    Problem with transaction server port allocation config in jbossts-properties.xml (5.1.0.GA)




      We are using JBoss 5.1.0.GA for deploying our application on the mainframe environment.


      The problem is that in a secure environment, we need to control the port assignment for the transaction service - so we went ahead and changed the value of the property "com.arjuna.ats.internal.arjuna.utils.SocketProcessIdPort" to a port number of our choice (from the default value of "0").



                  name="com.arjuna.ats.internal.arjuna.utils.SocketProcessIdPort" value="0"/>


                                              changed to



                  name="com.arjuna.ats.internal.arjuna.utils.SocketProcessIdPort" value="28084"/>



      (in the jbossts-properties.xml file).


      Unfortunately, even after changing this value, the port number which was being assigned is a random one only. We also verified that port 28084 is free, and was ready to be assigned/used.


      Can someone help us out on this - by explaning why does changing the property value in the jbossts-properties.xml doesnt have any effect on the random port assignment?


      Thanks & Regards,
