    JBOSS EAP 7.0.1 and a RAR to an external Q Broker

    Fred Welland Newbie

      I have a war that has being working just fine under EAP 6.4.x  (x currently 8, but also under 6 and 4 and so on down to 6.4.0).   


      The WAR has some simple JMS client features to adding a message to a queue on a remote machine.      The target QBroker is ActiveMQ  5.8.0.   


      I use the 5.8.0 RAR to set up an adapter/connector to the remote broker and then just normal JMS client stuff to push a message into a q.    All is fine with this.


      Beginning the "port" from 6.4.x to 7.0.1; and I am hung up on the amq 5.8.0 RAR stuff.     For starters -- not going to use any of the AMQ Artemis stuff that part of EAP 7 (yet).   Initially I want to get my WAR working under 7.0 with as few changes as possible -- so leaving RAR in place is important.


      Under 6.4.0, I use the standalone profile and just deploy the RAR via CLI kinda like this:


      ./jboss-cli.sh --connect -c "deploy --name=${AMQ_DEPLOY_NAME} --runtime-name=${AMQ_RAR_FNAME} ${_TMPDIR}/${AMQ_RAR_FNAME}"


      I then use cli to set up resource adapter, connection def/factory and admin-object for the queue.  


      Following the same process with EAP 7.0.1, if I use the standalone profile I get


      java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/jms/JMSException


      issues.    Ok so when I used standalone-full I get all sorts of variations of this sort of error:


      2016-07-18 15:48:10,867 ERROR [org.jboss.as.controller.management-operation] (Controller Boot Thread) WFLYCTL0013: Operation ("add") failed - address: ([

          ("subsystem" => "messaging-activemq"),

          ("server" => "default")

      ]) - failure description: {

          "WFLYCTL0180: Services with missing/unavailable dependencies" => ["jboss.messaging-activemq.default is missing [jboss.http-upgrade-registry.default]"],

          "WFLYCTL0288: One or more services were unable to start due to one or more indirect dependencies not being available." => {

              "Services that were unable to start:" => ["jboss.messaging-activemq.default.jms.manager"],

              "Services that may be the cause:" => [







      The above messages suggest something is wrong with the messaging-activemq stuff (the built in artemis stuff).  


      In both cases, I do set my EJB default resource adapter to the RAR created above.  


      So what am I missing on this set up?     



      Some particulars about my Environment:


      War doesn't have any jboss/wildfly specific DDs in it.

      I do not have the AMQ RAR deployed as a static module (nor do I want to)  -- it is just a jar I have deployed - like other JAR (for DB drivers) or WARS, EJB jars, etc.
