=========================== MANNING PRESS RELEASE =========================== Manning Publications announces the release of: JMX in Action By Benjamin G. Sullins and Mark B. Whipple
Greenwich, CT -- October 2002 - With Java Management Extensions (JMX), developers can configure, manage and monitor Java applications at run-time, as well as break applications into components that can be swapped out. JMX provides a window into an application's state and its behavior, and a protocol-independent way of altering both state and behavior. It lets the developer expose portions of an application in just a few lines of code. Written for both new and experienced developers, JMX in Action explains the JMX specification and discusses its use through clean, well-explained examples. It covers the JMX architecture and how to create all types of MBeans. It includes important advanced topics such as extending the JMX classes, combining with other Java technologies, the MBean relation service, dynamic MBean loading, and creating individual protocol adapters. How does Manning's JMX in Action compare to other books on this topic? * With in-depth examples, our book shows how to work with JMX-it does not merely regurgitate Sun's spec. * This book dedicates three entire chapters to the four JMX agent services - not just one like the competition. * No other book teaches how to create your own JMX adapters for Jini and the TCP protocol. * Only this book teaches how to combine JMX with J2EE technologies such as JMS and EJB. About the Authors - Ben Sullins and Mark Whipple are senior Java developer with extensive JMX experience. They have deep, practical experience, both on the server- and client-side.
