Subject Re: Managing (JMX) Configuration/Policy Beans
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2007 09:38:05 GMT
Hi  Dan,

If you want to export an Object instance to JMX , you need to tell the 
JMX Server that the MBean instance which attributes , actions and events 
will be exported to JMX( I call it management information model).
You can use two way to describe the management information meta date, 
the static way and the dynamical way.
The static way is using the *MBean interface to describe  management 
information,  JMX framework can use the reflection to generate this 
The dynamical way is we can use the ModelMBeanInfo to hold the 
management information and set it with the managed object instance, then 
export this instance to JMX.

The management information can be described as xml , annotation or 
interface. Spring provides several MBeanInforAssembler  to help us to 
export Spring Bean as the MBean. Because we want to export CXF rt 
component which may not be the Spring Bean as the MBean, we use the same 
annotations as Spring in CXF management to describe the management 
information model, and we use the instrumentation class as the wrapper 
class to keep the rt code clean. 

Current CXF managed component is only workqueue manager, you can take it 
as example to export the CXF rt component as the JMX MBean.

Here is the original design doc of the CXF management [1], you can take 
a look at it.

If we go this route, do we still need the annotations in cxf-common? The
only references to them that I see are on the work manager. Anyone know
about this code?
