Subject Deploying the Resource Adapter (was: Receipt of Simple Text Message)
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 13:23:12 GMT
Thank you for a quick answer James!

I have configured the application partly as per your instructions, in 
that I'm using another method to receive the messages, and converting 
them to JSM TextMessage to forward onto the ActiveMQ connector.

I have deployed the connector in Glassfish setting the only property: 
ServerUrl tcp://localhost:25001 and have made the message bean aware of 
the adapter. However when the server starts up, I am unable to connect 
to port 25001 (using simple telnet) and I notice the following message 
in the logs:

[2008-03-18 00:21:25,519] ERROR 
( - Endpoint connection to JMS broker 
failed: Could not connect to broker URL: tcp://localhost:6969. Reason: Connection refused
[2008-03-18 00:21:25,519] ERROR 
( - Endpoint will try to reconnect to 
the JMS broker in 30 seconds

Is there anything I'm missing here.

Please excuse the myriad of questions, I have spent quite some time 
reading all the docs and doing my research.

Thank you!

important issue is that the message volumes can be quite high during peak periods, so the
resource adapter needs to be able to queue the messages so that the server does not run out
of resources.
