Are you running it on the standard JBoss AS7 configuration?
You will have to enable messaging extension and configure it on the default configuration, standalone.xml
See standalone-full.xml for configuration sample, and this link:
Yes, I am using standalone-full.xml. With same configuration, when deploying the MDB in WAR file, it will get started. But when I deploy the MDB in EAR file, it does not get started at all, no exception being thrown as well. I am using JBOSS AS 7.1.1 final
Do you need me to provide more info on this ?
What is your EAR packaging structure and, if you have an application.xml, how is it referencing the (I suppose) EJB JAR containing the MDB's?
