How to Manage and Monitor Sun Java System Application Server 8.1
A brand-new article on developers.sun.com, Managing and Monitoring Sun Java System Application Server 8.1, outlines the server's management architecture and describes the tools and APIs that help you perform those two important tasks. The command-line parameters for monitoring, as detailed in Table 1, are impressive and eye-opening.In addition, you can develop clients and specific APIs based on the standards in JSR 77. That's likely a satisfying project.
My appreciation to the two engineer coauthors, Hans Hrasna and Harsha Ashwath, for their detailed reviews and dedication to accuracy and consistency--exemplary in every way.
