Does anyone know how to connect to websphere's JMX agent without depending on the IBM's Jars from a java program?
Is there a tool or console to navigate through all the MBeans which are available in websphere, like how we have jmx-console in JBoss?
What's wrong with including the Websphere specific jars? What's in the JMX container are specific to the app server, so while I agree that IBM should have done a better job at getting you access via the serviceurl (I may also be wrong, in that you can do that now), you would have likely needed client jars to use the mbeans regardless.
The IBM jars are different for each version of websphere, So configuring my tool with the server is different for each version. Finding out the service URL for JMX agent of wbesphere is also difficult, somehow I managed to get it and now I can connect to JMX agent.
The second question I have asked is, is there a way to navigate through all the MBeans which are in websphere from a console kind of facility? like how we have JMX-console in JBoss.
