[JMX-9] Eliminate several uses of reflection in java.jmx Created: 28/Oct/12 Updated: 16/Dec/12
There are a fair number of occurrences of reflection in java.jmx that can be eliminated with the addition of suitable type hints.

jmx-9-eliminate-reflection-v1.txt dated Oct 28 2012 eliminates most reflection warnings from java.jmx.
I would recommend that you check the type hints carefully before applying this, in case I messed some of them up. I am not familiar with javax.management library usage. I simply did a lot of looking at method signatures for methods used in the code in the Java library docs.
In particular, I wasn't sure whether connection should be a javax.management.MBeanServer or MBeanServerConnection. MBeanServerConnection is good enough for most of the code, but for the .registerMBean method invocation in register-mbean it needs to be a MBeanServer to avoid reflection. Perhaps it should be MBeanServer everywhere? My main question is whether that would limit the code's generality too much.

Well it shouldn't be MBeanServer everywhere. When using the with-connection macro connection is a RemoteMBeanServerConnection and 'registerMBean' isn't a defined method.
I'm thinking perhaps we just change register-mbean to always get the local JMX server rather than using the connection binding. You can't register mbeans with a remote jmx server.
