How to make JBoss MBeans visible in JConsole?

Problem Statement

When i use JConsole to view MBeans of a JBoss application server (via JMX), i only see core java MBeans(java.* etc.). The JBoss MBeans (jboss.*) do not show up.


For this you must tell the JBoss Application Server to use JBoss MBean Server, as against Sun’s built-in MBean Server.

In your JMX Configuration Options for JAVA_OPTS in your JBoss file, make sure that the options in bold are present (following example is from JBoss 4.03SP1):

Now, JBoss MBeans are also exposed via JMX and visible in JConsole MBeans tab.
