    Is an MBean what I want?

    toddrun Newbie

      I want to create a class that reads from an XML file, like a *-service.xml file, and exposes attributes read from the file to other classes.

      For example, I'll have:
      <attribute name="SRPPriority">7</attribute>

      Later I want to read the value of the SRPAdmin attribute from another class. I also want to be able to change the attribute (perhaps through the jmx-console) and have the change reflected.

      I assume I want an MBean to do this? I'm looking for confirmation before I spend a lot of time building something that isn't going to do the job. Am I on the right track or is there an easier way?

      Also, if this is the route to take, will I be able to replace the *-service.xml file during runtime and have the MBean read in the new file? This is not a requirement but would be useful.

      Thanks in advance.
