    Configure resource adpater as module

    t.dot Newbie



      we're using Jboss 7.1.2 Final and deployed a resource-adapter by putting it in the deployments folder and using the config in the standalone.xml.


      My question is: Can we create a module for the resource adapter instead of a deployment?


      The only thing I found was this resolved issue: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-5768 but using <module>com.test.myadapter</module> instead of <archive>myadapter.rar</archive> doesn't work.


      Thanks for your help,

      Regards Thomas



      [edit] I just read that the issue described should be solved in 7.2.0.CR1, so if there's no other option I have to wait.

          Hi Dot


          Can you tell me how to configure resource adapter using using Jboss 7.1.2 Final and standalone.xml file (sample)

            Jesper, do you mean to say that resource adapters cannot be installed as modules, or that resource adapters should preferably be deployed as archives? If so, what is the advantage of using deployments? For JDBC drivers, modules are usually recommended over deployments - then why would this be different for resource adapters?


            Thomas, I managed to install the ActiveMQ resource adapter as a module on JBoss AS 7.2.0 as follows:


            Create directory modules/system/layers/base/org/apache/activemq/main/


            Unpack activemq-rar-5.7.0.rar in that directory (Compressed RARs do not work, as noted in AS7-5768.


            Add a file module.xml with the following contents:


            <module xmlns="urn:jboss:module:1.0" name="org.apache.activemq">
                <resource-root path="."/>

              What does your <resource-adapter> section look like?

                Oops, I forgot:

                        <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:resource-adapters:1.1">
                                <resource-adapter id="activemq">
                                    <module id="org.apache.activemq"/>
                                    <config-property name="UseInboundSession">
                                    <config-property name="ServerUrl">
                                        <connection-definition class-name="org.apache.activemq.ra.ActiveMQManagedConnectionFactory" jndi-name="java:jboss/exported/jms/ConnectionFactory" enabled="true" use-java-context="true" pool-name="ConnectionFactory"/>

                  I know that this is quite old discussion but I've wrote blog on how to achieve exactly this.
                  To deploy resource adapter as module.
