More WS5 irritation
Add to the list of wsadmin annoyances that invoking some of the really useful methods on MBeans results not in a string or usable Java object but a unique string naming the instance of the class. Having this object identifier might be useful if there were some means of then manipulating it, except there isn't. Thanks for the useless string com.ibm.ws.foo.bar08FA7100A0. This quirk makes it furiously hard to do anything with, for instance, clusters, like determining their members without enumerating every server in the cell and figuring out from each one if it is a member. I suspect that I'm going to have to write Jython or Java programs that directly use the Java classes rather than work around the limitations of wsadmin.
