    Include XA aware connection factory with EAR

    Alexander Hartner Expert

      I would like to bundle the definition of an XA aware connection factory with my applications EAR. I am already including the destination need by the MDBs using a abc-service.xml file. However I would like to create a xa-transaction aware connection factory similar to those defined in hajndi-jms-ds.xml. I tried included a separate xyz-services.xml file with the following content:

       

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

      <connection-factories>

        <!-- JMS XA Resource adapter, use this to get transacted JMS in beans -->

        <tx-connection-factory>

          <jndi-name>jms/CustomJMSConnectionFactory</jndi-name>

          <xa-transaction/>

          <rar-name>jms-ra.rar</rar-name>

          <track-connection-by-tx/>

          <connection-definition>org.jboss.resource.adapter.jms.JmsConnectionFactory</connection-definition>

          <config-property name="SessionDefaultType" type="java.lang.String">javax.jms.Topic</config-property>

          <config-property name="JmsProviderAdapterJNDI" type="java.lang.String">java:/DefaultJMSProvider</config-property>

          <max-pool-size>20</max-pool-size>

          <security-domain-and-application>JmsXARealm</security-domain-and-application>

          <use-java-context>false</use-java-context>

        </tx-connection-factory>

      </connection-factories>

       

      However this didn't work. I know that I could define a connection factory using the following in my abc-service.xml file which is included in my ear.

       

      <mbean code="org.jboss.jms.server.connectionfactory.ConnectionFactory"


            name="jboss.messaging.connectionfactory:service=MyConnectionFactory"

            xmbean-dd="xmdesc/ConnectionFactory-xmbean.xml">

            <depends optional-attribute-name="ServerPeer">

                       jboss.messaging:service=ServerPeer

            </depends>....

       

      however I am not sure if these will have the same transactional properties as those connection factories defined in hajndi-jms-ds.xml. Any information on the differences between the connection factories defined in hajndi-jms-ds.xml and those in jboss-messaging.sar/connection-factories-service.xml / abc-service.xml would help as well. Ideally I am looking for a method to define a connection factory with the same properties as JmsXA  and include that within my EAR file.

       

      Thanks in advance
