services and some status.

I read the sections on JMX, but I do not have a clue on the operations.

programmatically. I know that I could send http packets in a stream to
the web server, but I feel that web sites are for user interaction. I
would like to have some type of API.

Thank you in advance for any advice and guidance. FWIW: I am a fairly
new JAVA developer, and I am even more of a novice with web services and
