistent when the server shuts down.
According to the earlier post in this newsgroup, the MBean attributes values are written somewhere in the jboss-service.xml files.
As a test, I've tried setting the JaasSecurityManager DefaultCacheResolution to a different value, via the jmx-console:
I have the impression that attribute values are not saved, contrary to what others claim. When I cleanly shut down JBoss and started it up again, the value of DefaultCacheResolution was still the original value.
Q: If so, where are the jboss-service.xml files actually written ?
Q: Are attributes also saved when I use a *.sar file ?
MBean persistence hasn't been implemented yet.
