JEE is a specification on its own and through it can be determined that any JEE6 compliant application server (full profile) must support JMX 2.0, even if the JDK does not support it out of the box.1 person found this helpful
"Support" in Java is a very loose term, it usually just means "bundled by default". Just because JDK6 has JMX 1.4 bundled does not mean you are stuck with it.
Yes, JEE specification (JSR 316) says it requires newer versions for some of the components provided by Java SE (EE.6.2 Java SE Requirements), but those additional requirements don't include JMX.
I couldn't find ee6-related specifications which require JMX2.0 other than the page mentioned above, and that's why I thought the page might be wrong.
Glassfish v3.1 and Java EE 6 SDK (yet not confirmed) seemingly do not have JMX2.0-specific packages. They use the JDK6's bundled JMX implementation (i.e.JMX1.4) left unchanged.
Also note that JSR 255 (JMX2.0) is currently on its Early Draft Review stage but not fixed yet as it is in Inactive status.
After several investigations, my conclusion is that Java EE 6 Technologies page is obsolete
as it is not possible that EE 6 includes a component with an incomplete (unreleased) version of specification.
I will report this issue to an appropriate forum (maybe technet community-Documentation ? )
Thanks for your attention.
