      Lots of "native" Windows Services, like "Exchange" or "MS SQL Server" supply a
      tray icon to the admin's desktop that allows to (remotely) see the "health
      state" of the service. This is really nice since a tray icon is always there and
      it can call for help in a simple way. So I want to suggest that GlassFish comes
      with such a tray icon.

      • Shows the "health state" of the service: Could check several paramters (the
        service's "blood pressure" and "pulse"), so the admin can see whether the
        service is idle, running at it's limits, hanging or crashed, or just stopped by
      • Shows the most essential health state information in the tool tip when the
        mouse hovers over the icon.
      • Shows a "bubble" automatically, containing alerts, when bad things have
        happened (like the server not responding anymore, IP connections broken, or
        another admin stopped the instance).
      • Has popup menu containing the most essentials commands, like "Administrate"
        (opens the browser to http://xyz:4848), "Shut Down", "Start Up".

      This would be a really smart tool for the most essential operational monitoring.
