To serve customers who need a standard programmatic means to monitor and access the broker, Message Queue also supports the Java Management Extensions (JMX) architecture, which allows a Java application to manage broker resources programmatically.
Resources include everything that you can manipulate using the Command utility (imqcmd) and the Message Queue Admin Console: the broker, connection services, connections, destinations, durable subscribers, transactions, and so on.
Management includes the ability to dynamically configure and monitor resources, and the ability to obtain notifications about state changes and error conditions.
JMX is the Java standard for building management applications. Message Queue is based on the JMX 1.2 specification, which is part of JDK 1.5.
For information on the broker's JMX infrastructure and how to configure the broker to support JMX client applications,, see Appendix D, JMX Support.
To manage a Message Queue broker using the JMX architecture, see Sun Java System Message Queue 4.3 Developer’s Guide for JMX Clients.
