J2SE 1.4.x, 5.0, or later can be configured on the Application Server. An integral feature of J2SE 5.0 platform is the ability to start a JMX agent. This is activated when you explicitly set system properties at the server startup.
Example values include:
name="com.sun.management.jmxremote" value="true" name="com.sun.management.jmxremote.port" value="9999" name="com.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate" value="false" name="com.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl" value="false"
After configuring JMX properties and starting the server, a new jmx-connector server is started within the Application Server Virtual Machine. An undesirable side-effect of this is that the administration functions are affected adversely, and the Application Server administration Console and command—line interface may produce unexpected results. The problem is that there are some conflicts between the built in jmx-connector server and the new jmx-connector server.
