I am interested in the possibility of  automatically reconnecting/starting disconnected Agents via a maintenance process, as occasionally we have Agents drop off due to networking or database issues that require nothing more than being restarted.  Is it possible to access Service Manager or its various components via Java API to request Agents be started/stopped?
