Starting with Java 5, it has gotten it easier to incorporate manageability and monitoring into any application running on a standard VM. Developers now have access to a wealth of runtime VM profile information exposed through JMX including memory consumption, garbage collection, and thread activities. JMX also allows developers to incorporate custom runtime control and management information for their own application using managed beans (MBeans).
In the next Tampa Java User Group meeting, speaker Vladimir Vivien will explore how to create highly manageable applications using the Java Management Extension (JMX). The presentation will discuss three areas where you can leverage JMX including monitoring, control, and runtime configuration of your applications. We will explore the how the Spring Framework has simplified development of JMX-based applications by allowing you to expose your POJO's as managed beans. The discussion will also include best practices and available tools to help you create manageable applications.
