Forgive my terminology but Im new to Enterprise Java. I have been asked to find out about managing and monitoring an Extranet system that is made up of JSP and Servlets that connect to an Oracle 9 DB.
It currently uses a standalone tomcat Server with a WAR file being built and deployed through the tomcat manager.
What I want to know is if we migrate to JBoss can we manage and monitor the performance of the system easily.
For instance would we have to write extra code ? ( I have a feeling that the answer is yes, and it relates to JMX and MBeans but the only information I can find is very low level and / or abstract.
The following is what we wish to achieve :
1. Easy deployment of code conforming to the J2EE reference model.
2. E-mail & some sort of console log notification of events, i.e. application has failed.
3. Automation of restart for / of failed applications.
So can JBoss 4 provide this and how much work do we have do ?
Any pointers to any easy introduction preferably with examples would be most appreciated.
