[logback-user] Websphere specific JMX configuration?

I can try looking into this further when I have some spare time.

I remember reading about this issue before (can't remember where, and not 
sure if it was related to logback or some other JMX utility), and it 
turned out to be just that WebSphere handles JMX somewhat differently, and 
therefore JMX MBeans that are registered by deployed applications are not 
visible by the standard jConsole. It might have something to do with 
WebSphere creating multiple JMX MBean Servers, and the jConsole points to 
a different one?

I'll try to dig up more information and will let you know when I find

Hi Chris,

Would you be interested in investigating this further? You would need to 
build logback from sources. This is explained at [1]. If you are using 
IntelliJ IDEA, the steps are quite trivial. Under eclipse, it's a bit 
more involved. If you can't be bothered with installing Scala, just 
remove the "STest" files (tests written in scala) from the source tree.

Let me know what you think.
