Apart from showing quite an example of easy enhancement of JSF-based web application as discussed earlier in "Extending the NetBeans Tutorial JSF-JPA-Hibernate Application, Part 1 - Co-ordinating Query Views Based on Parameter Passing from JSF View to Managed Bean", the NetBeans tutorial JSF-JPA-Hibernate application created ('SimpleJpaHibernateApp') can also be easily extended to demonstrate JMX monitoring on Hibernate v3 and the latest Ehcache 1.3.0 - the respective very common open source Java object/relational persistence and caching implementations, which have also included support for JMX to enable monitoring on their operational states and statistics, including the overall (e.g. query and 2nd level cache) cache hit/miss statistics, time of the slowest query (from Hibernate v3), and individual cache hit/miss statistics (from Ehcache 1.3.0).
While the NetBeans tutorial "Using Hibernate With the Java Persistence API" and "NetBeans Wiki - UsingHibernateWithJPA" demonstrate ease of JSF-JPA-Hibernate application construction with usage of JPA and Hibernate facilities in the persistence-tier, it is interesting to explore also on the flexibility and power of JSF in the web-tier.
My colleagues Paul Cheung,
Luis-Miguel Alventosa and myself together developed, and presented for, this year's JavaOne Hands-On Lab1420 on "Non-instrusive Monitoring and Troubleshooting of Java Applications using Java Management Extension (JMX), JConsole and Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP)".
JavaChina2005 was a Java developer conference organised by Sun Microsystems in 9 major cities throughout China with total of more than 9,000 attendee registrations.
I am glad to one of JavaChina2005 technical session speakers...
