    How to override providerAdapterJNDI in @MessageDriven bean? Naming alias?

    Phil Krasko Newbie

      JBoss 4.2.3GA


      I have an application that needs to connect to a remote JMS topic (another JBoss box).

      For the deployment of this application I have a *-ds.xml file to specify the remote JMS provider ("RemoteJmsProvider").

      The MDB is using annotations and I have specified one @ActivationConfigProperty that sets the "providerAdapterJNDI" to java:/RemoteJmsProvider.


      Everything works perfect as of now.


      The question is how do I reconfigure this when I deploy the application on the same JBoss instance that is hosting the topic that I need to connect to?  In this scenario a remote jms provider should no longer be required.


      I've attempted to create a naming alias to map the java:/RemoteJmsProvider to the local DefaultJmsProvider.  I'm not sure if this will work, but I've always ending up with a javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: RemoteJmsProvider not bound.


      Here is the naming alias I created in a *-service.xml file within my deploy directory:


      <mbean code="org.jboss.naming.NamingAlias"


          <attribute name="FromName">RemoteJmsProvider</attribute>

          <attribute name="ToName">DefaultJMSProvider</attribute>



      Is this a valid use of the naming alias? 

      Has anyone encountered similar issues?
