Thanks Gabriele, it's quite nice!

The code change is pretty small I would even say for simplicity it's better
to just commit that to the core. I'll paste the code below.

In main():


And we have:

    public void startJmxOverHttp()
            MBeanServer mbs = ManagementFactory.getPlatformMBeanServer();
            ObjectName processorName = new

            HttpAdaptor adapter = new HttpAdaptor(9292);
            ObjectName httpName = new ObjectName("system:name=http");
            mbs.registerMBean(adapter, httpName);
            XSLTProcessor processor = new XSLTProcessor();
            mbs.registerMBean(processor, processorName);
        } catch(MalformedObjectNameException ex)
          logger.warn("Could not start JMX over HTTP service, wrong name
specifed in code: {}", ex);
        } catch(InstanceAlreadyExistsException ex)
          logger.warn("Could not start JMX over HTTP service, already
started: {}", ex);
        } catch(IOException ex)
          logger.warn("Could not start JMX over HTTP service: {}", ex);
        } catch(JMException ex)
          logger.warn("Could not start register mbean in JMX: {}", ex);

That's all, now just add mx4j.jar and mx4j-tools.jar to lib and you're done.
See screenshot for what you get from that on a live cassandra node.
I'll try this for my installation but I think it'll be also nice to have
that for everyone, let me know what you think. If you prefer contrib, then
I'm not sure how to do that without having to run two processes.
