Goal

If this code is run on a server:

home = (MBeanHome) ctx.lookup(MBeanHome.LOCAL_JNDI_NAME);
 ...
System.out.println("Invoking home.getMBeansByType('xxxxxxx)...");
Set AllMBeans = (Set)home.getMBeansByType("xxxxxx");
System.out.println("Going into loop...");
for (Iterator itr = AllMBeans.iterator(); itr.hasNext(); )
	{
	DynamicMBean mbean = (DynamicMBean)itr.next();
	System.out.println("Matches to the MBean query: " + mbean);"
	}
 ...

On an admin server it will return:

Invoking homeServer.getMBeansByType('xxxxxxx)....
Going into loop...

Matches to the MBean query: Proxy for <DOMAIN-NAME>:Location=<location1>,Name=<Name1>,Type=<Type>

While on a managed server it will return:

Invoking homeServer.getMBeansByType('xxxxxx)....
Going into loop...
Matches to the MBean query: Proxy for <DOMAIN-NAME>:Location=<location2>,Name=<Name3>,Type=<Type>

Matches to the MBean query: Proxy for <DOMAIN-NAME>:Location=<location2>,Name=<Name2>,Type=<Type>

Matches to the MBean query: Proxy for <DOMAIN-NAME>:Location=<location2>,Name=<Name1>,Type=<Type>

In our documentation we state:

A local MBeanHome provides access only to the Local Configuration MBeans and Runtime MBeans on a specific server
instance. It saves you the trouble of iterating through lists of MBeans. It also uses fewer network hops to access
MBeans because it requires your client to establish a direct connection to the server instance.

CONFIGURATION:
WLS 7.0 SP4, JDK 1.3.1_08
