How to access server MBean properties at weblogic 11g using Java – JMX


If you want to get any property of Admin or Managed Server (Weblogic) using Java, then this post will help you.

The Oracle Enterprise Manager have a useful tool for explore MBean (System MBean Browser).

As you can see in the picture bellow:

Do you can to capture any server property desired with these java code:

1 – Reading a property if the application is deployed at server (local connection)

import javax.naming.InitialContext;

String serverName = System.getProperty("weblogic.Name");
InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext();
MBeanServer server = (MBeanServer)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jmx/runtime");
ObjectName objName = new ObjectName("com.bea:Name=" + serverName + ",Type=Server");
String pathJKS = (String) server.getAttribute(objName, "CustomTrustKeyStoreFileName");

2 – Reading a property if the application is remote (remote connection)

import java.util.Hashtable;
import javax.naming.Context;

  public static void main(String [] args) throws Exception{
    String serverName = "AdminServer";
    String hostName = "";
    String username = "weblogic";
    String password = "welcome1";
    int port = 10000;
    String protocol = "t3";
    String jndiroot = "/jndi/";
    String mserver = "";
    JMXServiceURL serviceURL = new JMXServiceURL(protocol, hostName, port, jndiroot + mserver);
    Hashtable h = new Hashtable();
    h.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, username);
    h.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);
    h.put(JMXConnectorFactory.PROTOCOL_PROVIDER_PACKAGES, "");
    JMXConnector connector = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(serviceURL, h);
    ObjectName objName = new ObjectName("com.bea:Name=" + serverName + ",Type=Server");
    String pathJKS = (String) connector.getMBeanServerConnection().getAttribute(objName, "CustomTrustKeyStoreFileName");

In the cases above, i’m reading a property that is called “CustomTrustKeyStoreFileName”, that’s a string path of the Trusted Keystore. But many and many properties could be read, for example:

  • CustomIdentityKeyStoreFileName
  • ListenPort
  • UploadDirectoryName

That’s it.

    I rarely drop remarks, but I read a bunch of responses on
    this page How to access server MBean properties at weblogic 11g using Java – JMX | Victor Jabur’s Blog.
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it only me or do a few of the responses look like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of the complete urls of all your social community pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    is it normal to provide passwords in clear text? Is it possible to use Foreign JNDI providers instead?

    • victorjabur says:

      No. Is not normal to provide passwords in clear text. This post is an example of shat is possible, but not always recommended for any scenarios. The foreign jndi is the most common use to acess resources on the weblogic
