Subject FW: Genericjmsra and geronimo 1.1.1
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2007 09:24:14 GMT
Were you aware that the WebSphere MQ team have released in their latest MQ fixpack a MQ JCA
adapter that enables both Geronimo and WAS-CE to work with MQ enabled applications?
I think you can use the transactional mq client as part of the setup to provide transactionality.
You can find out more by downloading the fixpack and taking a look at the included documentation.
(Which from what I recall is very good).
I took the following snippet from the fixpack readme:
1.3 New in this fix pack

Release includes the following new function.

Support of JCA

Release or later includes a J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) 
version 1.5 resource adapter for WebSphere MQ. This allows JMS applications 
and message driven beans, running in an application server, to access the 
resources of a WebSphere MQ queue manager.The WebSphere MQ resource 
adapter is supported on all WebSphere MQ Version 6.0 platforms except z/OS. 
Using the resource adapter, an application can connect to a WebSphere 
MQ Version 6.0 queue manager in either client mode or bindings mode, 
or to a WebSphere MQ Version 5.3 queue manager in client mode only. 
You can install it on any application server that is certified as being 
compliant with the J2EE 1.4 specification. 

For more information see the "The WebSphere MQ resource adapter" appendix F
of the Using Java manual version GC34-6591-02 or later which is 
available from: <>

Refer to the document "Using JCA" at
This document will be periodically updated with information relating to the JCA feature. 

You can download the fixpack from here:

Please respond to

Genericjmsra and geronimo 1.1.1	



Any clue for this earlier post? 

There is a requirement to build a jms resource adapter which would in turn converse with Websphere
MQ Series. As far as the resource adapter is concerned, the tutorial at
<>  is
But the requirement is also to make the resource adapter as a part of distributed transactions,
so that on receiving the message (MDB at geronimo 1.1.1 side) through the jms RA,the MDB would
do some DB operations. 
The DB operation would be achieved using tranql db2 xa adapter which is already avaialble.

The tutorial mentions in order to achieve that, 

" The RA for JMS does not support XA. This can be added to make WebsphereMQ or OpenJMS part
of distributed transactions in Geronimo. 
There is a sample GenericJMS RA with XA support available in Sun This RA can be
deployed in Geronimo to get XA support for JMS Providers. Visit the following link for further
details, <> " 

There are some issues in deploying the genericjmsra at
 on geronimo 1.1.1. 
Please let know has any one tried using genericjmsra on geronimo 1.1.1 and can guide accordingly.


Warm Regards,
