The Java Management Extensions (JMX) API is a standard API for management and monitoring of resources such as applications, devices, services, and the Java virtual machine. The JMX technology was developed through the Java Community Process.
Typical uses of the JMX technology include:
- Consulting and changing application configuration.
- Accumulating statistics about application behavior and making them available.
- Notifying of state changes and erroneous conditions.
The JMX API includes remote access, so a remote management program can interact with a running application for these purposes.
