JMX And A Management Console

When I was working for Vast Solutions in 2001, I built built a management console for JMX servers. It was very handy because Don was building a message-oriented-middleware server and it ran on top of JMX. So we had a server and an administration console that could run against multiple servers. I’ve never tried to reproduce that server as an open source project but I’ve wanted to. Now maybe I don’t need to as the MC4J Management Console is now out.
It has the graphing ability that we had intended to add but never did. It doesn’t seem to have the cool remote logging capability that we added though. Maybe somebody could merge in the code from Lumbermill. Now that would be really cool.
Then maybe they can add in the IBM Bean Scripting Framework and you’ll have a scriptable management console.
