public class: MBeanServerNotification [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:

Represents a notification emitted by the MBean Server through the MBeanServerDelegate MBean. The MBean Server emits the following types of notifications: MBean registration, MBean unregistration.

To receive MBeanServerNotifications, you need to register a listener with the MBeanServerDelegate MBean that represents the MBeanServer. The ObjectName of the MBeanServerDelegate is MBeanServerDelegate#DELEGATE_NAME , which is JMImplementation:type=MBeanServerDelegate.

The following code prints a message every time an MBean is registered or unregistered in the MBean Server {@code mbeanServer}:

private static final NotificationListener printListener = new NotificationListener() {
    public void handleNotification(Notification n, Object handback) {
        if (!(n instanceof MBeanServerNotification)) {
            System.out.println("Ignored notification of class " + n.getClass().getName());
        MBeanServerNotification mbsn = (MBeanServerNotification) n;
        String what;
        if (n.getType().equals(MBeanServerNotification.REGISTRATION_NOTIFICATION))
            what = "MBean registered";
        else if (n.getType().equals(MBeanServerNotification.UNREGISTRATION_NOTIFICATION))
            what = "MBean unregistered";
            what = "Unknown type " + n.getType();
        System.out.println("Received MBean Server notification: " + what + ": " +

            MBeanServerDelegate.DELEGATE_NAME, printListener, null, null);

An MBean which is not an MBeanServerDelegate may also emit MBeanServerNotifications. In particular, there is a convention for MBeans to emit an MBeanServerNotification for a group of MBeans.

An MBeanServerNotification emitted to denote the registration or unregistration of a group of MBeans has the following characteristics:

MBeans which emit these group registration/unregistration notifications will declare them in their MBeanNotificationInfo .
