At first I thought that was the case, so I had a brief look in 5.5.9's script and found this:

# Add on extra jar files to CLASSPATH
if [ -n "$JSSE_HOME" ]; then

... which is used farther down like:

       -Djava.endorsed.dirs="$JAVA_ENDORSED_DIRS" -classpath "$CLASSPATH" \

It must not have the effect on the JVM that I thought it may.
So then to what classpath should I add jmx.jar?
