You make a good point.  I think the correct decision would be what do  
the users want in terms of it being an integral part of what they do  
they would prefer to not go and install it but have it as part of the  
base install.  I'd be ok with either approach.  Most AppServers that I  
know of do ship their project with some minimal level of monitoring.   
Perhaps that is the JMXViewer.  Although, I'd personally prefer the  
GUI of the console over the viewer but that is personal preferece.
