Haven't used the remove notifications in RMIAdaptor, there will be a replacement with 4.0. In the meanwhile if you cannot get the adaptor to work you might consider just registering an MBean instance locally and register that to listen to your notifications and handle the callbacks to the remote node yourself.
Thanks. I've concluded that what the RMIAdaptor does is very dummly register the notification listener assuming that the listener will be on the target host rather than wherever the RMIAdaptor client is.
Thanks for the suggestion - this is sort of what the connector code does but it's not clear how to configure and use it - looks like experimental code. I've worked around the issue for now, but would be interested in intercepting where 4.0 is headed - how can I track that?
JBoss 4.0 connectors will be based on the new jboss-remoting package. The JBossMX 1.1.2 release includes an early version of the new connectors.
