Connecting to remote JMS: name TopicConnectionFactory not bound

Dear all,

I'm trying to send messages from and to a remote JMS (activemq) (it is on localhost now for testing purposes). However, I keep getting error messages no matter how I try. The message is:

INFO: [LCDS] [INFO] JMS consumer for JMS destination 'java:comp/env/jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic
            ' is being removed from the JMS adapter due to the following error: Name TopicConnectionFactory
             is not bound in this Context

(more logging attached)

My tomcat/conf/server.xml looks as follows:

<Context>

    <WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>
    <Manager pathname=""/>


        <Resource name="jms/flex/TopicConnectionFactory" auth="Container" type="org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQConnectionFactory" description="JMS Connection Factory"
        factory="org.apache.activemq.jndi.JNDIReferenceFactory" brokerURL="tcp://localhost:61616" brokerName="LocalActiveMQBroker"/>
       
        <Resource name="jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic" auth="Container" type="org.apache.activemq.command.ActiveMQTopic" description="my topic"
        factory="org.apache.activemq.jndi.JNDIReferenceFactory" physicalName="APP.STOCK.MARKETDATA"/>
</Context>

My messaging config is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<service id="message-service"
    class="flex.messaging.services.MessageService">
    <adapters>
        <adapter-definition id="actionscript" class="flex.messaging.services.messaging.adapters.ActionScriptAdapter" default="true"/>
        <adapter-definition id="jms" class="flex.messaging.services.messaging.adapters.JMSAdapter"/>
       
    </adapters>

     <!-- .... another destination cut -->

    <destination id="chat-topic-jms">
    <properties>
        <jms>
            <destination-type>Topic</destination-type>
            <message-type>javax.jms.TextMessage</message-type>
            <connection-factory>java:comp/env/jms/flex/TopicConnectionFactory
            </connection-factory>
            <destination-jndi-name>java:comp/env/jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic
            </destination-jndi-name>
            <destination-name>APP.STOCK.MARKETDATA
            </destination-name>
            <delivery-mode>NON_PERSISTENT</delivery-mode>
            <message-priority>DEFAULT_PRIORITY</message-priority>
            <acknowledge-mode>AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE</acknowledge-mode>
            <transacted-sessions>false</transacted-sessions>
  <initial-context-environment>
       <property>
        <name>Context.PROVIDER_URL</name>
        <value>vm://localhost</value>

        </property>
      <property>
        <name>Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY</name>
        <!--<value>org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory</value> -->
        <value>org.apache.naming.java.javaURLContextFactory</value>
       
      </property>
      <property>
        <name>Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES</name>
        <value>java:org.apache.naming</value>
        </property>
    </initial-context-environment>

        </jms>
    </properties>
        <channels>
            <channel ref="my-rtmp"/>
        </channels>
<adapter ref="jms"/>
</destination>

</service>

I have tried removing the part about the initial context factory and using the activemq initital context factory.Further I have tried changing Context.Provider_URL to localhost:61616 and the brokerURL to vm:localhost without results.

Anyone ideas?

Best regards

Bas

Curiously enough, I've just been through something very similar!

I think you need to have a <resource-ref> for the topic and factory in your web.xml

Thanks Gregor,

My tomcat\webaps\lcds\WEB-INF\web.xml now contains:

        <resource-ref>
            <description>JMS Connection Factory</description>
            <res-ref-name>jms/flex/TopicConnectionFactory</res-ref-name>
            <res-type>org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQConnectionFactory</res-type>
            <res-auth>Container</res-auth>
            <res-sharing-scope>Shareable</res-sharing-scope>
        </resource-ref>
        <resource-ref>
            <description>Simple Topic</description>
            <res-ref-name>jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic</res-ref-name>
            <res-type>org.apache.activemq.command.ActiveMQTopic</res-type>
            <res-auth>Container</res-auth>
            <res-sharing-scope>Shareable</res-sharing-scope>
        </resource-ref>

The rest of my configuration is unchanged. This change to web.xml seems to have no effect at all 😞

Hope you or someone else has more ideas...

Best regards,

Bas

Racking my brains...

Initial Context Factory issues? What port is the JNDI registry available

on? Is that the right class for Tomcat? (Sorry, I've got mine connected

up to an OC4J instance, so mine looks a bit different, I use RMI for the

Initial Conext Factory)

Gk.

Hi Gregor,

I'm not entirely sure about the settings for tomcat. I can't find much information about that. However, when I change the jndi name for the connectionfactory in both context.xml and web.xml in

jms/flexzzz/TopicConnectionFactory

Then I get another error:

INFO: [LCDS] [INFO] JMS consumer for JMS destination 'java:comp/env/jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic
            ' is being removed from the JMS adapter due to the following error: Name flex is not bound in this Context

so my conclusion was that lcds is indeed looking in the jndi registry of tomcat. But I'm not a JNDI or tomcat guru so it might be that I'm missing something.

Thanks for all your efforts!

Best regards,

Bas

Okay, I have found the solution to this problem.

When I installed LCDS I originally selected the option to install LCDS with tomcat included. That seems to have caused the problem. Now I have selected the install web app option and I've installed it under tomcat myself. The issue is now solved. Here's my configuration:

In tomcat-5.5.28\conf\context.xml I have:

<Context>

    <!-- Default set of monitored resources -->
    <WatchedResource>WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>
   
    <!-- Uncomment this to disable session persistence across Tomcat restarts -->
    <!--
    <Manager pathname="" />
    -->
        <Resource name="jms/flex/TopicConnectionFactory" auth="Container" type="org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQConnectionFactory" description="JMS Connection Factory"
        factory="org.apache.activemq.jndi.JNDIReferenceFactory" brokerURL="tcp://localhost:61616" brokerName="LocalActiveMQBroker"/>
       
        <Resource name="jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic" auth="Container" type="org.apache.activemq.command.ActiveMQTopic" description="my topic"
        factory="org.apache.activemq.jndi.JNDIReferenceFactory" physicalName="APP.STOCK.MARKETDATA"/>
</Context>

In webapps\lcds\WEB-INF\flex\messaging-config.xml I have:

    <destination id="chat-topic-jms">
    <properties>
        <jms>
            <destination-type>Topic</destination-type>
            <message-type>javax.jms.TextMessage</message-type>
            <connection-factory>java:comp/env/jms/flex/TopicConnectionFactory
            </connection-factory>
            <destination-jndi-name>java:comp/env/jmz/topic/flex/simpletopic
            </destination-jndi-name>
            <destination-name>APP.STOCK.MARKETDATA
            </destination-name>
            <delivery-mode>NON_PERSISTENT</delivery-mode>
            <message-priority>DEFAULT_PRIORITY</message-priority>
            <acknowledge-mode>AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE</acknowledge-mode>
            <transacted-sessions>false</transacted-sessions>
  <initial-context-environment>
       <property>
        <name>Context.PROVIDER_URL</name>
        <value>vm://localhost</value>

        </property>
      <property>
        <name>Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY</name>
        <!-- <value>org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory</value> -->
        <value>org.apache.naming.java.javaURLContextFactory</value>
       
      </property>
      <property>
        <name>Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES</name>
        <value>org.apache.naming</value>
        </property>
    </initial-context-environment>

        </jms>
    </properties>
        <channels>
            <channel ref="my-rtmp"/>
         <!--   <channel ref="samples-amf-polling"/> -->
        </channels>
<adapter ref="jms"/>
</destination>

Hope this is of any help to anyone.

Best regards,

Bas
