Subject Re: embedded broker with admin web-console
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 21:40:52 GMT

Ok, I found this:

This has a section describing a stand-alone web-console (with
a unique URI endpoint). I downloaded the 5.2.0 war and followed 
the instructions (below). The restart of tomcat produced copious logs to
catalina.out from the web-console war startup, and tomcat got quite
confused and stopped responding...

Example configuration using Tomcat

To start web console in Tomcat 5.x use the following steps:

    * Download the appropriate activemq-web-console war
and copy it to ${TOMCAT_HOME}/webapps folder
    * Download the appropriate activemq-all jar
( and copy
it to ${TOMCAT_HOME}/common/lib folder
    * Modify your ${TOMCAT_HOME}/bin/ (.bat if you use Windows)
and include the following configuration

JAVA_OPTS="-Dwebconsole.type=properties \
-Dwebconsole.jms.url=tcp://localhost:61616 \
-Dwebconsole.jmx.url=service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://localhost:1099/jmxrmi \
-Dwebconsole.jmx.role= \

    * Start your Tomcat and visit the appropriate URL (e.g.


In theory this way of running the console will allow interaction with either
embedded broker or a stand-alone broker. if only I can get it to work!
