Introduction: Administrative programs

The JMX (JMX) specification allows you to write Java programs to administer WebSphere Application Server.

The product supports a Java programming interface for developing administrative programs. All of the administrative tools supplied with the product are written according to the API, which is based on the industry standard JMX (JMX) specification. We can write a Java program that performs any of the administrative features of the WAS administrative tools. We can also extend the basic WebSphere Application Server administrative system to include our own managed resources.
