    Starting/Stopping MDB via JMX

    Paul Baker Apprentice

      First I know that the questions below has been asked many times. I have seen several posts where the replies say: "Search for the Answer". I have searched and I can't find it...

      I have a queue and a listener. The listener is configured as an MDB. I want to be able to:

      o Start/Stop the Queue via JMX
      o Start/Stop the Queue progrmatically

      I cannot find an answer for either. First the JMX issue

      JBoss: Jboss-5.0.0 GA
      JDK: jdk1.6.0_10

      Below is the code for my MDB:

      import javax.ejb.ActivationConfigProperty;
      import javax.ejb.MessageDriven;
      import javax.jms.JMSException;
      import javax.jms.Message;
      import javax.jms.MessageListener;
      import javax.jms.TextMessage;
      @MessageDriven(mappedName = "jms/SSMListener", activationConfig = {
       @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName="messagingType", propertyValue="javax.jms.MessageListener"),
       @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName = "acknowledgeMode", propertyValue = "Auto-acknowledge"),
       @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName = "destinationType", propertyValue = "javax.jms.Queue"),
       @ActivationConfigProperty(propertyName="destination",propertyValue="queue/SSMQueue") })
      public class SSMListener implements MessageListener {
       public void onMessage(Message arg0) {
       // TODO Auto-generated method stub
       TextMessage tm = (TextMessage) arg0;
       try {
       System.out.println("I'm alive - " + tm.getText());
       } catch (JMSException e) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block


      <mbean code="org.jboss.mq.server.jmx.Queue"
       <depends optional-attribute-name="DestinationManager">jboss.mq:service=DestinationManager</depends>

      Here is are two snapshots of my JMX console.


      I don't see any JMX controls for startDelivery or stopDelivery.
      o What am I doing wrong here?
      o Do I need to configure the MDB as an mbean?

      Remember - beginner...

      For start/stoping programatically I have the following code:
      ObjectName objectName;
       try {
       objectName = new ObjectName(
       "jboss.j2ee:binding=message-driven-bean, jndiName=jms/SSMListener, plugin=invoker,service=EJB");
       MBeanServer server = MBeanServerLocator.locateJBoss();
       server.invoke(objectName, "stopDelivery", new Object[] {}, null);
       } catch (MalformedObjectNameException e1) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block
       } catch (NullPointerException e1) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block
       } catch (InstanceNotFoundException e) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block
       } catch (MBeanException e) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block
       } catch (ReflectionException e) {
       // TODO Auto-generated catch block

      This code generates exception:
      10:55:55,157 ERROR [STDERR] javax.management.InstanceNotFoundException: jboss.j2ee:binding=message-driven-bean, jndiName=jms/SSMListener, plugin=invoker,service=EJB is not registered.
      10:55:55,158 ERROR [STDERR] at org.jboss.mx.server.registry.BasicMBeanRegistry.get(BasicMBeanRegistry.java:529)
      10:55:55,158 ERROR [STDERR] at org.jboss.mx.server.MBeanServerImpl.invoke(MBeanServerImpl.java:662)
      10:55:55,158 ERROR [STDERR] at com.sita.wab.service.SsimService.startLoad(SsimService.java:65)
      10:55:55,158 ERROR [STDERR] at com.sita.wab.ejb.ssim.SsimEjbBean.startLoad(SsimEjbBean.java:32)

      I suspect once I get the JMX issue resolved the answer to this problem will be obvious.

      Other than the starting/stopping the queue, everything else works well.

      Please be cognizant that I have posted this on the "Beginners Corner" forum and I am not that familure with the details of JMX.

      Any help will be greatly appreciated.
