    Calling a MBean from the server side.

    Seb Newbie

      Hi all,

      I would like to know which is the best approach to call a MBean from a component server like an EJB or another MBean. Should I use the RMIAdaptor ? Does the RMIAdaptor have optimizing calls (ref calls) when we are in the same VM ?

      Or is there another road ... I haven't found anything about how MBeans communicate with each others in the source of JBOSS. (Due certainly to the fact that I'm a newbie !)

      Thanks a lot

          This is what we do and it works well for us.

          public static Object getMBean(String name) {
          try {
          ObjectName myBeanContainerName = new ObjectName(name);
          Object myParams[] = { myBeanContainerName };
          String mySig[] = {"javax.management.ObjectName"};

          MBeanServer myServer = (MBeanServer) MBeanServerFactory.findMBeanServer(null).get(0);

          MBeanEntry myContainerEntry = (MBeanEntry)myServer.invoke(new ObjectName("JMImplementation:type=MBeanRegistry"),

          mbean = myContainerEntry.getResourceInstance();

          // Handle XMBeans
          if (mbean instanceof XMBean) {
          XMBean xmBean = (XMBean)mbean;
          mbean = xmBean.getResource();
          return mbean;
          catch(Throwable e) {
          throw new RuntimeException(e);

            Why is all that necessary? If all you want to do is invoke an MBean from within an EJB or another MBean, you can just do a simple lookup on the MBean, right?
