    NullPointerException deploying MDB with dependency

    Joseph Miller Newbie

      Hi, not sure which forum area to put this in, but hopefully someone will be able to tell me what's going on here

      I have an MDB listening on a JMS queue. In order to prevent the MDB trying to run on messages in the queue before other application resources are available (e.g. hibernate, other application start up routines) I have my app "start up servlet" create a JMX MBean when it has finished it's work, and I have the MDB deployment 'depend' on the existence of this MBean.

      When the application is deployed, I get a NullPointerException when JBoss tries to deploy the MDB (which seems to be correctly waiting for the MBean to appear first):

      11:39:04,564 INFO [EARDeployer] Init J2EE application: file:/usr/java/jboss-4.0.2/server/spl/farm/0-narthexapp.ear

      <<< removed a lot of application specific output >>>
