I am confused as to what exactly is required in order to be able to view and monitor your beans through a program such as JConsole. I tried just placing the following in my Tomcat arguement's, and could connect, but no beans were displayed:
I am assuming that your MBean complies the specifications. Check the following- 1. Is the MBean to be monitored is registered with the MBean server? If not create an Agent which will register it with the MBean server (its not a separate server you need to install JDK can be used there). 2. Once registered and the MBean Server is up, you can get the MBean instance from the Server and invoke the various management APIs you have written in your MBean.
