A Service which writes and reads all of the JMX RW
attributes to a single file in the Java Properties Format.
I figured that this would be a good step on the road to an
XML MBean Persistence engine. This service operates
externally to the MBeans it persists. It is not really in
line with the JMX spec, so it doesn't provide MBean
Persistence in the way implied by the spec.
Nonetheless, a "snapshot" of the server can be written
and loaded quite easily.
The details can be found in the documentation located
There are a few little details that should probably be
ironed out, but for those that need MBean persistence
today, this is a viable solution.
The main audience for this tool is the system admin that
does not use or prefer gui / html configuration tools. The
use of the Properties file format is intentional, as it
provides a more compact and readible interface when
compared with the XML format.
I'm not sure about the location of this code in the source
tree, so I just put it in varia for now. I'd appreciate any
ideas on a better place for it.
