Class MBeanServerInvocationHandler

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.management.MBeanServerInvocationHandler
All Implemented Interfaces:
InvocationHandler

public class MBeanServerInvocationHandler
extends Object
implements InvocationHandler

InvocationHandler that forwards methods in an MBean's management interface through the MBean server to the MBean.

Given an MBeanServerConnection, the ObjectName of an MBean within that MBean server, and a Java interface Intf that describes the management interface of the MBean using the patterns for a Standard MBean or an MXBean, this class can be used to construct a proxy for the MBean. The proxy implements the interface Intf such that all of its methods are forwarded through the MBean server to the MBean.

If the InvocationHandler is for an MXBean, then the parameters of a method are converted from the type declared in the MXBean interface into the corresponding mapped type, and the return value is converted from the mapped type into the declared type. For example, with the method
public List<String> reverse(List<String> list);
and given that the mapped type for List<String> is String[], a call to proxy.reverse(someList) will convert someList from a List<String> to a String[], call the MBean operation reverse, then convert the returned String[] into a List<String>.

The method Object.toString(), Object.hashCode(), or Object.equals(Object), when invoked on a proxy using this invocation handler, is forwarded to the MBean server as a method on the proxied MBean only if it appears in one of the proxy's interfaces. For a proxy created with JMX.newMBeanProxy or JMX.newMXBeanProxy, this means that the method must appear in the Standard MBean or MXBean interface. Otherwise these methods have the following behavior:

Constructor Detail

MBeanServerInvocationHandler

public MBeanServerInvocationHandler(MBeanServerConnection connection,
                                    ObjectName objectName)

Invocation handler that forwards methods through an MBean server to a Standard MBean. This constructor may be called instead of relying on JMX.newMBeanProxy, for instance if you need to supply a different ClassLoader to Proxy.newProxyInstance.

This constructor is not appropriate for an MXBean. Use MBeanServerInvocationHandler(MBeanServerConnection, ObjectName, boolean) for that. This constructor is equivalent to new MBeanServerInvocationHandler(connection, objectName, false).

Parameters:
connection - the MBean server connection through which all methods of a proxy using this handler will be forwarded.
objectName - the name of the MBean within the MBean server to which methods will be forwarded.

MBeanServerInvocationHandler

public MBeanServerInvocationHandler(MBeanServerConnection connection,
                                    ObjectName objectName,
                                    boolean isMXBean)

Invocation handler that can forward methods through an MBean server to a Standard MBean or MXBean. This constructor may be called instead of relying on JMX.newMXBeanProxy, for instance if you need to supply a different ClassLoader to Proxy.newProxyInstance.

Parameters:
connection - the MBean server connection through which all methods of a proxy using this handler will be forwarded.
objectName - the name of the MBean within the MBean server to which methods will be forwarded.
isMXBean - if true, the proxy is for an MXBean, and appropriate mappings will be applied to method parameters and return values.
Since:
1.6
Method Detail

getMBeanServerConnection

public MBeanServerConnection getMBeanServerConnection()

The MBean server connection through which the methods of a proxy using this handler are forwarded.

Returns:
the MBean server connection.
Since:
1.6

getObjectName

public ObjectName getObjectName()

The name of the MBean within the MBean server to which methods are forwarded.

Returns:
the object name.
Since:
1.6

isMXBean

public boolean isMXBean()

If true, the proxy is for an MXBean, and appropriate mappings are applied to method parameters and return values.

Returns:
whether the proxy is for an MXBean.
Since:
1.6

newProxyInstance

public static <T> T newProxyInstance(MBeanServerConnection connection,
                                     ObjectName objectName,
                                     Class<T> interfaceClass,
                                     boolean notificationBroadcaster)

Return a proxy that implements the given interface by forwarding its methods through the given MBean server to the named MBean. As of 1.6, the methods JMX.newMBeanProxy(MBeanServerConnection, ObjectName, Class) and JMX.newMBeanProxy(MBeanServerConnection, ObjectName, Class, boolean) are preferred to this method.

This method is equivalent to Proxy.newProxyInstance(interfaceClass.getClassLoader(), interfaces, handler). Here handler is the result of new MBeanServerInvocationHandler(connection, objectName), and interfaces is an array that has one element if notificationBroadcaster is false and two if it is true. The first element of interfaces is interfaceClass and the second, if present, is NotificationEmitter.class.

Type Parameters:
T - allows the compiler to know that if the interfaceClass parameter is MyMBean.class, for example, then the return type is MyMBean.
Parameters:
connection - the MBean server to forward to.
objectName - the name of the MBean within connection to forward to.
interfaceClass - the management interface that the MBean exports, which will also be implemented by the returned proxy.
notificationBroadcaster - make the returned proxy implement NotificationEmitter by forwarding its methods via connection. A call to NotificationBroadcaster.addNotificationListener(javax.management.NotificationListener, javax.management.NotificationFilter, java.lang.Object) on the proxy will result in a call to MBeanServerConnection.addNotificationListener(ObjectName, NotificationListener, NotificationFilter, Object), and likewise for the other methods of NotificationBroadcaster and NotificationEmitter.
Returns:
the new proxy instance.

invoke

public Object invoke(Object proxy,
                     Method method,
                     Object[] args)
              throws Throwable
Description copied from interface: InvocationHandler
Processes a method invocation on a proxy instance and returns the result. This method will be invoked on an invocation handler when a method is invoked on a proxy instance that it is associated with.

Specified by:
invoke in interface InvocationHandler
Parameters:
proxy - the proxy instance that the method was invoked on
method - the Method instance corresponding to the interface method invoked on the proxy instance. The declaring class of the Method object will be the interface that the method was declared in, which may be a superinterface of the proxy interface that the proxy class inherits the method through.
args - an array of objects containing the values of the arguments passed in the method invocation on the proxy instance, or null if interface method takes no arguments. Arguments of primitive types are wrapped in instances of the appropriate primitive wrapper class, such as java.lang.Integer or java.lang.Boolean.
Returns:
the value to return from the method invocation on the proxy instance. If the declared return type of the interface method is a primitive type, then the value returned by this method must be an instance of the corresponding primitive wrapper class; otherwise, it must be a type assignable to the declared return type. If the value returned by this method is null and the interface method's return type is primitive, then a NullPointerException will be thrown by the method invocation on the proxy instance. If the value returned by this method is otherwise not compatible with the interface method's declared return type as described above, a ClassCastException will be thrown by the method invocation on the proxy instance.
Throws:
Throwable - the exception to throw from the method invocation on the proxy instance. The exception's type must be assignable either to any of the exception types declared in the throws clause of the interface method or to the unchecked exception types java.lang.RuntimeException or java.lang.Error. If a checked exception is thrown by this method that is not assignable to any of the exception types declared in the throws clause of the interface method, then an UndeclaredThrowableException containing the exception that was thrown by this method will be thrown by the method invocation on the proxy instance.

UndeclaredThrowableException
