An interface based MBean is just a naming convention. There is no tying 
to anything. Indeed there's not even a dependency on JMX never mind any 
other container API. Then the container is totally free to go in

Which is why I think us all developing MBeans to start with is the 
easiest approach. They are very simple. Take a look at some of them in 
CVS (they end with *
