Yup.  This is a bit confusing, but all of our AdminBeans actually  
implement DynamicMBean by extending from  I wasn't quite sure how to make  
the inheritance graphs build (and still make it compile for JDK4,  
which is no longer an issue).

If you fire up jconsole and watch, you'll see all the same  
functionalities appear also as JMX beans as in the HTML interface.  I  
just want to have a better admin UI (think Wordpress) than what the  
basic JMX functionality offers.
