I've written my first MBean and it's working and doing what I want, but I'd like to make the interface in the JMX Console a little friendlier. I'm trying to work out how to get the Mbean Description to say something other than 'Management Bean', similarly for the Attribute and Operation descriptions. Any clues?
Use model dynamic mbeans or model mbeans instead of standard MBeans.
You can use JBoss's XMBean implementation for Model MBeans.
