Subject RE: [jcr-rmi] How to configure for RMI-Lookup
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2007 07:24:26 GMT
Hello Markus,

To expose JR via RMI you need a RMI jar for JR:
jackrabbit-jcr-rmi-1.3.jar (we're using JR 1.3, so the name may be
different). You just copy it into the server/default/deploy/ folder of

And that exposes a RemoteRepository. I guess you can change the

Here's some code to try it:

        Credentials cred = new SimpleCredentials("user",
        RemoteSession session = null;

        Properties properties = new Properties();
        properties.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "localhost:1099");
        InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(properties);

        Object obj = ctx.lookup("jnp://localhost:1099/jcrServer");

        RemoteRepository repo = (RemoteRepository) obj;
        session = repo.login(cred);

Subject: [jcr-rmi] How to configure for RMI-Lookup


as far as I understand, the jcr-rmi server configuration registers the 
server/repository via JNDI

Some (unfortunately most) Jackrabbit/JCR clients (e.g.: 
http://www.day.com/eclipse/) however use classical RMI lookup 
((RemoteRepository)Naming.lookup("rmi://localhost:1099/jcrServer");) in 
order to get a handle to the remote repository, which results in a 
"non-JRMP server at remote endpoint" java.rmi.ConnectIOException, due to

the fact that there's no traditional RMI registry running on 1099, but 
rather a JNDI registry.

Is it possible to change the configuration (in 
jackrabbit-rmi-service.xml?) so that the server-side/remote repository 
gets bound to a traditional RMI registry and if yes what do I have to 

kind regards,

PS: I'm working with jackrabbit 1.3.1 and JBoss 4.0.5
