helloworld-mdb: Helloword Using an MDB (Message-Driven Bean)

Author: Serge Pagop

What is it?

This example demonstrates the use of JMS 1.1 and EJB 3.1 Message-Driven Bean in JBoss AS 7.1.0.

System requirements

All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or better, Maven 3.0 or better.

The application this project produces is designed to be run on a JBoss AS 7 or JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.

NOTE: This Project will use the already default configured connection factory named "InVmConnectionFactory" with the jndi "java:/ConnectionFactory" and a queue named "testQueue" with the jndi "queue/test". The artifacts will come from the JBoss Community Maven repository, a superset of the Maven central repository.

With the prerequisites out of the way, you're ready to build and deploy.

Deploying the application

Instructions for starting the server vary slightly depending upon whether you are using the community release (JBoss AS 7) or the platform release (JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6).

For JBoss AS 7:

On Linux run: $JBOSS_HOME/bin/ -c standalone-full.xml

On Windows run: $JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.bat -c standalone-full.xml

For JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6:

On Linux run: $JBOSS_HOME/bin/ 

On Windows run: $JBOSS_HOME/bin/standalone.bat

To deploy the application, you first need to produce the archive to deploy using the following Maven goal:

mvn package

You can now deploy the artifact to JBoss AS by executing the following command:

mvn jboss-as:deploy

This will deploy target/jboss-as-helloworld-mdb.war.

The application will be running at the following URL http://localhost:8080/jboss-as-helloworld-mdb/HelloWorldMDBServletClient.

Go to the JBoss Application Server console or Server log and the result can look like this:

15:42:35,453 INFO class Received Message: This is message 1 15:42:35,455 INFO class Received Message: This is message 2 15:42:35,457 INFO class Received Message: This is message 3 15:42:35,478 INFO class Received Message: This is message 5 15:42:35,481 INFO class Received Message: This is message 4

To undeploy from JBoss AS, run this command:

mvn jboss-as:undeploy

You can also start JBoss AS 7 and deploy the project using Eclipse. See the JBoss AS 7 Getting Started Developing Applications Guide for more information.
