Hi guys,
I'm deploing my webapp on JBoss. I want to externalise some data without modifying the war.
The same war is deployed on different JBoss. But the application is pointing to an external service. The url of the service change any time.

I think to do it with JNDI (https://community.jboss.org/wiki/JNDIBindingServiceMgr)
The problem is that when i create my xyz-service.xml the resource was not found.

Can any one suggest the best way to to this with or without JNDI ?
Thanks !!!

Which version of JBoss AS? What does your configuration look like? What errors do you get when you try that configuration?

Hi Jaikiran,

I m using the Version 4.2.1 of JBoss.
The resource is not found. I just add my xyz-service.xml in the deploy directory. I'm having the following exception:
javax.naming.CommunicationException: Receive timed out [Root exception is java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Receive timed out]


Thanks

I think the problem is that my Naming server is not found.
Addind a JNDI provider it work. Is there any of resolving it without modifying the conf/jndi.properties ?

Thanks !!!
