Article on combining GlassFish AMX and Management Rules

Masoud Kalali's picture

GlassFish doesn't trade enterprise features such as management and monitoring for Open Source. Masoud Kalali's recent article on java.net is a good illustration of this. It shows how the JMX-based administration infrastructure can be accessed to dynamically change the behavior of the HTTP load-balancer.

The article first goes into what JMX and GlassFish AMX's are before introducing GlassFish v2's Management Rules mechanism. The rest is a detailed explanation of how to create and deploy the MBean to manage the weight of the load-balancer algorithm and the corresponding management rule.

Masoud had previously written detailed blog entries about:
- How to Secure GlassFish installation.
- GlassFish version 2 monitoring capabilities
