    .war + .esb

    Anil GVN Newbie

      Is it possible to have an application which is kind of both an ESB as well as a WEBAPP. For example, I want to have some .jsp pages inside my .esb, which means I need a WEB-INF/web.xml.

      Is there a way to do it?

      If not, here is my problem. I want a class to be initialized as soon as the ESB is deployed. Is there a way to do it? I thought of writing a startup servlet to do this. This sounds silly but I couldn't find a way to have a class which is initialized or whose constructor is called as soon as the .esb is deployed.

      Please help me ASAP

          Sure, we have a number of the quickstarts doing this. All you need to do is include the .war file into your .esb archive.

          There are a number of ways to achieve this but it really depends on *why* you need it. Can you tell us more about what you are trying to achieve?

            My goal is to get a list of destination deployed on JBossMessaging inside JBossESB based on which i'll make a list of destination to do WireTap using StaticRouting to my destined queue/topic. Since the destionations are dynamically created/destroyed, I am trying to make it a timertask.

            If I can get a class loaded as soon as my .esb is deployed, I can get this class manage a list of destinations, which updates the jboss-esb.xml internally
            [ howz this idea :) ]

            this enables the sniffed list of destinations be manageable dynamically by the sniffer application itself :D

              can somebody from JBoss reply to this post?

              I was told that there are many ways to achieve what I intend to: initializing class when .esb is deployed.

              How is this done?

                Sure, care to give us the opportunity to? This is a forum and, as such, receives our attention on a 'best-effort' basis. Sometimes it will take a few days for us to reply as we are very busy. Your last response was only posted on Friday.

                    If you want to base it on a timer then look at the scheduled_services quickstart.

                    You cannot modify the jboss-esb.xml dynamically but you can certainly create an action similar to the ContentBasedRouter and handle this yourself.

                      you should have waited a bit longer then, shouldn't you.

                      This is not the best way to obtain *free* support!
