custom MBeans for instrumentation

I'm just started on WebSphere development after several years on WebLogic. In WebLogic, I implemented several "runtime" MBeans for collection of metrics (request counts, exception counts, timers...) in session beans. Now, I'm trying to do the same for WebSphere in POJO classes.

I've either not found the correct documentation or it's buried. Can any one point me to docs or a tutorial implementing custom MBeans for Websphere. Specifically, we'll be instrumenting POJO classes and I need help with registering the MBeans at startup.

synopsis of our MBean efforts:
We're developing on WebSphere 6 (Java 1.4.2) and using WebSphere Customer Center application on Rational Application Developer. The majority of classes that we want to instrument are POJOs that serve as "service" entry points for WCC. Each service would have it's own MBean registered at startup and would be read using JACL or Jython periodically.
