how to monitor and manage your java application with jmx

I'm going to show, how you can make use of JMX from the viewpoint of a sysadmin.

initial point:

You have a Java-application deployed in an applicationserver like JBoss or Tomcat and you want to monitor the health of this application(including the applicationserver and the Java-virtual-machine it is running in) with a tool like Nagios.

JMX (Java Management Extensions) provides the infrastructure to support monitoring and management of your Java applications. Resources you manage with JMX are called Managed Beans (MBeans). I want to show you how to quickly register your own Service as MBean using Spring and Source-Level Metadata (JDK 5.0+ annotations).
