Ivan,

I am rebuilding the Geronimo after a clean. I will post the startup log after build is complete.

BTW, where did you get the 2.2 snapshot binaries? I searched around but did not them.

Thanks,

Raj

I have checked the 2.2 snapshot binary package of 03/16/2009, activmq.xml is there.
Could you paste the startup log ? I would like to see which modules are started.
Thanks !

Hi Ivan,

Yes, i can start the server. I did it from Maven as well as by installing the server in a separate folder. In both these cases, activemq.xml files is not copied.

Thanks,

Raj

Hi, Raj:
         Could you start up your build binary Geronimo-tomcat/jetty server ? If no activemq.xml file in the /var/activemq/conf, the server could not start up.
         I will download a binary 2.2 package from the Apache site to check it, it seems that the newest one is 03/16/2009.
         Thanks !

Ivan,

I do see these two lines in the pom.xml. However, I do not see the 'Add JMS Broker' button in the web console. As I said before, activemq.xml file is not copied in var/activemq/conf folder as well.

Thanks,

Raj

Those two lines are in the geronimo\plugins\activemq\activemq-broker\pom.xml.
To add a new borker, open the console, click  JMS Server on the left navigation tree of your console, then there is a link Add JMS Borker.

Hi David,

I followed the following steps to build the Geronimo from trunk.

1. Checkout the trunk
2. mvn install
3. mvn -Ptools geronimo:start

Geronimo started and I see activemq.xml file is not copied in var/activemq/conf folder. Web console also do not provide any editing support. In fact there is no edit link there on running ActiveMQ.

I looked into the pom.xm and generated geronimo-plugin.xml and they do have the plugin-artifact as you mentioned in your mail.

Further I installed the created binary distribution (in ~/.m2/repository/org/apache/geronimo/assemblies folder) to a separate folder and checked the geronimo-plugin.xml file in ${geronimo.home}/repository/org/apache/geronimo/configs/activemq-broker/2.2-SNAPSHOT/activemq-broker-2.2-SNAPSHOT.car/META-INF folder and I did not find the two plugin-artifact lines to copy the activemq configuration.

Did I miss something?

Regards,

Raj

In 2.2 we are using the "native" xbean-spring xml file to configure the activemq broker.  By default it's installed into var/activemq/conf/activemq.xml by this info in the pom.xml/geronimo-plugin.xml:

                        <plugin-artifact>
                            <copy-file relative-to="server" dest-dir="var/activemq/conf">activemq.xml</copy-file>
                            <copy-file relative-to="server" dest-dir="var/activemq/template">activemq-template.xml</copy-file>
                        </plugin-artifact>

There's also some admin console support for editing this file which I think uses the activemq-template file which is also installed.

In any case if you want to deal with editing this file individually on every server you can just change it in place or if you want a more reproducible process you could copy the activemq-broker maven project and build a plugin with your own plan.  Use an artifact-alias entry to make your plugin replace ours.

hope this answers your question
