    Unable to lookup Infinispan cache in EJB

    Mylos Kathos Master

      Hi all,

      I'm trying to store some values in Infinispan cache from within an EJB 3.1 Singleton that is running on a clustered JBoss AS 7.1.1.

      In the PostConstruct of my EJB Singleton I have:


      @PostConstruct  public void start() {

        InitialContext ic = new InitialContext();

        CacheContainer cc = (CacheContainer) ic.lookup("java:jboss/infinispan/cluster");

        . . .


      However the following error is raised:

      16:52:30,678 ERROR [stderr] (MSC service thread 1-4) javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: infinispan/cluster -- service jboss.naming.context.java.jboss.infinispan.cluster


      I have correctly exported Infinispan dependencies in the JAR file

      Dependencies: org.infinispan export


      I have tried also with dependency injection:


        private org.infinispan.manager.CacheContainer container;


      But I still get the same error :-(

      I have tried it both on JBoss AS 7.1.1 and on EAP (trial) 6.0.1.

      Any help ???

          Hi Mylos,


          for getting Infinispan cache manager being injected you need to do the following:


          e.g. assume you have some container defined in your EAP or JBoss AS standalone-*.xml defined and you want to inject it. The important thing that should be done is - you need to define jndi-name attribute for that container so that you can get it later via injection.


          <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:infinispan:1.2" default-cache-container="cluster">


          <cache-container name="cluster" aliases="ha-partition" default-cache="default" jndi-name="java:jboss/infinispan/cluster">

                          <transport lock-timeout="60000"/>

                          <replicated-cache name="default" mode="SYNC" batching="true">

                              <locking isolation="REPEATABLE_READ"/>





          Then in your code, the following line will inject the cache manager properly.


            private org.infinispan.manager.CacheContainer container;


          Hope this will help.
