Weblogic MBean Example (ExecuteQueueRuntime)

The aim of this tutorial is to connect to a Weblogic MBean from a remote client and extract some Information We will be connecting to the ExecuteQueueRuntime Mbean and getting the idle thread count . Leave any questions or problems as comments and I will endeavour to answer them.

This article assumes that you have a compatible version of Weblogic installed and running and you have a compatible version of the JDK aswell.

Versions used in this example
Weblogic Server 8.1N/A
JDK 1.4.2N/A
Links to these files can be found here

In the source file you are connecting to the admin port on weblogic.

Please make sure the the java versions on your weblogic server and the java version on the client machine are the same or else you will get incompatible serialVersionUID errors like the ones below.

<9/09/2009 01:22:39 PM EST> <Error> <RJVM> <BEA-000503> <Incoming message header or abbreviation processing failed java.io.InvalidClassException: javax.management.ObjectName; local class incompatible: stream classdesc serialVersionUID = -5467795090068647408, local class serialVersionUID = 1081892073854801359


Write and Compile the Example
  1. Write the client code and save it as WeblogicMBeanExample.java in your working directory. Make sure you edit the url, username and password to match your system. The url is basically your weblogic admin url.

     9. import weblogic.management.runtime.ExecuteQueueRuntimeMBean;
    11. public class WeblogicMBeanExample{
    13.     public static void main(String[] args){
    14.         new WeblogicMBeanExample().GoBeans();

    27.         try{
    28.             Properties prop = new Properties();
    29.             prop.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, 
    30.                 "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory");
    31.             prop.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, url);
    32.             prop.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, username);
    33.             prop.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);
    35.             Context ctx = new InitialContext(prop);
    36.             home = (MBeanHome) ctx.lookup(MBeanHome.ADMIN_JNDI_NAME);
    37.             mbeanSet = home.getMBeansByType("ExecuteQueueRuntime");
    38.             mbeanIterator = mbeanSet.iterator();
    40.             while(mbeanIterator.hasNext()){
    41.                 mbeanExecuteQueueRuntime = 
    42.                                 (ExecuteQueueRuntimeMBean)mbeanIterator.next();
    43.                 ShowInfo(mbeanExecuteQueueRuntime);
    44.             }
    45.         }catch (Exception e){
    46.             e.printStackTrace();
    47.         }
    49.     }
    51.     static void ShowInfo(ExecuteQueueRuntimeMBean meqr){
    52.         try{
    53.             System.out.print(meqr.getName());
    54.             System.out.print("\t\t"+meqr.getExecuteThreadCurrentIdleCount());
    55.             System.out.print("\t\t"+meqr.getParent().getName());
    56.         }catch(Exception e){
    57.             System.out.print("\t\tError");
    58.             e.printStackTrace();
    59.         }
    60.         finally{
    61.             System.out.println("\n");
    62.         }
    63.     }
    64. }
    Hide line numbers

  2. You need the weblogic.jar to compile this. I strongly suggest you take a copy of the weblogic.jar file from the weblogic server you are trying to connect to. This will limit any incompatibility issues. Copy the weblogic.jar file to your working directory. It should be with your source file.

  3. Now open a promt to where you saved the file and compile it.

    javac -classpath .;weblogic.jar WeblogicMBeanExample.java

  4. Now run it.

    java -cp .;weblogic.jar WeblogicMBeanExample
