    queryObject (beginner ?) question

    Jens Breitenstein Newbie


      I am trying to query all mbeans existing in jboss. This fails with exception (see stack trace below) and the message 'wrong number of arguments'.
      The call m.queryNames(objQueryName, null) fails. I tried different Object names with no success. I found a sample but here queryNames only used one parameter but jBoss 3.0.0 requires two parameters so I simply added 'null' ?

      I pasted the code and exception below.

      Thanks in advance for your answer.

      javax.transaction.TransactionRolledbackException: wrong number of arguments; nested exception is:

          It appears you are using an EJB to query the MBeanServer for MBeans. That does not seem like a good way to do it. Why not do it directly. That is, ask the MBeanServer directly?

          import java.util.*;
          import javax.management.*;
          import javax.naming.*;
          import org.jboss.jmx.adaptor.rmi.*;
          import org.jboss.jmx.connector.*;
          import org.jboss.jmx.connector.rmi.RMIConnectorImpl;

          public class Client {

          public static void main (String[] args) throws Exception {
          try {
          // Set up jndi properties
          Properties props = new Properties();
          props.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory");
          props.put(Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES, "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces");
          props.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://localhost:1099");
          InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(props);
          System.out.println ("Got context");

          // Retrieve the RMI adaptor
          Object obj = ctx.lookup("jmx:<machine name here>:rmi");
          System.out.println ("Got RMI Adapter");

          // Wrap it in a connector
          RemoteMBeanServer server = new RMIConnectorImpl((RMIAdaptor)obj);

          // Print the EJB count
          System.out.println(server.queryMBeans(new ObjectName("jboss.j2ee:service=EJB,*"), null).size());
          catch (Exception ex) {

            Now it works ! Many thanks for your immediate help.


            Unfortunately I do not understand why the first approach did not work. I believe there may be a problem if the sun jmx jar files are additionally reachable in the classpath. I will check this out...
