I'm hoping to extend the edu.emory.mathcs.backport.java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor to override the beforeExecute and/or afterExecute methods (to ensure that the log4j NDC threadLocal is reinitialized) within a JBoss (4.2.2) environment. While extending the class is easy, I'm hoping that someone can shed a little light regarding just how to "tell" JBoss to use my implementation. I unfortunately came up empty in my search of the JBoss forums.
The general jboss jboss dev list is jboss-development at https://lists.jboss.org/mailman/listinfo.
But I wouldn't make that suggestion, unless you have a very good point. What you suggest seems pointless to me.
But even if you have a point, good luck with politics convincing a croud of developers about your implementation.
