Running the BTM API for Java using JMX

This section describes the TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor BTM API for Java using JMX and includes:

This API provides the mechanism for an instrumented application or activity to communicate business transaction information to TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor.

This API is only appropriate for long running, server-type applications. The BTM MBean runs directly inside any Java 5.0 or higher Java virtual machine. This allows the BTM MBean to be instantiated under the platform MBean Server, and can be invoked directly from JMX applications to monitor standalone Java applications.

You might instrument a new or existing application for several reasons, including:

  • The existing TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor extensions do not provide support for your application.
  • Your transaction pathway is not message based.
  • The only way to get information about the transactions is from the application.

See BTM Logging for help with diagnostic logging.

See Examples of processes and methods for an example of an instrumented application.
