I have read that in Weblogic , WLST and admin console are JMX consoles. I am seeing this jmx console in all the app servers. Could you please let me know what is jmx console in general.
I know that jmx is a feature added in java5.0. But not able to relate that with jmx consoles which comes under app/web server context.
However JMX is an API to configure applications remotely. (through MBeans).
from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/tech/javamanagement-140525.html :
"The JMX technology provides the tools for building distributed, Web-based, modular and dynamic solutions for managing and monitoring devices, applications, and service-driven networks. By design, this standard is suitable for adapting legacy systems, implementing new management and monitoring solutions, and plugging into those of the future. "
Saying that, WLST and Admin Console are tools that use JMX underneath to configure/Manage/Monitor your WebLogic Server.
