JMX connectors

Use this page to view and change the configuration for JMX connectors, which make connections between server processes. The types of JMX connectors are SOAP, Remote Method Invocation (RMI), JMX Remote API (JSR 160) Remote Method Invocation (JSR160RMI), and Inter-Process Communications (IPC). To view this console page, click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name > Administration > Administration services > JMX Connectors.

JMX connectors communicate with WebSphere Application Server when you invoke a scripting process. There is no default for the type and parameters of a connector.
