Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 Developer's Guide

Connecting to the Domain Administration Server

As stated in Configuration MBeans, the AMX API allows client applications to connect to Application Server instances via the DAS. All AMX connections are established to the DAS only: AMX does not support direct connections to individual server instances. This makes it simple to interact with all servers, clusters, and so on, with a single connection.

Sample code for connecting to the DAS is shown in Connecting to the DAS.
