Im using jboss5.1.0GA as an application server. While sending a JMS message to the queue in linux machine its throwing a warning as pasted below:

java SendJmsEvents
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.jnp.interfaces.TimedSocketFactory).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
Connection started
Sending an Event to the StateMachine Event=2
Connection stopped

My program SendJmsEvents is able to send text message to the queue but i need to resolve this warning. Please help me out.

Class file for reference :

import java.util.Properties;
import javax.jms.JMSException;
import javax.jms.Queue;
import javax.jms.QueueConnection;
import javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory;
import javax.jms.QueueSender;
import javax.jms.QueueSession;
import javax.jms.TextMessage;
import javax.naming.Context;
import javax.naming.InitialContext;
import javax.naming.NamingException;

public class SendJmsEvents {
QueueConnection conn;
QueueSession session;
Queue que;

public void setupConnection() throws JMSException, NamingException {
Properties properties = new Properties();
properties.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://");
InitialContext iniCtx = new InitialContext(properties);
QueueConnectionFactory qcf = (QueueConnectionFactory) iniCtx

que = (Queue) iniCtx.lookup("MyQueue");

conn = qcf.createQueueConnection();
session = conn.createQueueSession(false, QueueSession.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
System.out.println("Connection started");

public void stop() throws JMSException {
System.out.println("Connection stopped");

public void sendAnEventToQueue(String event) throws JMSException {
QueueSender send = session.createSender(que);
TextMessage tm = session.createTextMessage(event);
System.out.println("Sending an Event to the StateMachine Event="+event);

public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {
SendJmsEvents sm = new SendJmsEvents();

You are missing a (or log4j.xml) from the classpath.

I have already set jboss-log4j.xml to the classpath like below:
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:$JBOSS_HOME/server/default/conf/jboss-log4j.xml

Am still getting the same warning.

My jboss-log4j.xml configuration looks like this:

Here JMSAppender configuration is present only for Topic, but i am using Queue. Will this cause a problem? and if so please let me know how to configure JMSAppender for Queue.

Please be patient. Everyone on the JavaRanch is a volunteer, answering questions in their free time.
As for your problem, one does not specify file names on the classpath unless they are archives like zip or jar files (see our FAQ, HowToSetTheClasspath).
