Other than this code being inside an MDB what has this got to do with messaging?
You also don't show any code, configuration or error message.
Enable trace logging for org.jboss.ejb.plugins, org.jboss.resource and org.jboss.tm
and examine the output in log/server.log
Once you know where it is failing post a more detailed analysis in the relevent
forum. Do not post here unless it relates to JMS.
You are absolutely right. I am kind of clueless to which forum my question should be posted to. I will try enabling the logging for those packages as you have recommended. Thanks for your quick response anyway. I appreciate it.
