Hi, I am quite new to JMX. Even this is the first time I am trying to use it in my application. I have a j2ee application deployed in Weblogic 8.1, in which I want to add email notification schedular. I also want that through admin console the server administrator can set a time for email notifications. I have checked that through Timer MBean I can do that. I have found an example through which I can create javax.management.timer.Timer object, register this timer bean with MBeanServer and in handleNotification method of NotificationListener I can implement my own business logic and that is offcourse email notifications. First of all please confirm that am I on the right path? If yes then where should I deploy that application (I personally want to deploy it with my own application, means ear file). If I deploy it with my own ear file: Should I have to create a separate jar file? If yes then what entries should I have to write in my deployment descriptor?
