Hi All,

I need to monitor my tomcat and know its status, i.e if it is running. This would be a Java Application that would ping tomcat.

I know that using a servlet can do the process for me. I would ping the servlet to see if it gives me a response.

Howsoever i dont want to do it that way, I came to know that JMX helps monitor various applications.

Any tips as to how i can achieve know the status of tomcat using JMX .

Thanks in advance

JDK1.5 ships with the jConsole app that can bind to the JVM and monitor all of the app's xbeans.

Give that a shot.

Also the Manager app that ships with Tomcat has a server status page which contains a lot of the JMX information.
