QMan : Qpid Management Bridge

QMan is a management bridge for Qpid. It allows external clients to manage and monitor one or more Qpid brokers.

Please note: All WS-DM related concerns have to be considered part of M5 release.

QMan exposes the broker management interfaces using Java Management Extensions (JMX) and / or OASIS Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM). While the first one is supposed to be used by java based clients only the latter is an interoperable protocol that enables management clients to access and receive notifications of management-enabled resources using Web Services.

QMan can be easily integrated in your preexisting system in different ways :

  • As a standalone application : in this case it runs as a server. More specifically it enables communication via RMI (for JMX) or via HTTP (for WS-DM); Note that when the WS-DM adapter is used the JMX interface is not exposed;
  • As a deployable unit : it is also available as a standard Java web application (war); This is useful when there's a preexisting Application Server in your environment and you don't want start another additional server in order to run QMan.
