Java Management Extensions (JMX) is a Java technology that defines standards for implementing management interfaces for Java applications and supplies tools for managing and monitoring applications, system objects, devices, and server-oriented networks. It consists of an architecture, design patterns, application programming interfaces (APIs), and services for application and network management. JMX technology provides lightweight management extensions to Java-based applications. It is native to the Java programming language.
JMX provides state-of-the-art management solutions for Java applications and network services. It also provides Java developers with a way to implement Java code and create smart Java agents.The JMX architecture is classified into three levels:
JMX technology enables the integration of existing management solutions. It can be used to manage and monitor the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). JMX technology is also used in collecting application behavior statistics, changing the configuration of applications, and for error and state change notifications. It allows Java developers to encapsulate resources and expose the resources as objects in a distributed environment.JMX technology offers the following advantages in building a management infrastructure:
