Project Description

Welcome to the Web Services Connector for JavaTM Management Extensions (JMXTM) Agents Reference Implementation Project.

This project develops and evolves the reference implementation of JSR 262 specification.

The JSR 262 defines a connector for JMX that uses Web Services to make JMX instrumentation available remotely. JMX Connector semantics are preserved when connecting from a JMX Client.

WS-Management standard from the DMTF (specification) is the protocol in use in the connector.

This Connector allows WS-Man native clients to interoperate with JMX Agent. Such clients can be written in Java language or not (C, C#, JavaScript, Perl, ...).
