Please see the following page describing how to achieve this with jconsole: -
Essentially you need to be using a remoting-jmx service URL for the connection as we now use Remoting for the communication.
Thanks Darran for getting back to me. I had read your article which you linked to and did try the remoting url using the native management port 9999 and that also didnt work for me either.
When I start my server I do see the following log message that might be relevant?
18:55:35,033 INFO [org.jboss.as.server] JBAS015888: Creating http management service using socket-binding (management-http)
Are you aware of anything else I can try?
Are you getting any error with the remoting-jmx URL?
Also have you added the JBoss libraries to the classpath of your client? That is going to be required to find the correct provider - I am just on a machine without AS7 installed but the client jar under the bin folder should contain the sufficient classes.
Darran, thanks again for getting back to me. I was successful eventually, first getting JConsole to work and then moving onto JRockit Mission Control using the JConsole classpath. I did the following:
Copied modules folder across to my local machine from JBOSS_HOME.
Create new Application User using the add_users.sh script
Launched mission control as follows adding the classpath to the -J-Xbootclasspath/a: parameter
Created connection with custom jmx url eg service:jmx:remoting-jmx://HOST:REMOTING_PORT
Thanks for your help on this
