I agree that MC4J does look nice. It is nice
to be able to navigate the MBeans with a tree.
However, I would suggest MC4J is not ready to be a replacement for JBoss' jmx-console.
I found the following issues with MC4J:
- The operations on the property page for each MBean
are all grayed out.
- The operation wizard (gotten by double-clicking an
op in the file explorer) does not seem to know the number of parms an op needs. Mine needed six, but the wiz only prompted for one.
- Exceptions from mbean operations are not reported (at least, not where I could see.)
- The documentation is limited to a brief readme.
I would be interested in hearing from others if they had the same or different experiences.
Hi Tom Laresch,
I agree with you on the documentation which is limited to a brief readme.
BTW, how is Cranbury?.
