    JMX & JBoss applicability

    Yuriy ZUbarev Newbie

      Hello everyone,

      I will have to say it right away that I'm not much posted in either JMX or JBoss,
      I would just like to see if this specification is a right way to go
      to solve a particular task and if I have to invest more time
      understanding JBoss.

      In a scope of J2EE application we have to perform some repetitive
      actions like monitoring file system and/or database with certain
      intervals. Neither entity nor session nor message beans are good
      candidates for this job for obvious reasons (but I may be wrong here)
      and EJB 2.1 with Timer Services is not there yet. In this situation
      would JMX Timer Services be a correct fit to schedule and fire up
      those tasks (file system/database querying) given that JMX is implemented
      in some application servers like JBoss for example?

      Thank you for your time,
      Yuriy ZUbarev
