  • Method Details

    • getAttributeName

      public String getAttributeName()
      Returns a string representation of the name of the attribute.
      the attribute name.
    • apply

      Applies the AttributeValueExp on an MBean. This method calls getAttribute(name) and wraps the result as a ValueExp. The value returned by getAttribute must be a Number, String, or Boolean; otherwise this method throws a BadAttributeValueExpException, which will cause the containing query to be false for this name.

      Specified by:
      apply in interface ValueExp
      name - The name of the MBean on which the AttributeValueExp will be applied.
      The ValueExp.
      BadStringOperationException - when an invalid string operation is passed to a method for constructing a query
      BadBinaryOpValueExpException - when an invalid expression is passed to a method for constructing a query
      BadAttributeValueExpException - when an invalid MBean attribute is passed to a query constructing method
      InvalidApplicationException - when an invalid apply is attempted
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Returns the string representing its value.
      toString in class Object
      a string representation of the object.
    • setMBeanServer

      @Deprecated public void setMBeanServer(MBeanServer s)
      This method has no effect. The MBean Server used to obtain an attribute value is QueryEval.getMBeanServer().
      Sets the MBean server on which the query is to be performed.
      Specified by:
      setMBeanServer in interface ValueExp
      s - The MBean server on which the query is to be performed.
    • getAttribute

      protected Object getAttribute(ObjectName name)

      Return the value of the given attribute in the named MBean. If the attempt to access the attribute generates an exception, return null.

      The MBean Server used is the one returned by QueryEval.getMBeanServer().

      name - the name of the MBean whose attribute is to be returned.
      the value of the attribute, or null if it could not be obtained.
