FWIW. @ConstructorProperties is closely related to MXBean.
MXBean provides an easy way to define and implement your managed mbean
using user-defined types and the MXBean framework converts those types
into the public API and javax.management.openmbean types so that the
client doesn't need the user-defined types to be present. In other
words, MXBean removes the need to code in javax.management.openmbean.
