BeanSpy: WebSphere Application Server JMXQuery to list deployed applications

If you are running WebSphere, here are a few quick steps to validating the BeanSpy installation.

Once you have deployed BeanSpy to a web application server, the next step is to see that it works.  While look at the /Stats or /Stats/Info is a nice cross-platform solution, sometimes you want to know what is running on your specific application server.

As of this writing, the supported versions of WebSphere 6.1 or 7.0. 

Note: adjust hostname and port respectively

Finally, another quick test is to hit the previously mentioned Stats or Stats/Info pages for JVM information.

  1. Hi Nick,

    Couple of things:

    1) Please don't double post.

    2) It would probably be better to post this over in the TechNet forums like…/systemcenteroperationsmanager

    3) When you post on the forums, please include some more information such as attachments with the output of the Stats or Stats/Info.

    4) What is the version of WebSphere you are trying to discover?

  2. My guess is that there is probably some non-standard XML libraries being loaded.  By chance in the endorsed directory do you have a different XML encoder?…/class-loader-howto.html
