    Allow for configuring default resource adaptor name for the EJB2 MDBs

    Alexey Loubyansky Master

      https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBAS-7911

       

      HornetQ team wants to be able to set the default resource adapter deployment name for all the proxy-factories configured in (standard)jboss.xml under invoker-proxy-bindings.

       

      Currently, the default resource adapter name is hardcoded in http://anonsvn.jboss.org/repos/jbossas/trunk/server/src/main/java/org/jboss/ejb/plugins/inflow/JBossJMSMessageEndpointFactory.java

      /** The JBoss resource adapter deployment name */
      protected static String jmsra = "jms-ra.rar";

       

      and can be overriden on the MDB level.

       

      One option would be to add an element (e.g. resource-adapter-name) to proxy-factory-config to be able to set the default RA name on the proxy factory. The problem with this it will require changes in the DTD, i.e. a new version of the DTD will have to be added to the metadata project (we can't modify released DTD versions). It would be fine for JBoss-6.x but we'll have to make it work in JBoss-5.x as well (EAP).

       

      Actually, AFAIU, HornetQ team wants to set the default RA name not only on the proxy-factory level but for all the proxy-factories.

      If we consider adding another XML element then we'll get the same problem with the DTD described above.

       

      I propose to initialize jmsra above from a system property with "jms-ra.rar" being the default in case the system property hasn't been set. This way we avoid the DTD issue.
