JADE on BEA Weblogic Server

In: Java

26 Jun 2003

I’m confused by BEA Weblogic Server’s implementation of JMX. I’ve been trying to figure out how WLS 8.1 allows configuration and addition of new services so that I can run JADE (Java Agent DEvelopment Framework) as a managed service (via JMX).

Basically, it would be a “port” of BlueJADE (which works for JBoss) for WLS. Now if only I could figure out from the BEA documentation how to add a managed service, but the JMX edocs were of no help – lots on how to manage MBeans, nothing on how to actually deploy one for a new service.

It appears that WLS’s and JBoss’s JMX implementations are quite disimilar enough that there isn’t any resemblance in their XML descriptors nor their directory structures – I’m lost on how to proceed. And looking at how JBoss manages all it’s services via JMX, with configuration descriptors (*-service.xml files) clearly visible in the server directory, I can really see how JBoss’s microkernel architecture really pays off in this respect. I didn’t even need documentation to figure out how it works in JBoss!

The best way I know of is using startup classes in Weblogic in order to accomplish this
