Merlin has some preliminary JMX support in place but it is very 
experimental.  The strategy is to provide fine-grain management of 
component type managers (Appliances) and containers (Blocks) that are 
registered automatically by the kernel.  Once this is in place we deal 
with loading of MBeans supplied by components. The Appliance/Block 
managers should be interesting as this will enable things like 
redeployment of a system sub-set using updated configurations.

In the meantime - addition of Excalibur Logging is right up high on the 

Cheers, Steve.
