Cannot reference a queue using Simple Java Client

I am trying to send messages from a plain java client to a JMS Queue using the Weblogic Workshop 8.1.

If I change the Connection Factory to weblogic.jms.ConnectionFactory or
weblogic.jws.jms.QueueConnectionFactory, I can get a value for factory in the lookup. Since they
are defaults. I can also get a (connection factory) if I add
java:comp/env/jms/QueueConnectionFactory to Admin Console

Yet the code still can't find the queue when these connection factories are used.

My queue in the Admin console is under CgJMSServer/Destinations, with name: of Synch Queue
JNDI NAme:SynchQueue

( I tried different parameters for looking up queue.)

Can someone recommend which connection factory to use and how I might configure it if necessary and
how the queue can be associated with the connection factory in the code and in the Admin Console.

I have seen examples to write to a queue from another bean using ebjgen tags, but I don't
know how to do the equivalent in a plain java client. It's also not
clear how this config is accomplished in the samples queue example,
which uses a simple java client.

Any assistance would be greatly apprecieated. Thank you!!

My code fragment is as follows:
//Function getinitialContext defined below
Context ic = getInitialContext("t3://localhost:7001", "weblogic", "weblogic");

factory = (QueueConnectionFactory) ic.lookup("java:comp/env/jms/QueueConnectionFactory");
queue = (Queue) ic.lookup("java:comp/env/jms/SynchQueue");

static Context getInitialContext(String url, String user, String password) {
InitialContext p =null;
Hashtable h = new Hashtable();
h.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, url);
//h.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, user);
// h.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, password);
return (new InitialContext(h));
catch(Throwable ex)
return p;
