remove redundant "version" key property from the ObjectName of the JMX MBeans

                 Key: QPID-2322
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-2322
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Java Broker, Java Management : JMX Interface
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Robbie Gemmell
            Assignee: Robbie Gemmell
             Fix For: 0.7

Brokers from 0.5 onward have an additional version=X key property in the MBean ObjectName.
This was added in 0.5 to enable version tracking for the MBeans to accomodate compatibility
checks where necessary after changes. In a new version tracking system was put in
place, using the new ServerInformation MBean. As such, the version key property in the ObjectName
is no longer required.

Motivation for removing the key property is that for certain JMX operations that require knowing
the exact ObjectName of the single remote MBean you wish to operate on, you must know the
value of the version key, which is different on each type of MBean and also differs between
releases. Whilst it is possible to easily Query the server for this information, the ability
to first perform this query is not always available to the user (eg for non-bespoke server
health checks) and as such they need to know the exact value in advance. Removing the now-unused
version key from the ObjectName will remove this need in future broker releases.
