jmx4r 0.0.6 is released

August 1, 2008

jmx4r 0.0.6 has just been released (jmx4r is a JRuby library which makes it super easy to write simple Ruby scripts to manage Java applications using JMX).

This release adds helper methods to make it more natural to work with TabularData attributes and ObjectName properties

Iterate over TabularData attribute

TabularData attributes now behave like regular Ruby Enumerable:

#!/usr/bin/env jruby
require 'rubygems'
require 'jmx4r'

runtime = JMX::MBean.find_by_name "java.lang:type=Runtime"
# runtime.system_properties is a TabularData
runtime.system_properties.each do | sysprop | 
  puts "#{sysprop["key"]} = #{sysprop["value"]}"

ObjectName properties

ObjectName properties can now be accessed using the [] method:

#!/usr/bin/env jruby
require 'rubygems'
require 'jmx4r'
require 'jconsole'

mem_pools = JMX::MBean.find_all_by_name "java.lang:type=MemoryPool,*"
mem_pools.each do |pool|
  # print the 'name' property of the pool's ObjectName
  puts pool.object_name["name"]

As usual, to get this new release, just update the rubygem:

jruby -S gem install jmx4r

and do not hesitate to contribute:
