ObjectName, Attribute, and AttributeList classes



Search Tips   |   Advanced Search


WAS scripting commands use the underlying JMX classes, ObjectName, Attribute, and AttributeList, to manipulate object names, attributes and attribute lists respectively.

The WAS ObjectName class uniquely identifies running objects and consists of...

Domain name WebSphere
type Type of object accessible through the MBean, for example, ApplicationServer, and EJBContainer.
name Display name of the particular object, for example, MyServer.
node Name of the node on which the object runs.
process Name of the server process in which the object runs.
mbeanIdentifier Correlate the MBean instance with corresponding configuration data.

When ObjectName classes are represented by strings, they have the following pattern


For example, one can specify...

 WebSphere:name="My Server",type=ApplicationServer,node=n1,*

...to specify an application server named My Server on node n1. (The asterisk (*) is a wildcard character, used so that you do not have to specify the entire set of key properties.) The AdminControl commands that take strings as parameters expect strings that look like this example when specifying running objects (MBeans). You can obtain the object name for a running object with the getObjectName command.

Attributes of these objects consist of a name and a value. You can extract the name and value with the getName and the getValue methods that are available in the javax.management.Attribute class. You can also extract a list of attributes.
