I am trying to register a listener on a remote instance of JBoss.
I've looked in the FAQ, and found this article:
Is there really nothing simpler than this?
I don't want to do all this stuff which uses JBoss-specific classes; I have to develop software which will run across many different app servers.
I'm currently using JBoss version 4.0.2, but would be ready to upgrade to 4.0.5.
What I'd _like_ to write is something like this, but I can't find any details about how to assemble a correct URL:
JMXServiceURL url = new JMXServiceURL("service:jmx:[SOMETHING]");
JMXConnector jmxc = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(url, null);
MBeanServerConnection mbsc = jmxc.getMBeanServerConnection();
mbsc.addNotificationListener(otherMBeanName, listener, null, null);
Not really possible, until we fully implement JSR-160.
There is a JIRA issue for this in the JBossRemoting project and you can vote for it.
