Using the JMX Administration API

The broker implements a comprehensive set of Java Management Extensions (JMX) MBeans that represent the broker's manageable resources. Using the JMX API, you can access these MBeans to perform broker configuration and monitoring operations programmatically from within a Java application.

In this way, the MBeans provide a Java application access to data values representing static or dynamic properties of a broker, connection, destination, or other resource. The application can also receive notifications of state changes or other significant events affecting the resource.

JMX-based administration provides dynamic, fine grained, programmatic access to the broker. You can use this kind of administration in a number of ways.

For information on JMX infrastructure and configuring the broker's JMX support, see Appendix D, JMX Support. To manage a Message Queue broker using the JMX architecture, see Oracle GlassFish Server Message Queue 4.5 Developer’s Guide for JMX Clients.
