    JbossESB Server + RCP Client

    Pekka Rantanen Newbie

      Hi everybody!
      We have a big problem here. Our task is to create a "thin" client based on Eclipse RCP. The problem is that when we attach all the needed libraries from JBoss - to avoid the numerous "ClassNotFoundException", and try to lauch the process, nothing happens. That is, a message is sent according to the JBoss console, but nothing is received on the client, more, the client simply freezes.

      The server-side code works both for console and Swing applications. Any help will be appreciated.

          could you post the client code that is doing the sending and receiving?

             long lastms = System.currentTimeMillis() + 60 * 1000;
             try {
             while ( ( !responseReceived ) && ( lastms > System.currentTimeMillis() ) ) {

             public void onMessage(javax.jms.Message receivedMessage) {
             try {
             TextMessage msg = (TextMessage) receivedMessage;
             parseXML( msg.getText() ); //parsing XML to receive
             responseReceived = true;
             } catch (Exception e) {

            There it goes. The method getAllStocks() is invoked outside of the code. I omitted some methods that are of no relevance to the functionality.

              You are just doing standard JMS here so it's not really an ESB issue.

              Can you get a thread dump when the freeze occurs?

                  It looks like there is an issue at the JBM/JBR layer, could you please make sure that you have the correct version of the messaging/remoting jars in your client classpath?

                  Which version of the ESB are you using?

                    I'm using the latest version, i. e. 4.2.1GA. JARs in the classpath are from JBoss directories, that is, from its lib/, client/ and server/default/lib/ paths. I tried to do without the whole bunch of these libraries by connecting only jboss-rosetta and jbossall-client - it was enough to compile, but then ClassNotFoundExceptions appeared. It was a tedious task to look where the missing class might be, so, long story short, I added all available libraries to the classpath. Exceptions disappeared - to no avail.

                      Well, the latest version is 4.3GA but I would suspect that jbossall-client.jar is the issue. Can you make sure that that your jboss-remoting.jar precedes this in your classpath? Does this fix the issue?

                        Sorry for not answering so long. Well, your advice was really important because the point was the order of libraries on the class path. The message from the server arrives, now I have to dig it why my Eclipse application doesn't find the proper activator. =)

                        Thank you very much, Kevin!
