We are looking to setup several machines running JBoss. We want to manage these from a central location, but to keep the installs small, there would be no servlet/EJB container. Just the jmx-rmi adaptor locally seems like the answer.
The central locaton(s) can then connect to each instance remotely.
It seems the jmx browser only supports browsing locally - is there a way to browse/manage remote instances?
A related issue then is securing the jmx-rmi adaptor - does it support this currently? My thoughts would be to do something like this DDJ article:
Thanks for any thoughts.
The jmx invoker-adapter uses the JRMP
invoker and a smart client container.
This can be configured to use security,
i.e. pass the user/password from the client
and intercept the invocation to authenticate/
authorise the user/password.
I think there is a noddy example in the admin
