    Best practice to avoid MDB

    reza g Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I need to write a simple message consumer (that receives a soap message and forwards it to a web service) and run it when HornetQ standalone starts up. I will have a cluster of standalone HornetQ servers, each having this simple forwarder.

       

      What is the best way of achiveing this when I want to have a permanent listener while avoiding MDBs?

       

      Thanks

          A good idea would be you writing a MC Bean

           

           

          public class MyBean

          {

              public void start()

              {

                     // instantiate factories (JNDI or direct instantiation),

                    // instantiate a session... etc

                    // setup a consumer  (Message listener)

              }

           

              public void stop()

              {

                         // close the connections, sessions.. etc

              }

          }

           

           

           

           

          Add it to the server's classpath

           

           

          And change hornetq-beans.xml to add your bean:

           

          <bean name="MyClient" class="my.package.MyClass/>

           

           

           

          You would be on the same VM as the Standalone server. You could even use InVM.

           

           

          You will probably need a dependency to the HornetQServer, so your bean doesn start before the HornetQServer.
