AdventNet Joins Expert Group For JMX, The Java Management Standard

Pleasanton, California., April 8 2002

AdventNet, Inc., a pioneer in standards based Java application management, has joined the Java Community Process Expert Group defining standards for Java Management Extensions (JMX), the key standard for managing Java and J2EE applications. AdventNet is now a member of the expert group focusing on JSR (Java Specification Request) 160. JSR 160 is a key initiative developing the client-side specifications for JMX, which extend the initial JMX standards to management applications.

AdventNet was among the first software vendors to recognize the potential of JMX as a management standard to bring all the benefits of standards-based management of Java applications to enterprises. These benefits include investment protection, avoidance of vendor lock-in, interoperability with other applications, etc. The AdventNet ManageEngine, based on JMX, is the only product to offer standards-based business-oriented manageability for business processes, applications and middleware infrastructure. The core technology for the AdventNet ManageEngine is the widely used AdventNet Agent Toolkit, built on JMX and SNMP technologies.

AdventNet's Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Tony Thomas, a recognized expert in application and network management in the telecom and enterprise segments, said, "JMX is the universal, open technology for monitoring and managing Java applications. AdventNet considers it a privilege to have been invited by the distinguished panel of experts shaping the JMX standard. We are honored to be a part of the standards development process for this important technology".

AdventNet provides one of the first independent implementations of the JMX standard. AdventNet's products, including AdventNet Middleware Manager, AdventNet ManageEngine and AdventNet Agent Toolkit are built on standard technologies, including JMX. These products enable proactive management of mission-critical J2EE and Java application deployments, and will support the new JMX standards being developed. In keeping with AdventNet's complete commitment to openness, all these and other products are available for download in their entirety at
