All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, DescriptorRead, ModelMBeanInfo

public class ModelMBeanInfoSupport
extends MBeanInfo
implements ModelMBeanInfo

This class represents the meta data for ModelMBeans. Descriptors have been added on the meta data objects.

Java resources wishing to be manageable instantiate the ModelMBean using the MBeanServer's createMBean method. The resource then sets the ModelMBeanInfo and Descriptors for the ModelMBean instance. The attributes and operations exposed via the ModelMBeanInfo for the ModelMBean are accessible from MBeans, connectors/adaptors like other MBeans. Through the Descriptors, values and methods in the managed application can be defined and mapped to attributes and operations of the ModelMBean. This mapping can be defined during development in a file or dynamically and programmatically at runtime.

Every ModelMBean which is instantiated in the MBeanServer becomes manageable: its attributes and operations become remotely accessible through the connectors/adaptors connected to that MBeanServer. A Java object cannot be registered in the MBeanServer unless it is a JMX compliant MBean. By instantiating a ModelMBean, resources are guaranteed that the MBean is valid. MBeanException and RuntimeOperationsException must be thrown on every public method. This allows for wrapping exceptions from distributed communications (RMI, EJB, etc.)

The serialVersionUID of this class is -1935722590756516193L.

Constructor Detail

ModelMBeanInfoSupport

public ModelMBeanInfoSupport(ModelMBeanInfo mbi)
Constructs a ModelMBeanInfoSupport which is a duplicate of the given ModelMBeanInfo. The returned object is a shallow copy of the given object. Neither the Descriptor nor the contained arrays (ModelMBeanAttributeInfo[] etc) are cloned. This method is chiefly of interest to modify the Descriptor of the returned instance via setDescriptor without affecting the Descriptor of the original object.

Parameters:
mbi - the ModelMBeanInfo instance from which the ModelMBeanInfo being created is initialized.

public ModelMBeanInfoSupport(String className,
                             String description,

                             ModelMBeanConstructorInfo[] constructors,
                             ModelMBeanOperationInfo[] operations,
                             ModelMBeanNotificationInfo[] notifications)
Creates a ModelMBeanInfoSupport with the provided information, but the descriptor is a default. The default descriptor is: name=mbeanName, descriptorType=mbean, displayName=ClassName, persistPolicy=never, log=F, visibility=1

Parameters:
className - classname of the MBean
description - human readable description of the ModelMBean
attributes - array of ModelMBeanAttributeInfo objects which have descriptors
constructors - array of ModelMBeanConstructorInfo objects which have descriptors
operations - array of ModelMBeanOperationInfo objects which have descriptors
notifications - array of ModelMBeanNotificationInfo objects which have descriptors

                             Descriptor mbeandescriptor)
Creates a ModelMBeanInfoSupport with the provided information and the descriptor given in parameter.

Parameters:
className - classname of the MBean
description - human readable description of the ModelMBean
attributes - array of ModelMBeanAttributeInfo objects which have descriptors
constructors - array of ModelMBeanConstructorInfo objects which have descriptor
operations - array of ModelMBeanOperationInfo objects which have descriptor
notifications - array of ModelMBeanNotificationInfo objects which have descriptor
mbeandescriptor - descriptor to be used as the MBeanDescriptor containing MBean wide policy. If the descriptor is null, a default descriptor will be constructed. The default descriptor is: name=className, descriptorType=mbean, displayName=className, persistPolicy=never, log=F, visibility=1. If the descriptor does not contain all these fields, they will be added with these default values.
Throws:
RuntimeOperationsException - Wraps an IllegalArgumentException for invalid descriptor passed in parameter. (see getMBeanDescriptor for the definition of a valid MBean descriptor.)

Since:
1.6

getMBeanDescriptor

public Descriptor getMBeanDescriptor()
                              throws MBeanException
Description copied from interface: ModelMBeanInfo
Returns the ModelMBean's descriptor which contains MBean wide policies. This descriptor contains metadata about the MBean and default policies for persistence and caching.

The fields in the descriptor are defined, but not limited to, the following:

 name           : MBean name  
 descriptorType : must be "mbean"   
 displayName    : name of attribute to be used in displays 
 persistPolicy  : OnUpdate|OnTimer|NoMoreOftenThan|OnUnregister|Always|Never  
 persistLocation : The fully qualified directory name where the MBean should be persisted (if appropriate)
 persistFile    : File name into which the MBean should be persisted
 persistPeriod  : seconds - frequency of persist cycle for OnTime and NoMoreOftenThan PersistPolicy 
 currencyTimeLimit : how long value is valid, <0 never, =0 always, >0 seconds  
 log            : where t: log all notifications f: log no notifications
 logfile        : fully qualified filename to log events to
 visibility     : 1-4 where 1: always visible 4: rarely visible
 export         : name to be used to export/expose this MBean so that it is findable by
                  other JMX Agents.   
 presentationString : xml formatted string to allow presentation of data to be associated with the MBean. 
 

The default descriptor is: name=mbeanName,descriptorType=mbean, displayName=this.getClassName(), persistPolicy=never,log=F,export=F,visibility=1 If the descriptor does not contain all these fields, they will be added with these default values.

Note: because of inconsistencies in previous versions of this specification, it is recommended not to use negative or zero values for currencyTimeLimit. To indicate that a cached value is never valid, omit the currencyTimeLimit field. To indicate that it is always valid, use a very large number for this field.

Specified by:
getMBeanDescriptor in interface ModelMBeanInfo
Returns:
the MBean descriptor.
Throws:
MBeanException - Wraps a distributed communication Exception.

ModelMBeanInfo.setMBeanDescriptor(javax.management.Descriptor)

setMBeanDescriptor

public void setMBeanDescriptor(Descriptor inMBeanDescriptor)
                        throws MBeanException,
                               RuntimeOperationsException
Description copied from interface: ModelMBeanInfo
Sets the ModelMBean's descriptor. This descriptor contains default, MBean wide metadata about the MBean and default policies for persistence and caching. This operation does a complete replacement of the descriptor, no merging is done. If the descriptor to set to is null then the default descriptor will be created. The default descriptor is: name=mbeanName,descriptorType=mbean, displayName=this.getClassName(), persistPolicy=never,log=F,export=F,visibility=1 If the descriptor does not contain all these fields, they will be added with these default values. See getMBeanDescriptor method javadoc for description of valid field names.

Specified by:
setMBeanDescriptor in interface ModelMBeanInfo
Parameters:
inMBeanDescriptor - the descriptor to set.
Throws:
MBeanException - Wraps a distributed communication Exception.
RuntimeOperationsException - Wraps an IllegalArgumentException for invalid descriptor.
