    Cannot persist xmbean

    tosca acosot Newbie

      Hello!
      I used the persistent-service.sar example, made it into a non service jar and deployed it.

      I'm able to access the bean from the jmx console, get and set properties, but it is never persisted. Why would that be?

      the only changes I made are:

      Put this at the beginning of the class
      @Service (objectName="jboss.jmx:service=PersistentServiceExample", xmbean="resource:ps-xmbean.xml")

      Created ps-xmbean.xml, modified it to confirm to xmbean schema.

      Only persistence doesn't work. Any pointer on how to debug would be greatly appreciated.
      modified jboss-service.xml (ps-xmbean.xml)

       <!-- Inline xmbean descriptor
      
       This is a normal XMBean descriptor, the only different being the
       specification of the DelegatingPersistenceManager as a persistence-manager.
      
       This persistence manager will invoke a factory operations
       (by default apmCreate()) on an external MBean service
       (by default jboss:service=AttributePersistenceService),
       in order to get a reference to an AttributePersistenceManager
       implementation.
      
       The actual AttributePersistenceManager implementation is instantiated
       by the AttributePersistenceService and shared by many
       DelegatingPersistenceManagers. By default an XMLAttributePersistenceManager
       is instantiated, but other implementations are possible.
      
       The external AttributePersistenceService can be use to manage at runtime
       the AttributePersistenceManager implementation, i.e. list persisted ids,
       remove persisted images, or specify a particular 'version-tag' for all
       saved information.
      
       It is important that the external AttributePersistenceService is
       operational when the XMBean that uses it is instantiated. This will
       normally not be a problem since the AttributePersistenceService is most
       probably started by conf/jboss-service.xml
