At the moment, several of our JMX tests cannot be run on the CI server. See the broken tests here (**) for an example.
Thus we have had to disable them directly in the code. Otherwise, we get an "Unsupported protocol: jmxmp" error.
The reason is that the jmxremote_optional.jar is not available in the classpath of the JVM.
- EBR-349 (**)
- jmxremote_optional.jar can be acquired from Oracle in the JMX Remote API 1.0.1_04 Reference Implementation (**) download.
To solve this problem on my Mac workstation, I downloaded the JMX Remote API 1.0.1_04 Reference Implementation (see link above) and extracted jmxremote_optional.jar into the lib/ext folder of my local JVM.
