    HelloMDB Example not working

    sean Newbie


      I am trying to get the simple Hello message driven Bean example to work but it does not seem to be receiving the messages. I am using JBOSS 3.0.4 and running on Windows 2000. I do not use Windows Explorer to move the file but I use the cmd prompt window. I use HelloSender in the example directory to send messages. And I've checked that the messages are written and received correctly because I have used HelloReceiver to receive the messages successfully.

      1. Can someone tell me why the HelloMDB is not receiving messages?

      2. How can you tell if the message driven bean is deployed correctly and bound to the correct queue? Is it by using http://localhost:8080/jmx-console and looking in the JNDI view list?

      3. Is there a graphical interface to see the actual messages in the queue?

      In my example I am sending messages to the queue/testQueue.

      I have checked the queue name is correct in the jboss.xml and it matches the HelloSender code.
      I have also tried to using resource-ref tag in the ejb-jar.xml and resource-ref tag in the jboss.xml file.
      I have also checked the transacted type is false.

      According to the server.log, it has successfully deployed
      13:30:14,808 INFO [MainDeployer] Starting deployment of package: file:/C:/jboss
      13:30:14,839 INFO [MainDeployer] Deployed package: file:/C:/jboss/jboss-3.0.4/s

      My mdbhello.jar consists of 4 files
      E:\client_mdb\classes>jar tvf mdbhello.jar
