Item description for JMX in Action by Ben G. Sullins & Mark B. Whipple...

Covering the Java Management Extensions specification, this guide teaches programmers how JMX can provide robust management and monitoring capabilities for Java and non-Java resources including hardware. Going beyond covering the API, real-life examples and useful code are demonstrated in detail. In addition to describing the JMX specification, it provides techniques for using and extending the functionality provided by a JMX system. More specifically, included are all types of Mbeans, resources for working with JMX agents, in-depth chapters covering the JMX agent services, and ways to combine JMX with other Java technologies. Also included are chapters on using JMX with Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) and the Java Message Service (JMS) and examples of JMX adapters that can be used in applications such as TCP adapters and JINI adapters. In addition, the book contains several utility classes that will make JMX application development easier and techniques for extending certain JMX services to provide additional functionality.

Reviews - What do customers think about JMX in Action?

JMX is a dead end  Jun 20, 2006
With the benefit of hindsight, the book's topic has been rapidly eclipsed by Service Oriented Architecture. It turns out that JMX simply was too awkward to implement. Hence, you are warned. While the book is well written, it does not indicate that you will be trapped in a dead end if you take up JMX.

Try instead looking up books on SOA. While that is not guaranteed to be more successful, it currently attracts much attention.
 
Good on tech, not much expository information  Apr 27, 2004
In classic Manning fashion this book is concise and focused, uses graphics sparingly and effectively, and does a great job with code annotation. The problem comes with exposition. What I wanted was a book that not only explained what JMX was, but why I would want to use it. I found that this book had a ton of technical detail, on what is undoubtedly a complex topic, but lacked much in terms of context. More how, less why.

That being said, I understand that most readers are looking for the technical side of the argument and the book has that in spades. Particularly nice chapters are chapter one, which does provide a little context for the use of JMX, and provides a very nice, though brief, overview of the JMX architecture. Chapter six, on agent notification is also excellent.

Frankly, I would love to see a second version of this book with more emphasis on use cases. For example, chapter 7, on dynamic MBean creation, would do well to cover why you would want to use Model MBeans, and not just assume the reader understands the solution out of context with the need.

If you are on a project using JMX or an architect who is already looking at JMX, this book is worth the look. If you are looking for a gentle introduction to the topic, keep looking.

 
Excellent Book on JMX  Jun 4, 2003
This is an excellent book on JMX. It takes us step by step thro
the process of knowing and using Sun's Reference Implementation.
It covers both the HTML Adaptor and RMI Connector approaches
thoroughly. Code examples provided in the book are well
explained. A must have for any one seriously considering a
foothold in JMX. I have enjoyed reading the book and putting it
to practice in my job. If there is
a future version, I would like to see coverage on JBoss's JMX.
Many thanks to the authors.
 
Excellent Book!  Nov 21, 2002
I have found this book extremely helpful to my development efforts. The code examples were key in helping me understand JMX with EJBs and JMS. In my rapid development activities, the good, clear examples and concise points helped me write effecient and better code.

Also, it is stated in a previous review that you need to have the JDMK in order to compile the code . This is not necessary for you to be successful with this book! One does not need the JDMK; the free 'remoting.jar' can be downloaded from the JMX website at java.sun.com. This jar file contains the RMI adapter and is only needed for a small part of the book.

This book is definitely the best source of JMX material that I have encountered.
