1. a console that monitors the state of the app server itself (memeory usage, bean state, etc).
2. it doesn't have any convenient tool to validate the beans based on deployment xml.
1. Yes, but since JBoss is open source you can create your own tools. I saw a lot of small "custom" tools that are better than a complicated monitoring tool (that wants to make everything -but just not exactly how the user wants).
Most of these "small tools" are also application oriented, i.e. specific for a deployed application.
Where can I find those tools? Any URLs you would recommend? When I dump the stuff into the deploy folder, I see that JBoss validates it. But since the editor doesn't have feature like that, we would have to go through many steps to get it validate.
