    Direct Known Subclasses:
    PrivateMLet

    public class MLet
    extends URLClassLoader
    implements MLetMBean, MBeanRegistration, Externalizable
    
    Allows you to instantiate and register one or several MBeans in the MBean server coming from a remote URL. M-let is a shortcut for management applet. The m-let service does this by loading an m-let text file, which specifies information on the MBeans to be obtained. The information on each MBean is specified in a single instance of a tag, called the MLET tag. The location of the m-let text file is specified by a URL.

    The MLET tag has the following syntax:

    <MLET
    CODE = class | OBJECT = serfile
    ARCHIVE = " archiveList"
    [CODEBASE = codebaseURL]
    [NAME = mbeanname]
    [VERSION = version]
    >
    [arglist]
    </MLET>

    where:

    CODE = class
    This attribute specifies the full Java class name, including package name, of the MBean to be obtained. The compiled .class file of the MBean must be contained in one of the .jar files specified by the ARCHIVE attribute. Either CODE or OBJECT must be present.
    OBJECT = serfile
    This attribute specifies the .ser file that contains a serialized representation of the MBean to be obtained. This file must be contained in one of the .jar files specified by the ARCHIVE attribute. If the .jar file contains a directory hierarchy, specify the path of the file within this hierarchy. Otherwise a match will not be found. Either CODE or OBJECT must be present.
    ARCHIVE = " archiveList"
    This mandatory attribute specifies one or more .jar files containing MBeans or other resources used by the MBean to be obtained. One of the .jar files must contain the file specified by the CODE or OBJECT attribute. If archivelist contains more than one file:
    • Each file must be separated from the one that follows it by a comma (,).
    • archivelist must be enclosed in double quote marks.
    All .jar files in archivelist must be stored in the directory specified by the code base URL.
    CODEBASE = codebaseURL
    This optional attribute specifies the code base URL of the MBean to be obtained. It identifies the directory that contains the .jar files specified by the ARCHIVE attribute. Specify this attribute only if the .jar files are not in the same directory as the m-let text file. If this attribute is not specified, the base URL of the m-let text file is used.
    NAME = mbeanname
    This optional attribute specifies the object name to be assigned to the MBean instance when the m-let service registers it. If mbeanname starts with the colon character (:), the domain part of the object name is the default domain of the MBean server, as returned by MBeanServer.getDefaultDomain().
    VERSION = version
    This optional attribute specifies the version number of the MBean and associated .jar files to be obtained. This version number can be used to specify that the .jar files are loaded from the server to update those stored locally in the cache the next time the m-let text file is loaded. version must be a series of non-negative decimal integers each separated by a period from the one that precedes it.
    arglist
    This optional attribute specifies a list of one or more parameters for the MBean to be instantiated. This list describes the parameters to be passed the MBean's constructor. Use the following syntax to specify each item in arglist:
    <ARG TYPE= argumentTypeVALUE=value>
    where:
    • argumentType is the type of the argument that will be passed as parameter to the MBean's constructor.

    The arguments' type in the argument list should be a Java primitive type or a Java basic type (java.lang.Boolean, java.lang.Byte, java.lang.Short, java.lang.Long, java.lang.Integer, java.lang.Float, java.lang.Double, java.lang.String ). When an m-let text file is loaded, an instance of each MBean specified in the file is created and registered.

    The m-let service extends the java.net.URLClassLoader and can be used to load remote classes and jar files in the VM of the agent.

    Note - The MLet class loader uses the MBeanServerFactory.getClassLoaderRepository(javax.management.MBeanServer) to load classes that could not be found in the loaded jar files.

                       throws ClassNotFoundException
    

    Load a class, using the given ClassLoaderRepository if the class is not found in this MLet's URLs. The given ClassLoaderRepository can be null, in which case a ClassNotFoundException occurs immediately if the class is not found in this MLet's URLs.

    Parameters:
    name - The name of the class we want to load.
    clr - The ClassLoaderRepository that will be used to search for the given class, if it is not found in this ClassLoader. May be null.

method:findClass(java.lang.String) [NONE]

method:findLibrary(java.lang.String) [NONE]

  • findLibrary

    protected String findLibrary​(String libname)
    Returns the absolute path name of a native library. The VM invokes this method to locate the native libraries that belong to classes loaded with this class loader. Libraries are searched in the JAR files using first just the native library name and if not found the native library name together with the architecture-specific path name (OSName/OSArch/OSVersion/lib/nativelibname), i.e.

    the library stat on Solaris SPARC 5.7 will be searched in the JAR file as:

    1. libstat.so
    2. SunOS/sparc/5.7/lib/libstat.so
    the library stat on Windows NT 4.0 will be searched in the JAR file as:
    1. stat.dll
    2. WindowsNT/x86/4.0/lib/stat.dll

    More specifically, let nativelibname be the result of System.mapLibraryName(libname). Then the following names are searched in the JAR files, in order:
    nativelibname
    <os.name>/<os.arch>/<os.version>/lib/nativelibname
    where <X> means System.getProperty(X) with any spaces in the result removed, and / stands for the file separator character (File.separator).

    If this method returns null, i.e. the libraries were not found in any of the JAR files loaded with this class loader, the VM searches the library along the path specified as the java.library.path property.

    Overrides:
    findLibrary in class ClassLoader
    Parameters:
    libname - The library name.
    Returns:
    The absolute path of the native library.
    See Also:
    System.loadLibrary(String), System.mapLibraryName(String)

method:check(java.lang.String,java.net.URL,java.lang.String,javax.management.loading.MLetContent) [NONE]

  • check

    protected URL check​(String version,
                        URL codebase,
                        String jarfile,
                        MLetContent mlet)
                 throws Exception
    

    This method is to be overridden when extending this service to support caching and versioning. It is called from getMBeansFromURL when the version, codebase, and jarfile have been extracted from the MLet file, and can be used to verify that it is all right to load the given MBean, or to replace the given URL with a different one.

    The default implementation of this method returns codebase unchanged.

    Parameters:
    version - The version number of the .jar file stored locally.
    codebase - The base URL of the remote .jar file.
    jarfile - The name of the .jar file to be loaded.
    mlet - The MLetContent instance that represents the MLET tag.
    Returns:
    the codebase to use for the loaded MBean. The returned value should not be null.
    Throws:
    Exception - if the MBean is not to be loaded for some reason. The exception will be added to the set returned by getMBeansFromURL.
