    Error while sending JMS(message) with jboss AS 7 (7.1.0)

    chandrasachin16 Newbie

      Hi Community,


      I am in the process of migrating my old application on Jboss 5 to Jboss 7 (7.1.0). I am using JMS to send message on topic which I have configured in Jboss standalone-full.xml.


      I am using the following code  to create context where host is localhost and port is 4447 and user1 and user123 are application users which I have created in jboss.


      private void sendJmsEvent() {


              String factoryName = "jms/RemoteConnectionFactory";

              String topicName = "jms/topic/xMESTopicSystemEventMsg";


                InitialContext context=getInitialContext("localhost","4447");

                  TopicConnectionFactory factory = (TopicConnectionFactory) context.lookup(factoryName);

                  Topic topic = (Topic) context.lookup(topicName);


                  // Create JMS objects


                  TopicConnection connection = factory.createTopicConnection("user1","user123");

                  TopicSession topicSession = connection.createTopicSession(false, javax.jms.Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);

                  TopicPublisher publisher = topicSession.createPublisher(topic);

                  // Send messages

                  System.out.println("Enter message to send or 'quit' to quit");

                  String messageText = "stop";


                  TextMessage message = topicSession.createTextMessage(messageText);




      public static InitialContext getInitialContext(String host, String port) throws Exception {

              Properties props = new Properties();

              props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory");

              props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "remote://"+host+":"+port);

              props.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "user1");

              props.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "user123");


              props.put("jboss.naming.client.ejb.context", true);

              InitialContext initialContext = new InitialContext(props);

              return initialContext ;




      This code is a part of my application deployed in jboss(in the same JVM) but I get following error----------------

          You're creating the context incorrectly.  See this for an example of how to do a JNDI lookup for JMS resources from a remote client.

            Thanks Justin,


                   I will try with the above example.

              Hi Justin,


              Tried with the above link but still could not create the context.Here's my code below


              Properties props = new Properties();

                      props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY);

                      props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, System.getProperty(Context.PROVIDER_URL,PROVIDER_URL));

                      props.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, System.getProperty("username", DEFAULT_USERNAME));

                      props.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, System.getProperty("password", DEFAULT_PASSWORD));

                      log.info( " Host is not null - Getting context for: " + host + ":" + port);

                      InitialContext initialContext = new InitialContext(props);


              I get a null value in initialContext object



              I have declared class level variables


              private static final String DEFAULT_USERNAME = "user1";

              private static final String DEFAULT_PASSWORD = "user123";

              private static final String PROVIDER_URL = "remote://localhost:4447";

              private static final String INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY="org.jboss.naming.remote.client.InitialContextFactory";


              What is that I am missing?

                As you're sending a message to a topic that is set up in the same server instance, your code is much simpler than you think.


                Here is a sample EJB that sends a message to a javax.jms.Topic:





                public class Messenger {


                    @Resource(mappedName = "java:/JmsXA")

                    private ConnectionFactory connectionFactory;



                    @Resource(mappedName = "java:jboss/exported/jms/topic/test")

                    private Topic testTopic;



                    public Messenger() {




                    public void sendMessage(String message) {       

                        try {

                            Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();

                            try {

                                Session session = connection.createSession(true, 0);

                                MessageProducer producer = session.createProducer(testTopic);

                                Message jmsMessage = session.createObjectMessage(message);


                            } finally {



                        } catch (JMSException e) {

                            throw new EJBException("Failed to send JMS message", e);








                As it is an in-server call, the setup that you do is much simpler than from an external standalone application.

                  Hi Stephen ,


                            Yes I am sending message on a topic, and this code is a part of my application which is deployed in the same server instance as an ear. With HornetQ I am able to send message but with remote lookup not able to do it.

                    If it's in the same server instance it does not need to be remote...

                      Hi Stephen,


                      Tried with the solution suggested by you but gives me a null pointer while creating connection   [   Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection() ]


                      Here's my code some thing like this--


                          @Resource(mappedName = "java:/JmsXA")

                          private ConnectionFactory connectionFactory;


                          @Resource(mappedName = "java:jboss/exported/jms/topic/xMESTopicSystemEventMsg")

                          private Topic xMESTopicSystemEventMsg;



                          try {

                                     Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();

                                      Session session = connection.createSession(true, 0);

                                      MessageProducer producer =null;

                                      producer = session.createProducer(xMESTopicSystemEventMsg);   

                                      Message jmsMessage = session.createObjectMessage(message);


                      }catch(JMSException e){




                      I tried with Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection("user1","user123")  too  but didn't had any luck ( where user1 is my application user created)

                      What could be the possible cause?

                        Stephen Coy Master

                        This code needs to be in a container managed object of some sort, such as the EJB I used above or a web component like a servlet.


                        Otherwise @Resource annotated fields will not be injected for you.

                          Hi Stephen,


                          This code is a part of class file inside a jar file which is again inside an ear file. I modified my code something like given below and was able to successfully send message on my configured topic


                                      Context context=new InitialContext();

                                      ConnectionFactory connectionFactory = (ConnectionFactory) context.lookup("java:/JmsXA");    // used the pooled connection

                                      Destination destination = null;

                                      destination=(Destination) context.lookup("java:jboss/exported/jms/topic/xMESTopicSystemEventMsg");


                                      Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection("user1","user123");

                                      Session session = connection.createSession(false,Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);

                                      MessageProducer messageProducer = session.createProducer(destination);


                                      TextMessage message1 = session.createTextMessage();

                                      message1.setText("sending jms message------------------------");



                          So I think it works if I do it this way.
