    Adding web-console and JRMP invoker to the 'web' config in JBoss 5.0.1

    J J Newbie

      Hi All,

      I am trying to run the web-console on the 'web' configuration of JBoss 5.0.1. By default this is not available, so I am trying by adding the following:

      under JBOSS_HOME/server/web/deploy:

      1) Create new folder management

      2) Add the  web-console.war from 'default' configuration.

      3) Update conf/login-config.xml with relevant application policy.

       

      But on startup, this fails since it is missing dependency: pluginManager.

       

      So now I copy JBOSS_HOME/server/web/deploy/console-mgr.sar from 'default' configuration. Since the jboss-web.xml inside this service has the mbean defined for pluginManager.

       

      On start up, now I see more dependency errors since pluginManager has a dependency on the JRMP invoker. Any steps to add JRMP invoker in the 'web' configuration? or any other alternates available to make web-console work in 'web' configuration?

       

      Thanks.

          Are you really sure, you want the web-console to be available? Even though it's shipped in "default" and "all" configs, the webconsole is completely abandoned and has numerous bugs, from what I have read in the forums. Infact, it has been dropped in the recent version of JBoss AS.

           

          Why not use the admin-console instead?

            Hi Jaikiran,

            I have actually been trying to get all three consoles: jmx, web and admin running in the 'web' console.

            1) Will the Admin console provide everything that is part of the web-console (sorry, this is new stuff to me)

            2) To attach the admin-console in the 'web' config, I did the following:

                 add deploy>admin-console.war

            When I bring up the admin console, I don't see much information. I see only the machine name on the left panel, and the associated summary/metrics tabs on the right. All the information that should be displayed as a tree structure below the machine name on the left (JBoss applications, Resources) are missing.

            On my server logs, I keep seeing the following:

            10:27:51,880 ERROR [Contexts] could not discover transaction status
            10:27:52,411 ERROR [Contexts] could not discover transaction status
            10:27:52,538 ERROR [Contexts] could not discover transaction status
            10:27:53,241 ERROR [Contexts] could not discover transaction status
            10:27:54,766 ERROR [Contexts] could not discover transaction status

            I am not sure what else needs to be done to get the admin-console working properly for the 'web' config. Am I missing adding something?

             

            Thanks.
