    Unsupported protocol: remoting-jmx!!



      I deployed my application under jboss 7.1 but I have a problem with  remoting-jmx


      private static javax.management.MBeanServerConnection  repository=null;


      private static void init() throws IOException




                                    final ConnectorFactory factory = new ConnectorFactory(CartSettings.getInstance());



                                              final ConnectorJMXIdentification jmxIdentification = factory.createConnectorJMXIdentification();



                                    } catch (ConnectorFactoryException e) {




                            String host = "localhost";

                            int port = 9999;  // management-native port

                            String urlString =

                                System.getProperty("jmx.service.url","service:jmx:remoting-jmx://" + host + ":" + port);

                            JMXServiceURL serviceURL = new JMXServiceURL(urlString);

                            JMXConnector jmxConnector = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(serviceURL, null);

                            repository = jmxConnector.getMBeanServerConnection();


                            //Invoke on the JBoss AS MBean server


                                  serverName = new javax.management.ObjectName("cic:type=CICObjectShare");


                                    final String tmp = CartSettings.getInstance().getProperty("sharedObjectsTimeout", "0");

                                    final int sharedObjectsTimeout = cic.CICTools.parseInt(tmp);

                                    if (sharedObjectsTimeout>0)

                                              cic.CICObjectShare.TIMEOUT = sharedObjectsTimeout;


                          } catch (MalformedObjectNameException e) {


                          } catch (NullPointerException e) {





      I have this error:


      17:01:11,345 ERROR [stderr] (http-- java.net.MalformedURLException: Unsupported protocol: remoting-jmx


      I need your help thanks

             Make sure that you set the jboss-client.jar in the classpath of the command prompt/terminal where you are trying to run thic JMX code.




          For UNIX Based Operating System:


          export PATH=/home/userone/jdk1.6.0_21/bin:$PATH
          export CLASSPATH=/home/userone/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/bin/client/jboss-client.jar:$CLASSPATH:.:
          For Windows Based Operating System
          set PATH=C:\jdk1.6.0_21\bin;%PATH%
          set CLASSPATH=c:\jboss-as-7.1.1.Final\bin\client\jboss-client.jar;%CLASSPATH%;.;



             Where ever you are running your code .... you should make sure that the "jboss-client.jar" is loaded and becomes available for your JMX code.



          NOTE:  if you are running your jmx code as part of a Web Application inside the JBoss AS7.1 then make sure that the jboss-client.jar   file is placed inside the "WEB-INF/lib"  directory of your Web Application.

            When running in JBoss you need to declare a dependency on this module and make sure import the services else you will get "

            Unsupported protocol: remoting-jmx"


            <module name="org.jboss.remoting3.remoting-jmx" services="import"/>

              I have the same error. The jboss version is 7.1.3.


              I'm using jboss like a client to get info from jmx in wowza media server.


              String host = "localhost";
              int port = 9999;  // management-native port
              String urlString = System.getProperty("jmx.service.url","service:jmx:remoting-jmx://" + host + ":" + port);
              JMXServiceURL foo = new JMXServiceURL(urlString);
              JMXConnector connector = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(foo, env);


              1) I'm created new module in the jboss with name jboss-client. Added this module into jboss-deployment-structure.xml


                   <module name="org.jboss.jboss-client" />


              2) Done all manipulations, which is described in this discussions.


              But the server keep on return the error "java.net.MalformedURLException: Unsupported protocol: remoting-jmx".


              What could I forget? Any idea?

                <module name="org.jboss.jboss-client" />   != <module name="org.jboss.remoting3.remoting-jmx" services="import"/>

                You should not be creating new modules and putting the jboss-client.jar in it if that is what you did, that is setup for possible class cast exceptions.

                services="import" is needed in the jboss-deployment-structure.xml to allow the client application to see the META-INF/services which is where it is told about the remoting-jmx protocol.

                If your org.jboss.jboss-client is depending on the org.jboss.remoting3.remoting-jmx , then your custom module would need <module name="org.jboss.remoting3.remoting-jmx" services="export"/> to reexport the services
