Interface ExportMBean

All Superinterfaces:
weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorBean, weblogic.descriptor.SettableBean,

public interface ExportMBean
extends, weblogic.descriptor.DescriptorBean

Provides a set of methods for exporting provider specific data. A provider MBean can optionally extend this MBean. The WebLogic Server Administration Console detects when a provider extends this MBean and automatically provides a GUI for using these methods.

Deprecation of MBeanHome and Type-Safe Interfaces

In addition to being used as a base class that provides functionality to security provider MBeans, JMX applications can use this class directly as a type-safe interface. When used as a type-safe interface, a JMX application imports this class and accesses it through As of 9.0, the MBeanHome interface and all type-safe interfaces for WebLogic Server MBeans are deprecated. Instead, JMX applications that interact with WebLogic Server MBeans should use standard JMX design patterns in which clients use the interface to discover MBeans, attributes, and attribute types at runtime. For more information, see "Developing Manageable Applications with JMX" on

Method Detail


String[] getSupportedExportFormats()
Returns the list of export data formats that this provider supports.


String[] getSupportedExportConstraints()
Returns the list of export constraints that this provider supports.


void exportData(String format,
                String filename,
                Properties constraints)
                throws InvalidParameterException,
Exports provider specific data in a specified format. When errors occur, the MBean throws an ErrorCollectionException containing a list of java.lang.Exceptions, where the text of each exception describes the error.

format - - The format for exporting provider specific data.
filename - - The full path to the filename used to write data.
constraints - - The constraints to be used when exporting data. A null value indicates that all data will be exported.
