    Message Driven Bean in JBoss

    koltar Newbie

      I have gotten the template stuff working but now I am attempting to make a Hello World Message Driven Bean and I can not find any good documentation on how to do this in JBoss 3.0.4.

      Writing the code for the message driven bean is trivial but setting up JBoss is a task. Is there anyone who has a good hello world example that states what I need to put in the xml files and what xml files are to be touched in Jboss 3.0.4? I took a look at the example in the old online-manual but the xml files names are different and it does not tell you where these newly created xml files need to go.

      I've made a brief attempt at it and currently its telling the JNDI name is not bound. I know it has to do with all of these different xml files that need to be created and edited but I can not find an example that works with 3.0.4.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

          I'm trying to make a this client code work from a JSP. The code goes through without throwing an exception I was able to fix the ConnectionFactory error but using ConnectionFactory and added loginAuditQueue to the jbossmq-destination.xml.

          The code runs through without an error but I am not abel to get a System.out.println or logging to file. It is as if the Message Driven Bean I created is not listening to the Queue and the onMessage is not getting called. I'm not sure what piece I am missing.

          Any help would be apprciated greatly!

          JSP Code that runs without error

          Context context = new InitialContext();
          QueueConnectionFactory queueFactory = (QueueConnectionFactory)context.lookup("ConnectionFactory");
          QueueConnection queueConnection = queueFactory.createQueueConnection();
          QueueSession queueSession = queueConnection.createQueueSession(false, Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
          Queue queue = (Queue)context.lookup("queue/loginAuditQueue");
          QueueSender queueSender = queueSession.createSender(queue);
          ObjectMessage message = queueSession.createObjectMessage();
          message.setObject("Login: TESTING");
          queueSender.send(queue, message);

            I have found part of the problem looking through the build from ant it is only showing the template test entries in the message-driven bean tags. Where is the ant script writing the META-INF xml files from? I can not seem to find them in the source. How do I get the ant script to accept my new files. The above code shows the xdoclet changes I made but when I build nothing new is coming in the build. I even edited the entry pointing to test/message/** to mytest/message/**.

            Any suggestions? If someone knows about some good documentation that would be cool. Everything is bits and pieces with no complete reference.

              Anyone ever successfully implemented MDB on JBoss that was not the template? If so what should I use for a resource I'm still stuck...

                  2nd Message, I thought that sent the message with the line: queueSender.send(queue, message); Tells what que it goes in and what message to send? Is that not correct?
