addObservedObject

void addObservedObject(ObjectName object)
                       throws IllegalArgumentException
Adds the specified object in the set of observed MBeans.

Parameters:
object - The object to observe.

Removes the specified object from the set of observed MBeans.

Parameters:
object - The object to remove.

containsObservedObject

boolean containsObservedObject(ObjectName object)
Tests whether the specified object is in the set of observed MBeans.

Parameters:
object - The object to check.
Returns:
true if the specified object is in the set, false otherwise.

getObservedObjects

ObjectName[] getObservedObjects()
Returns an array containing the objects being observed.

Returns:
The objects being observed.

getObservedObject

@Deprecated
ObjectName getObservedObject()
Deprecated. As of JMX 1.2, replaced by getObservedObjects()

Gets the object name of the object being observed.

Returns:
The object being observed.
See Also:
setObservedObject(javax.management.ObjectName)

setObservedObject

@Deprecated
void setObservedObject(ObjectName object)
Deprecated. As of JMX 1.2, replaced by addObservedObject(javax.management.ObjectName)

Sets the object to observe identified by its object name.

Parameters:
object - The object to observe.
See Also:
getObservedObject()

getObservedAttribute

String getObservedAttribute()
Gets the attribute being observed.

Returns:
The attribute being observed.
See Also:
setObservedAttribute(java.lang.String)

setObservedAttribute

void setObservedAttribute(String attribute)
Sets the attribute to observe.

Parameters:
attribute - The attribute to observe.
See Also:
getObservedAttribute()

getGranularityPeriod

long getGranularityPeriod()
Gets the granularity period (in milliseconds).

Returns:
The granularity period.
See Also:
setGranularityPeriod(long)

setGranularityPeriod

void setGranularityPeriod(long period)
                          throws IllegalArgumentException
Sets the granularity period (in milliseconds).

Parameters:
period - The granularity period.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - The granularity period is less than or equal to zero.
See Also:
