JMX 2 Postponed Until Java SE 8
It was disappointing, but not altogether surprising, to learn that JMX 2 will not be part of Java SE 7. Anyone who saw my Colorado Software Summit 2008 presentation JMX Circa 2008 is aware of how excited I was for some of the new features that were tentatively planned for Java SE 7. Java Management Extensions (JMX) is already a highly useful technology, but the advancements in JMX hoped for in Java SE 7 are convenient and welcome. With the long period of time between Java SE 6 and Java SE 7, it likely means quite a wait for JMX 2 features that are now expected with Java SE 8.
