Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move or remove org.apache.geode.admin
Date Wed, 03 Apr 2019 00:12:30 GMT
+1 on removing the JMXManager stuff for Geode 2.0 release.

But this "hidden" feature, what is that? Is this something that we would 
like to support or is this something that would be replaced with our 
existing efforts in the ConfigurationService and Metrics area.
