Subject Re: How may I access ConnectionFactory/Queues etc. with JNDI-lookup?
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2008 17:01:41 GMT

Hi djencks,

i´ve answered directly to you instead of answering in the forum - this was a
kind of failure.
(Perhaps you didn´t recognized that a message was sent to you directly -
sorry :wistle:)

I´m using a Server-side kernel that has to be contacted by client-apps that
also have to share the JMS-Services (TopicConnectionFactory, Topics,
Queues). But read what i tried to ask you ;-):

I´ve answered  and wrote the follwing (original thread was
hi and thank you for your answer.

I really think that youŽre right.
The application consists of an server-application that provides a number of
EJBs for accessing a service.
Through this EJBs you have the possibility to login into the application,
send messages and so on.

For message-handling there have to be 3 Topics, accessable through jndi.
The clients need to read from this topics, but they are outside geronimo.
They just get access to it through jndi-lookup.

First step is to make a lookup to get the ejbs - this works fine, because
ejbs have jndi-names to be accessable from outside (through
Properties p1;
InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(p1);
chatClient = ctx.lookup("ChatClientRemote");

==> I need the same possibility for getting access to topics and surely the
TopicConnectionFactory. The client need to make a lookup to get them
(doesnŽt he?)
But in Geronimo i only have found the possibility to "Create a new JMS
Resource Group" in the JMS Resouces-menu.
This donŽt seems to be very helpful because - as i think you say - these
"Objects" are only available for internal use of Geronimo.
How may i install such - as you say - activemy property file configured
jndi? Is this really what i need for this? Do you have any precise sources
where i may look how to install something like this?

Thank you very much for further help
