I'd just say try to get this working in Geronimo as a GBean serving  
dummy data, and then I'll help you get a hook directly into the  
Geronimo kernel.  From the kernel you can access everything without  
having to code against ugly JMX apis.  Also JMX is an optional add-on  
for Geronimo so it is best not to tie yourself to it.

We could hook this into the yet-to-materialize management console.
