Speaking at JavaOne

Posted by emcmanus on February 19, 2008 at 2:29 AM PST

I'll be speaking at again this year. As in the previous two years, I'll be sharing the stage with Jean-François Denise. The main subject will be the contents of the two JMX-related JSRs that are nearing completion: JSR 255, which is defining version 2.0 of the JMX API, and JSR 262, which is defining a Web Services Connector.

Our session is TS-5199. Here's the abstract:

The JavaTM Management Extensions (JMXTM) API, part of the core Java platform since release 5.0, is being updated through two JSRs nearing completion: JSR 255 (JMX API 2.0) and JSR 262 (Web Services Connector). In this session, members of Sun’s JMX API team discuss the state of the art and explain how the new JSRs will improve scalability, ease of use, and interoperation.

Scalability covers larger applications with more managed objects and distributed management across many machines.

Ease of use covers several new annotations to make it easier to define managed objects. Annotations also make it easier to expose descriptions of those objects to management consoles, including internationalized descriptions. A new query language makes it easier to select objects that match certain criteria.

Interoperation covers management of Java technology-based applications by programs not running on the Java platform, such as scripts, or tools using the WS-Management standard. JSR 262 facilitates the integration of Java technology-based applications into heterogeneous management environments.

This session does not assume detailed knowledge of JMX technology.

In all, there are six sessions at the conference that mention "JMX" in the abstract - three Technical Sessions and three BOFs. Our Technical Session looks like the only one where JMX technology is the principal focus, but two-and-a-half of the three BOFs will be about it too. Should be interesting!
