The Rhino remote library is a collection of utility classes to help write remote management clients for Rhino. This library does not implement any proprietary interface to Rhino — it makes using the standard JMX interfaces easier. Rhino implements the JMX Remote API (as per jsr 160) using the Rhino JMX Remote Adaptor. A JMX client can also be written to connect to Rhino using the JMX Remote API directly, without using the Rhino remote library.
When would I use Rhino remote library ?
The most common reason to used the Rhino remote library is to implement a service-specific operations-administration-and-maintenance (OA&M) interface. For example:
a web interface to provision profiles interactively
a graphical application to monitor statistics in real time
a command-line tool to refresh a profile data cache from a master database
a daemon process to listen for alarm notifications and forward them to a third-party O&M platform.
How would I use Rhino remote library?
The basic steps to using the Rhino remote library are:
Create a connection using
Create a proxy object for the MBean you want to invoke operations on.
Invoke the MBean operation by invoking the method on the proxy object.
For example, to stop the SLEE:
MBeanServerConnection connection = RhinoConnectionFactory.connect(properties); SleeManagementMBean sleeMBean = SleeManagement.getSleeManagementMBean(connection); sleeMBean.stop();
