Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Monitoring Plugin to get stats through JMX or MEJB
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2008 21:17:04 GMT
I was recently talking to a user that was really interested in the  
modular framework of the server.  They really liked the idea of  
jettisoning the EJB container and were also really interested in  
monitoring the server.  For those folks I'd suspect that JMX is the  
right answer.  Personally, I'd go with JMX and if someone wants to use  
MEJB they should be able to.
