Introduction and Roadmap

The J2EE Management specification describes a standard data model for monitoring and managing the runtime state of any J2EE Web application server and its resources. It includes standard mappings of the model through a J2EE Management EJB Component (MEJB).

The following sections describe the contents and organization of this guide—Monitoring and Managing with the J2EE Management APIs:


Document Scope and Audience

This document is a resource for software developers who develop management services for J2EE applications and for software vendors who develop JMX-compatible management systems. It also contains information that is useful for business analysts and system architects who are evaluating WebLogic Server or considering the use of JMX for a particular application.

The information in this document is relevant during the design and development phases of a software project. The document does not address production phase administration, monitoring, or performance tuning topics. For links to WebLogic Server documentation and resources for these topics, see Related Documentation.

It is assumed that the reader is familiar with J2EE and general application management concepts. This document emphasizes a hands-on approach to developing a limited but useful set of JMX management services. For information on applying JMX to a broader set of management problems, refer to the JMX specification or other documents listed in Related Documentation.
