Jolokia is a fresh way of accessing JMX MBeans remotely. It is different from JSR-160 connectors, as it is an agent based approach that uses JSON over HTTP for its communication. It provides new features for JMX remoting: bulk requests allow for multiple JMX operations with a single remote server roundtrip, there is a fine-grained security mechanism for restricting JMX access on specific JMX operations, JSR-160 proxy mode, and history tracking, to name a few. Jolokia's origins are in jmx4perl. Client bindings in addition to Perl have already been added, and more are planned.
This release brings cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) support to Jolokia. Other new features include AMD support for jolokia.js, time-based eviction for historical values, a configurable filter for selecting an OSGi HTTP service, and inclusion of no-cache HTTP headers in the response.
