Subject Re: ActiveMQ JNDI in Tomcat
Date Thu, 08 Nov 2007 20:00:38 GMT

You can configure your AMQ administrable objects via the Tomcat JNDI
InitialContext implementation. Here's the how-to documentation for Tomcat

Or w/in your servlet you can create your own InitialContext based on the file in your .../WEB-INF/classes directory; like so. 

Properties props = new Properties();
Context jmsCtx = new InitialContext (props);
Hope this helps - Joe
