Thanks Krishna.
I have added the activation config details in the openejb-jar.xml file. But still its having the same problem.
But if in the geronimo-application.xml file,if I mention the parenId="geronimo/activemq/1.0/car", then it will work fine.
But mentioning the parentId as geronimo/activemq/1.0/car will create a few problems in the my web application.
How will I resolve the error?As in without even mentioning the parentId in the geronimo-application.xml file.

Hi Anshuk,
Ur EJB- MDB plan should have a Activation Spec section.
Add this within <message-driven> and try.

While deploying an ear application file(containing EJB and WAR),
I facing the error: java.lang.IllegalStateException : ActivationSpec was never registered with ResourceAdapter                                                          ResourceAdapter is not of type: org.activemq.ra.ActiveMQResourceAdapter

The deployment plan file of the mdb looks like this:

        <resource-link>ActiveMQ RA</resource-link>

The application.xml of the ear:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<application xmlns=" "
xmlns:xsi=" "

The EAR deployment(geronimo-application.xml) file of the application looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        xmlns=" "


Can any body tell whar extra configuration do I need to mention?
