MDB -Problems Recieving Messages

Vijay G Newbie

I have a Simple MDB which logs the message from a queue. When i deploy the bean, it looks like its ignoring the destination i have given and it creates a temporary queue and listens for messages from the queue.

public class AFMessageProcessorBean implements MessageDrivenBean, MessageListener{
 private final static Logger log = Logger.getLogger("com.vfa.assetfusion.queue.AFMessageProcessor");
 private MessageDrivenContext ctx = null;

 public void setMessageDrivenContext(MessageDrivenContext ctx){
 this.ctx = ctx;

 public void ejbCreate(){
 public void ejbRemove(){
 this.ctx = null;

 public void onMessage(Message msg){
 TextMessage tm = (TextMessage) msg;
 String text = tm.getText();
 log.debug("I am from the MDB");
 catch(JMSException e){
 log.error("onMessage error", e);

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE ejb-jar
 PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Enterprise JavaBeans 2.0//EN"
 <message-selector>MessageFormat = 'Version 3.4'</message-selector>

    Jboss creates a temporary destination only if the queue does not exist at the time the MDB is deployed. Are you sure queue/test is created first? In which file are you declaring it?

    Also, you can add a depends tag in your jboss.xml to depend on the Queue's MBean.

    I modified jboss-destinations-service.xml to add my queue. Here is log.
    Take look at the timestamp. The queue gets deployed before the bean. But still it looks for the wrong destination and throwing an exception

    Fixed it. jboss.xml was not in the right format.
    It was missing the jboss tag at the start
    Thanks everyone for your replies
