Subject Re: NullPointerException with RA on Glassfish
Date Tue, 20 Jun 2006 16:59:17 GMT

Thank you again for your quick response.  I posted a forum message describing
this issue and received a response from the Glassfish people.  This is what
they said:

"Thanks for trying out GlassFish. Since I have only the trace snippet above,
I tried to debug this problem by going through ActiveMQ RA's source
available at

This is what I understand happens. Please correct me if there are errors.
When ActiveMQConnectionFactory
is created at the createConnectionFactory method of,
the ConnectionManager is initialized to a *transient* variable "manager".
Since ConnectionFactory instances can be serialized/deserialized while
publishing to JNDI (as is the case in Project GlassFish), the
connectionManager reference is lost and hence the NPE. The fix ideally
should be in the ActiveMQRA's code. You could copy me [sivakumart AT sun DOT
com] while you are discussing this with ActiveMQ, if you wish. If you still
have any issues, please provide a copy of your domain.xml [connector
connection pool, resource configuratin information] and the entire trace in

Now, I'm new to all this resource adapter stuff, does that make sense to
