Ejb3 MBeans External Configuration ?

Christian Leclerc Newbie

Hello guy's, im kind of new here so first of all I want to thank you for the any support that you will give to me.

Here is my question now, iv'e bean searching since 2 day's on and off ..


I am an Jboss as 6 guy's and now im migrate to Jboss as 7.

I've got a MBeans that is called




Here is the detail :


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE server PUBLIC "-//JBoss//DTD MBean Service 4.0//EN"



    <mbean code="org.jboss.naming.JNDIBindingServiceMgr" name="ca.s3s.identitygardens.config:service=identitygardens-config">

        <attribute name="BindingsConfig" serialDataType="jbxb">

            <jndi:bindings xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"


                xs:schemaLocation="urn:jboss:jndi-binding-service:1.0 resource:jndi-binding-service_1_0.xsd">

                <jndi:binding name="conf/x500Properties">

                    <java:properties xmlns:java="urn:jboss:java-properties"


                        xs:schemaLocation="urn:jboss:java-properties resource:java-properties_1_0.xsd">

                        <java:property><java:key>Item A</java:key> <java:value>value A</java:value></java:property>

                        <java:property><java:key>Item b</java:key><java:value>Value b</java:value></java:property>

                        <java:property><java:key>Item C</java:key><java:value>Value C</java:value></java:property>           









And in my ejb I inject the value with :


@Resource(mappedName = "conf/x500Properties")


Everything work's great and now I wonder how to do this in JBoss AS 7

It was very great because this way I was able to make the configuration out of my ear file.

The value is put in jndi at startup and the ejb go fetch this value by injection ..


I know that I can possibly put a string in JNDI this way :




But did I can make a complete properties file object on this way ?


Thanks for any reply.
