JMX Monitoring for Scout

Scout is a very convenient monitoring platform in the cloud that I have started to use recently. I needed to monitor JMX data point, something that Scout doesn't do by default.

Therefore, I've created a JMX plug-in which, after some QA from the awesome team at Scout, just ended up in their repository of supported plug-ins.
