Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQNET-262) NMS cannot be used if installed in the GAC
Date Tue, 20 Jul 2010 23:24:53 GMT


Jim Gomes commented on AMQNET-262:

After researching and thinking on this topic, I am beginning to question the use of the GAC
with NMS.  One of the primary strengths of the architecture of NMS with broker specific provider
implementations is that you can do simple file copies to install the assemblies.  This allows
for side-by-side installation of different versions of NMS.  What is the requirement to install
NMS and the provider assemblies into the GAC?  I can't see how this has any benefit, but I
can see how it has several downsides.  Perhaps explaining how installing NMS+Providers into
the GAC is a "good thing" would be helpful.  I'm beginning to think we are trying to find
a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

>         Environment: Windows .NET 2.0

>         Attachments: NMS GAC.patch
>          Time Spent: 45 minutes
>  Remaining Estimate: 0 minutes
> If you install {{Apache.NMS.dll}} and {{Apache.NMS.ActiveMQ.dll}} in the GAC then NMS
is not able to load {{Apache.NMS.ActiveMQ.dll}}.
> {{NMSConnectionFactory.cs}} is storing the pre-defined connection factories in _schemaProviderFactoryMap_,
but is storing the DLL file names to locate the assemblies.
> One solution would be to store the _AssemblyQualifiedName_ instead and leave the assembly
loading to the system.
