JBOSS 7 support in SCOM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all

    Just wondering if anyone has an idea of when JBOSS 7 might come into support in the JEE management pack?

    Not sure if we should sit tight or invest in something else.

  • From the Microsoft product team standpoint, we need to do some substantial work in the BeanSpy servlet in order for it to work with the changes in JBoss 7 (vs. JBoss 6 and the other Java app servers).  We want to do the work and get the JBoss 7 support, but it doesn't currently have a definite schedule.   At this point, I would say that JBoss 7 support is at least several months away, and it could well be longer.   Hopefully that's enough info for you to decide whether to "sit tight" or look elsewhere.

    I would note that the JEE management packs for WebLogic and WebSphere were updated recently (October 2013) to support the latest versions.  WebLogic 12c is now supported, as are WebSphere 8.0/8.5.  But these did not require the substantial changes to BeanSpy that JBoss 7 requires.

  • The JEE management packs are a separate package, but they were updated at the same time as UR4 was released.   See http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44576.   If you check the JBoss MP Guide, you'll see that JBoss 7 is now covered. :-)

    But note that you need the updated UR4 Linux/UNIX agent in order to correctly discover JBoss 7.  So you are strongly recommended to install the UR4 agent first, then the latest version of the JEE management pack.

  • Dont suppose you have any further info since your last post Mr K?

  • Unfortunately, we don't have any further updates.  We'd like to get JBoss 7 support added, but I just don't know when it's going to happen.

  • Hello, I was curious about the status for the management pack of JBoss 7? Do you have any further update about this? Why is this taking so long? JBoss 8 has changed in beta last month. Are you also developing for JBoss 8 at the moment?

  • This sounds like there is not an actual plan to deliver JBoss 7 support in the foreseeable future. Is my assumption correct?

    Cheers,

    Mark

  • Our plan is to have management packs for JBoss 7 and JBoss 8 (Wildfly) in the October 2014 Update Rollup for OpsMgr.   This will be "Update Rollup 4" for System Center 2012 R2 in accordance with our regular quarterly update rollups.

  • Awesome! I was looking at the old JEE page it seems. Thanks Michael. I'll get this set up in our sandbox!

  • Is there any plan to release this for SCOM 2012 SP1? Or should we accelerate our upgrade to R2?

  • As of now there are no plans to bring the new updates to JEE Management Packs to 2012 SP1.
