    MBeans Question

    De Pauw Frederic Newbie

      Hello again,

      I'm starting coding in JBMS but i'm very new to J2EE and i've a problem with MBeans:

      I've coded an MBEAN called DestinationManagerMBean and DestinationManager for implementation (names arent good). It works fine and contains a hashmap as attribute that i can manipulate via the jmx console.

      Now i would like that another class get the "live" value of this hashtable, so i need it get the MBean. The code in the method is:

      (class tesDestination)
      (DestinationManagerMBean parent as class field)

      public boolean isChanged(MailAddress address){

      this.parent = (DestinationManagerMBean) JBMailJMXUtil.getMBean(new DestinationManager().getServiceName(),DestinationManagerMBean.class);

      if(parent.changes().containsKey(address.getUser())) return true;
      else return false;

      So what i think i do is getting the DestinationManagerMBean and referencing parent with it, then i invoque the DestinationManager method changes() that return the hashmap.
      Tho i get the following exception:

          This is really not a JBMS problem so much as a JBossMX issue, but I'll cut you some slack. your code is wrong:

          this.parent = (DestinationManagerMBean) JBMailJMXUtil.getMBean(new DestinationManager().getServiceName(),DestinationManagerMBean.class);

          getServiceName is apparently null. This isn't how you should do this anyhow. You should use dependency injection or at least an attribute with the objectname passed in. See $JBMS_HOME/server/default/deploy/mail.ear/mail.sar/META-IFN/jboss-service.xml search on "proxy" for details.
