Thanks! I was just taking a look at the polarrose for the JMX bridge
(I used Cacti on one of my FreeBSD servers), and the diverse
implementations of PHP clients I've found around the Thrift interface.

I couldn't agree more, the first step is to figure out the client's
communication layer. Which should be a truly independent communication
layer, in case any changes / protocols emerge in the future.

( I was checking also some the "Web Services Connector for JMX (tm)
Agents" from:

...and just realized former Sun sites have the Oracle logo now! :P  )

This is a great date to start thinking around, from April's 1st to 5th
we have the easter holidays down here, so a lot of free time.

Please tell me if some kind of "formal" application is needed, I will
evaluate the needs, goals, possible solutions (servlet, REST,
whatsoever) and try to deliver a rough (I couldn't stress ROUGH
enough...) roadmap thinking on the final deliverable desired.


Also, just wondering: is the simulator reliable? for monitoring
testing purposes... anyway, I'm just jumping waaaay ahead...
