    NameNotFoundException in my servlet

    Daniel Kaplan Newbie

      I'm getting a namenotfoundexception when I"m trying to execute this line:

      Destination destination =
       (Queue) jndiContext.lookup("java:comp/env/queue/TestMessageQueue");

      I really don't understand why because when jboss starts up it says this:
      19:38:29,500 INFO [TestMessageQueue] setJNDIName Bound to JNDI name: queue/TestMessageQueue
      I've tried using java:comp/env/jms/queue/TestMessageQueue too, nothing works.

      This is my ejb-jar.xml

       <description>Just a Test</description>

      Am I giving enough information for someone to be able to help me with this problem?

            Go to JMX Console. Click on the link representing "JNDIView" and "list()" should list all the objects bound in JNDI. If your object is not bound, something wrong with config.

              If by object, you mean my MDB then yeah it shows up. Also it mentions the queue that i'm trying to look up. Here's the whole output:

              Can you make any sense of that (cause I can't). I'll also paste more of what my servlet is trying to do:

              Context jndiContext = new InitialContext();
               Destination destination =
               (Queue) jndiContext.lookup("java:comp/env/queue/TestMessageQueue");
               ConnectionFactory connectionFactory = (ConnectionFactory) jndiContext.lookup("java:comp/env/jms/ConnectionFactory");
               javax.jms.Connection connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();
               javax.jms.Session session = connection.createSession(false,
               MessageProducer messageProducer = session.createProducer(destination);
               TextMessage message = session.createTextMessage();
               for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) {
               message.setText("This is message " + (i + 1));
               System.out.println("Sending message: " +

              That connection factory is totally made up. I'm not sure what i'm supposed to use for that, but, again, the line that's causing the problem is the line that comes before it.

              Here's the stack trace when i go to the servlet:

              Is there any more information i can provide that would help?

                Looks like there may be an additional jndi.properties somewhere that is being used instead of the one you provided.

                Have you specified a jndi.properties file?

                  to tell you the truth i don't know. Another employee set this up and I'm not at work right now so I can't check. Would you mind explaining what led you to believe what you just said?

                    Give the following a shot

                    Destination destination =
                     (Queue) jndiContext.lookup("queue/TestMessageQueue");

                    On careful examination, seems like the queue is bound to the global namespace as the following log message explains:
                    19:38:29,500 INFO [TestMessageQueue] setJNDIName Bound to JNDI name: queue/TestMessageQueue

                      Alright, I promise to try that first thing in the morning. Thanks a lot for sticking with me through this whole thing. If it doesn't work I hope you won't give up on me :)

                      Just FYI, i do have two stateless session beans working right now with JBoss. The only way i could get them to work was if i put a tag into my web.xml file. I think the tag was something like <ejb-local-interface>...</ejb-local-interface> Without those tags i would get similar problems (I don't remember if they were exact problems).

                      Would a MDB need a similar type of tag in the web.xml? I've read a bunch of tutorials before i posted this question and none of them used examples where the web.xml had to be changed.
