The Messenger project can use used to do exactly this with JMS. An XML
configuration file can contain JMS subscriptions which when a JMS messsage
arrives can then fire MessageListeners or dispatch to Servlets or JSP.

Its nothing to do with JMX though - maybe Craig's Modeler project might help
do JMX events & listeners

A file system monitor would be a great idea too - I could use one of those.
Should be fairly easy to add a new Task to a ThreadPool / Scheduler, which
would watch for files that have changed since a certain timestamp.
