                           ObjectName name)
                           throws ReflectionException,
                                  InstanceAlreadyExistsException,

                                  IOException

Instantiates and registers an MBean in the MBean server. The MBean server will use its Default Loader Repository to load the class of the MBean. An object name is associated to the MBean. If the object name given is null, the MBean must provide its own name by implementing the MBeanRegistration interface and returning the name from the preRegister method.

This method is equivalent to createMBean(className, name, (Object[]) null, (String[]) null).

Parameters:
className - The class name of the MBean to be instantiated.
name - The object name of the MBean. May be null.
Returns:
An ObjectInstance, containing the ObjectName and the Java class name of the newly instantiated MBean. If the contained ObjectName is n, the contained Java class name is getMBeanInfo(n).getClassName().
Throws:
ReflectionException - Wraps a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException or a java.lang.Exception that occurred when trying to invoke the MBean's constructor.
InstanceAlreadyExistsException - The MBean is already under the control of the MBean server.
MBeanRegistrationException - The preRegister (MBeanRegistration interface) method of the MBean has thrown an exception. The MBean will not be registered.
MBeanException - The constructor of the MBean has thrown an exception
NotCompliantMBeanException - This class is not a JMX compliant MBean
RuntimeOperationsException - Wraps a java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The className passed in parameter is null, the ObjectName passed in parameter contains a pattern or no ObjectName is specified for the MBean.
IOException - A communication problem occurred when talking to the MBean server.

When the object name is null or no domain and key properties are specified, all objects are to be selected (and filtered if a query is specified). It returns the set of ObjectInstance objects (containing the ObjectName and the Java Class name) for the selected MBeans.

Parameters:

                                    IOException

Adds a listener to a registered MBean.

A notification emitted by an MBean will be forwarded by the MBeanServer to the listener. If the source of the notification is a reference to an MBean object, the MBean server will replace it by that MBean's ObjectName. Otherwise the source is unchanged.

The listener object that receives notifications is the one that is registered with the given name at the time this method is called. Even if it is subsequently unregistered, it will continue to receive notifications.

Parameters:
name - The name of the MBean on which the listener should be added.
listener - The object name of the listener which will handle the notifications emitted by the registered MBean.
filter - The filter object. If filter is null, no filtering will be performed before handling notifications.
handback - The context to be sent to the listener when a notification is emitted.
Throws:
InstanceNotFoundException - The MBean name of the notification listener or of the notification broadcaster does not match any of the registered MBeans.
RuntimeOperationsException - Wraps an IllegalArgumentException. The MBean named by listener exists but does not implement the NotificationListener interface.
IOException - A communication problem occurred when talking to the MBean server.

listener - The object name of the listener to be removed.
Throws:
InstanceNotFoundException - The MBean name provided does not match any of the registered MBeans.
ListenerNotFoundException - The listener is not registered in the MBean.

Removes a listener from a registered MBean.

The MBean must have a listener that exactly matches the given listener, filter, and handback parameters. If there is more than one such listener, only one is removed.

The filter and handback parameters may be null if and only if they are null in a listener to be removed.

Parameters:
name - The name of the MBean on which the listener should be removed.
listener - The object name of the listener to be removed.
filter - The filter that was specified when the listener was added.
handback - The handback that was specified when the listener was added.
Throws:
InstanceNotFoundException - The MBean name provided does not match any of the registered MBeans.
ListenerNotFoundException - The listener is not registered in the MBean, or it is not registered with the given filter and handback.
IOException - A communication problem occurred when talking to the MBean server.

This method discovers the attributes and operations that an MBean exposes for management.

Parameters:
name - The name of the MBean to analyze
Returns:
An instance of MBeanInfo allowing the retrieval of all attributes and operations of this MBean.
Throws:
IntrospectionException - An exception occurred during introspection.
InstanceNotFoundException - The MBean specified was not found.
ReflectionException - An exception occurred when trying to invoke the getMBeanInfo of a Dynamic MBean.

isInstanceOf

boolean isInstanceOf(ObjectName name,
                     String className)
                     throws InstanceNotFoundException,
                            IOException

Returns true if the MBean specified is an instance of the specified class, false otherwise.

If name does not name an MBean, this method throws InstanceNotFoundException.

Otherwise, let
X be the MBean named by name,
L be the ClassLoader of X,
N be the class name in X's MBeanInfo.

If N equals className, the result is true.

Otherwise, if L successfully loads className and X is an instance of this class, the result is true.

Otherwise, if L successfully loads both N and className, and the second class is assignable from the first, the result is true.

Otherwise, the result is false.

Parameters:
name - The ObjectName of the MBean.
className - The name of the class.
Returns:
true if the MBean specified is an instance of the specified class according to the rules above, false otherwise.
Throws:
InstanceNotFoundException - The MBean specified is not registered in the MBean server.
IOException - A communication problem occurred when talking to the MBean server.
