Hello James,

thank you for answer. My hope was, that I can use the topic element of the
configuration file. I have found the description of the topic element  in
the reference page . The topic element has got one property called
'properties'. The description says: 'Get the properties from this instance
for storing in JNDI.'.

Is ist not possible to define the JNDI name of the topic at this place? How
do I have to do it(the format of the entry)?
