Subject web-console with non-embedded broker
Date Sun, 04 Feb 2007 18:35:20 GMT

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to setup the ActiveMQ web-console with an ActiveMQ broker that is
embedded in another application. I've been unable to get this setup working
at all.

The version of ActiveMQ is 4.1 all around. I'm using Java 1.5 on MacOS X
10.4, and on linux.

The embedded Active MQ browser ia at port 61616 on localhost, has name
"OMS_BROKER", and has the JMX console enabled.

I've modified the activemq-4.1/activemq-web-console/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF
files to avoid the collision in port number with the embedded borker in the
web-console app as well. (I found that changing the target/* files had no
effect when tarting with "mvn jetty:run"). 

In the activemq.xml config file here, 

  1) I've set useJmx="false" broker element to avoid conflicts with the
other broker & JMX
  2) changed the openwire transport port to 61617 to avoid conflicts with
61616 of the embedded broker
  3) set a network connecter to

         <networkConnector name="OMS_BROKER"
uri="static://(tcp://localhost:61616)" failover="true"/>

     in addition to the multicast connector.

I've also turned off the transportConnectors altogether, by commenting out
that section of the activemq.xml

While these changes allow the web-console to start, I cannot browse the
embedded Broker. I see no Topics or queues available.

Can someone advise me on how to use the web-console to browse a broker
besides the one started by the web-console application?  

It seems that the web-console would have limitied utility without this
ability, and documentation of the procedure.

Thanks for any insight you might provide.
