You need to connect to distributed components with JMX connectors. The current specification does not define the API for these connectors so you're left with whatever is implemented by the JMX vendor whose JMX implementation you are using.
There is currently work in progress in JSR 160 to define a connector frameowork for the JMX.
For more information, and example connector implementations using RMI, SOAP and JMS see JMX: Managing J2EE with Java Management Extensions. It covers the distributed services of JMX.
Hope this helps,
