Java Dynamic Management Kit 5.1 Tutorial

9.4 Remote Notifications and Heartbeat Mechanism

In previous versions of Java DMK, notification forwarding over remote connectors and the heartbeat mechanism to monitor the health of the connections were performed by custom implementations written specifically for Java DMK. These mechanisms have now been standardized by the implementation of JMX Remote API in Java DMK 5.1, and consequently are integrated into the RMI and JMXMP connectors described in the preceding sections of this chapter.
