    Unable to create connection to jUDDI registry

    Lisa Retief Newbie

      I am trying to establish a connection to the JBossWS (2.0.0) jUDDI registry from a standalone JVM client.

      First I tried, as per the samples, doing a:

      ConnectionFactory factory = ConnectionFactory.newInstance();

      to get the ConnectionFactory, but it told me that it could not create an instance of null.

      So, reading the docs for ConnectionFactory, it said I should rather do a JNDI lookup, which I now successfully do as follows:

      Context ctx = new InitialContext(jndiProps);
      ConnectionFactory factory = (ConnectionFactory) ctx.lookup("JAXR");

      I then set up all the properties as per docs and code:

      String queryurl = System.getProperty("jaxr.query.url", "http://localhost:8080/juddi/inquiry");
      String puburl = System.getProperty("jaxr.publish.url", "http://localhost:8080/juddi/publish");

      Properties props = new Properties();
      props.setProperty("javax.xml.registry.queryManagerURL", queryurl);
      props.setProperty("javax.xml.registry.lifeCycleManagerURL", puburl);

      String transportClass = System.getProperty("juddi.proxy.transportClass", "org.jboss.jaxr.juddi.transport.SaajTransport");
      System.setProperty("juddi.proxy.transportClass", transportClass);

      factory.setProperties(props);

      That all works.

      And now, the line that breaks it all:

      Connection connection = factory.createConnection();

      My exception:

      [junit] java.lang.NullPointerException
      [junit] at org.apache.juddi.proxy.RegistryProxy.getTransport(RegistryProxy.java:459)
      [junit] at org.apache.juddi.proxy.RegistryProxy.init(RegistryProxy.java:189)

      [junit] at org.apache.ws.scout.registry.ConnectionFactoryImpl.createConnection(ConnectionFactoryImpl.java:86)

      Any help much appreciated.
