JMXTERM is a command line based interactive JMX client software. It opens a command line console and user can open connection to an MBean server, then operation against it with interactive commands. The user experience of JMXTERM is like a combination of jconsole and ftp. With JMXTERM, JMX operation doesn't have to be done in graphical environment anymore.

Several serious bugs including white space in MBean name and user/password based authentication were resolved in version 0.2. Besides, version 0.2 adds the feature of listing local running Java process even if they aren't launched with jmxremote argument.
