Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-3662) Can't use JMS transport from axis2.war on WebSphere Application Server 6.1
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2008 17:01:24 GMT


George Marrows commented on AXIS2-3662:

Hi Asankha - thanks for looking at this.

I agree that the polling option does not seem sensible. Like Cathal (originator of the mail
used in the bug report), I'm developing a custom MDB-based approach. You're right this will
lose hot deployment of new services that need to listen on a new queue/topic (because a new
MDB will also need to be declared to listen on that destination), but I hope to be able to
maintain hot update of changed services. Perhaps that's an acceptable compromise for running
on a wider range of app servers in a J2EE-compliant way?

Another option of course is to see how other ws stacks have handled this issue, if any have.

> This means that the only way of deploying Axis2 with JMS transport on WAS is to use the
standalone axis server. This works, but a deployment within the application server would be
greatly preferable.
