AdventNet ManageEngine Enhances Rapid Application Manageability With JMX Certification and Advanced Innovation

Pleasanton, California, June 25 2002

AdventNet Inc., a pioneer in rapid automated management of applications, announced the JMX (Java Management Extensions) certification of AdventNet ManageEngine - a mature, stable product available for more than two years with wide deployment. It is a testimony to AdventNet's expertise and innovation, being the first independent JMX implementation certified for compliance. AdventNet ManageEngine and the underlying technology, AdventNet Agent Toolkit Java/JMX Edition are both certified JMX compliant.

Christophe Ebro, JMX Specification and Maintenance Lead at Sun Microsystems said, "AdventNet has been one of the early adopters of the JMX technology. The compatibility of their AdventNet ManageEngine with the JMX specification is a good thing for the JMX Community, increasing the choice of truly compatible products. I am pleased to have AdventNet in the JSR 160 expert group, following their recent involvement into the Java Community Process".

AdventNet has built a rich set of features in its scalable, high performance implementation, far beyond the JMX specification. This includes support for advanced services like fine-grained security, clustering, master-subagent architecture, an embedded rule engine for dynamic hot deployment of business rules for threshold based notifications etc. It provides out-of-the-box support for adapters such as SNMP, HTTP, Web Services, RMI etc. It also automatically generates JMX MBeans from various data sources like EJBs, servlets, Java APIs, log files, databases and SNMP agents.

Unlike previous technologies, ManageEngine enables exposing management information from applications as JMX MBeans post development. Further, going beyond just monitoring, ManageEngine provides the automatic ability to dynamically administer and control applications during runtime.

"We are very pleased at being the first independent vendor to reach the important milestone of JMX compliance. AdventNet's clear focus has always been on helping our customers achieve business benefits rapidly. With the new certification, our customers can now reap all the benefits of the JMX specification and much more. AdventNet is also committed to offering its JMX centric innovation to the JMX standards-setting process", said Dr. Tony Thomas, AdventNet's Chief Technology Officer.

JMX is increasingly being used by enterprises as the management standard for managing Java and J2EE applications. AdventNet ManageEngine is the only product to instantly offer real-time, standards-based and business-oriented application management information based on JMX. It has been hailed by customers and analysts alike as a key tool to bridge the "developer-operations divide". It is available for full download at
