hi there,
I am test MDB using WSAD and so far I have put the QueueFactory and Queue etc in the server, deploy the bean and server runs fine on localhost.
Then I put this code as my client, There is one line here test the class type I got back from JNDI lookup and the type is javax.naming.Reference
Then, I cut&paste the same logic put in struts.war logonAction.java and deploy war in my test EAR file, deploy on WAS5.0 Test server, now it runs, I see the message published and this time, class type I got back from JNDI lookup is class com.ibm.ejs.jms.JMSQueueConnectionFactoryHandle
Well, I spent couple hrs to figure out how to run JMS client as a stand alone application, and finally, still, cannt beat it
I attached my test client here, anyone on this board have been able to successfully run a standalone JMS client and using Websphere, please shed some light. Realy appreciate it.

Place your code in a J2EE application Client JAR file inside your EAR file. Run the client using the launchClient tool. That shoudl solve the problem.

The application client container has been a standard since J2EE 1.2 as far as I know.
The four containers per the spec are (in no particular order):
  • Application Client Container
  • Applet Container
  • Web Component Container
  • Enterprise Bean Container

  • Hope this helps.

    HI Kyle,

    I have configured the listener port for my p2p MDB using AdminConsole

    while restarting the server i'm getting follwing errors

    Unable to lookup JMS resources, JNDI lookup exception: com.ibm.ejs.jms.JMSQueueConnectionFactoryHandle
    Unable to start MDB Listener Message, JMSDestination QCF : java.lang.ClassCastException: com.ibm.ejs.jms.JMSQueueConnectionFactoryHandle

    Failed to start MDB Message against listener port MessageListener

    and while running the application I'm getting the following exception

    javax.jms.JMSException: MQJMS2005: failed to create MQQueueManager for 'localhost:WAS_localhost_server1'
    at com.ibm.mq.jms.services.ConfigEnvironment.newException(ConfigEnvironment.java:556)
    at com.ibm.mq.jms.MQConnection.createQM(MQConnection.java:1736)
    at com.ibm.mq.jms.MQConnection.createQMNonXA(MQConnection.java:1129)
    at com.ibm.mq.jms.MQQueueConnection.<init>(MQQueueConnection.java:170)

    I haven't installed MQ series separatly.

    I'm running the application from WSAD .

    Can you please assit me to solve the problem

    I had this problem initially when I tried to test an MDB. I am also testing the MDB within WSAD, and have not installed MQ-Series separately. After I got this error, I did some trial & error and it finally clicked when I set the "JMS Provider" to 'Embedded messaging'. Open the server configuration, go to the 'JMS' tab --> server settings --> JMS Provider section. You will find 3 radio buttons here, by default, the selection is: Disable. Set it to 'Embedded Messaging'.
    And since you already know how to configure a listener port and attach it to your MDB, there is nothing more for me to explain on that
    Hopefully, it should work now.
    Why am I so drawn to cherry pie? I can't seem to stop. Save me tiny ad!
