Subject Glassfish 3.0.1 and ActiveMQ 5.4.2 JNDI names cannot be found
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 13:20:14 GMT
I am using ActiveMQ as an embedded broker, I have everything setup and I'm
able to receive messages from an external client to my message driven bean. 
The problem I am having is injecting resources from a session bean for the
connection factory and messge queue.  Glassfish is not able to resolve the
JNDI names for those definitions in an application client.  Here is my

Resource Adapter Config:

ServerURL = vm://localhost
BrokerXmlConfig = broker:(tcp://localhost:61616)
Password = defaultPassword
UseInboundSession = false
UserName = defaultUser

Connector Connection Pool:

PoolName = ActiveMQMsgPool
Resource Adapter = activemq-rar-5.4.2
Connection Definition = javax.jms.ConnectionFactory
Transaction Support = XATransaction
&lt;Default Values for the rest of the settings&gt;

Connector Resource:

JNDI Name = ActiveMQConnResource
Pool Name = ActiveMQMsgPool
Status = Enabled

Admin Object Resource:

JNDI Name = ActiveMQ_MsgQueue
Resource Adapter = activemq-rar-5.4.2
Resource Type = javax.jms.Queue
Class Name = org.apache.activemq.command.ActiveMQQueue
Status = Enabled
PhysicalName = ActiveMQ_MsgQueue

JMS Resources -> Connection Factories shows my connection pool definition in
the navigation tree but not in the details list to the right of the tree. 
When I click on the ActiveMQMsgPool tree item I get the following error in
the right pane of the web page.  "REST Request
failed with response code '404'"  When I click on the JMS Resources ->
Destination Resources I don't see the "ActiveMQ_MsgQueue" definition of the
Admin Object Resources in the right side details list of destinations. 
However I can click on the ActiveMQ_MsgQueue destination which displays with
no error however the Physical Destination Name is blank.

My Message Driven Bean uses this sun-resources.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
&lt;!DOCTYPE resources PUBLIC &quot;-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD
Application Server 9.0 Resource Definitions //EN&quot;


My Message Driven Bean uses this sun-ejb-jar.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
&lt;!DOCTYPE sun-ejb-jar PUBLIC &quot;-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD
GlassFish Application Server 3.0 EJB 3.1//EN&quot;


And inside my MDB I have the following annotation:

@MessageDriven(mappedName = "ActiveMQ_MsgQueue", activationConfig =  {
        @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName = "acknowledgeMode",
propertyValue = "Auto-acknowledge"),
        @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName = "destinationType",
propertyValue = "javax.jms.Queue"),
        @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName = "destination",
propertyValue = "ActiveMQ_MsgQueue")

The message driven bean works correctly and receives messages from an
external ActiveMQ client sending a message on the queue.  Also from a
Glassfish EE application client I can send a message to the queue and it is
recieved by the MDB using the following code:

            ActiveMQConnectionFactory connectionFactory = new
ActiveMQConnectionFactory( "tcp://localhost:61616" ); // I cannot use -

            Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();

            Session session = connection.createSession( false,

            Destination destination = session.createQueue(
"ActiveMQ_MsgQueue" );

            MessageProducer producer = session.createProducer( destination
            producer.setDeliveryMode( DeliveryMode.PERSISTENT );

            String text = "Hello from App Client";

            MapMessage message = session.createMapMessage();
            message.setString( "name", text );

            producer.send( message );

But what I cannot do and what I thought I should be able to do is inject the
connection factory and queue like I can with a non-activemq (jmsra)
Connection Factory and Destination Resource.  So the following code fails
because Glassfish cannot resolve the JNDI names of the connection factory
and queue:

@Resource(mappedName = "ActiveMQMsgPool")
private static ConnectionFactory connectionFactory = null;

@Resource(mappedName = "ActiveMQ_MsgQueue")
private static Queue queue = null;

I have the following sun-resources.xml file embedded in my App Client
NetBeans project:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
&lt;!DOCTYPE resources PUBLIC &quot;-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD
Application Server 9.0 Resource Definitions //EN&quot;


I have tried to use a sun-ejb-jar.xml with settings for "Resource
References" and "Resource Environment References" with no success.  So the
question is why does are JNDI names for the ActiveMQ resources not visible
within the Glassfish container?  Are there other settings within the Admin
Console that need to be setup? or are there other defintions I need to set
in the App Client NetBeans project?

Thanks in advance for the help...
