Advantages of JMX Technology:-
The JMX technology provides several advantages are as follows-
1 The JMX technology enables Java applications to be managed
without heavy investment.
A JMX technology-based agent (JMX agent) can run on most Java technology-enabled devices. Consequently, Java applications can become manageable with little impact on their design.
2 The JMX technology provides a standard way to manage Java
applications, systems, and networks.
For example, the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5 Application Server conforms to the JMX architecture and consequently can be managed by using JMX technology.
3 The JMX technology can be used for out-of-the-box management
of the Java VM.
The Java Virtual Machine (Java VM) is highly instrumented using the JMX technology. You can start a JMX agent to access the built-in Java VM instrumentation, and thereby monitor and manage a Java VM remotely.
4 The JMX technology provides a scalable, dynamic management
Every JMX agent service is an independent module that can be plugged into the management agent, depending on the requirements. The JMX specification provides a set of core agent services. Additional services can be developed and dynamically loaded, unloaded, or updated in the management infrastructure.
5 The JMX technology leverages existing standard Java
Whenever needed, the JMX specification references existing Java specifications, for example, the Java Naming and Directory Interfaces API.
6 The JMX technology-based applications (JMX applications) can
be created from a NetBeans IDE module.
You can obtain a module from the NetBeans Update Center (select Tools -> Update Center in the NetBeans interface) that enables you to create JMX applications by using the NetBeans IDE. This reduces the cost of development of JMX applications.
7 The JMX technology integrates with existing management
solutions and emerging technologies.
The JMX APIs are open interfaces that any management system vendor can implement. JMX solutions can use lookup and discovery services and protocols such as Jini network technology and the Service Location Protocol (SLP).
