JMX programmers know that getting an MBeanServerConnection from a JMXConnector comes with a string attached: no support for the registerMBean() method, and thus no way to register a local MBean with the remote server. The JMXRemote project aims to fix that, and Lu Jian shows how it works.
A small fix can be a big headache when you need to re-build, re-test, re-package and re-deploy software. If the change is small enough, distributing it as a minor "patch" makes a lot of sense. As Lu Jian explains, the project PatchExpert makes this straightforward.
