messaging-clustering: Messaging Example that Demonstrates Clustering

The messaging-clustering quickstart does not contain any code and instead uses the helloworld-mdb quickstart to demonstrate clustering using ActiveMQ Messaging.

What is it?

The messaging-clustering quickstart demonstrates the use of clustering with Apache ActiveMQ and {productNameFull}. It uses the helloworld-mdb quickstart for its tests, so there is no code associated with this quickstart. Instructions are provided to run the quickstart on either a standalone server or in a managed domain.

Prerequisites

Important
This quickstart depends on the deployment of the helloworld-mdb quickstart WAR for its tests. Before you continue, you must build the helloworld-mdb quickstart WAR.

Open a terminal and navigate to the root directory of the helloworld-mdb quickstart. Type this command to build the WAR archive:

$ mvn clean install

See the helloworld-mdb helloworld-mdb README file for further information about this quickstart.

Configure the Server and Deploy the Quickstart

You can choose to deploy and run this quickstart in a managed domain or on a standalone server. The sections below describe how to configure and start each type of server.

Before you begin:

  1. If it is running, stop the {productName} server.

  2. If you plan to test using a standalone server, back up the standalone server configuration file:

    {jbossHomeName}/standalone/configuration/standalone-full-ha.xml
  3. If you plan to test using a managed domain, back up the following files:

    {jbossHomeName}/domain/configuration/domain.xml
    {jbossHomeName}/domain/configuration/host.xml

After you have completed testing this quickstart, you can replace these files to restore the server to its original configuration.

Configure the Server and Deploy the Quickstart to a Managed Domain

You configure the server by running the install-domain.cli script provided in the root directory of this quickstart.

Configure the Domain Server and Deploy the Quickstart Using the JBoss CLI

  1. Review the install-domain.cli file in the root of this quickstart directory. This script creates the server group and servers and configures messaging clustering for testing this quickstart. You will note it does the following:

    • Stops the servers

    • Creates a server-group to test ActiveMQ Clustering

    • Adds 2 servers to the server-group

    • Configures ActiveMQ clustering in the full-ha profile

    • Deploys the helloworld-mdb.war archive

    • Restarts the servers.

      Note
      If your helloworld-mdb quickstart is not located at the same level in the file structure as this quickstart, you must modify its path in this script. Find the NOTE in the file for instructions.
  2. Open a terminal, navigate to the root directory of this quickstart, and run the following command to run the script:

    $ {jbossHomeName}/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --file=install-domain.cli
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}\bin\jboss-cli.bat script.

    You should see "outcome" ⇒ "success" for all of the commands.

  3. Restart the server in a managed domainas described above.

Configure the Server and Deploy the Quickstart to a Standalone Server

If you choose to run standalone servers instead of a managed domain, you will need two instances of the application server. Application server 2 must be started with a port offset parameter provided to the startup script as -Djboss.socket.binding.port-offset=100.

Since both application servers must be configured in the same way, you must configure the first server and then clone it.

Start the Standalone Server Using the Full HA Profile.

  1. Open a terminal and navigate to the root of the {productName} directory.

  2. Start the {productName} server with the standalone full HA profile, which supports messaging and high availability, by typing the following command.

    $ {jbossHomeName}/bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-full-ha.xml
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}\bin\standalone.bat script.

Configure the Standalone Server and Deploy the Quickstart Using the JBoss CLI

  1. Review the install-standalone.cli file in the root of this quickstart directory. This script configures clustering for a standalone server. You will note it does the following:

    • Enables console logging. By default, the full HA profile does not log to the console, so this script enables it.

    • Enables clustering and sets a cluster password

    • Enables clustering in the RemoteConnectionFactory

    • Deploys the helloworld-mdb.war archive

    • Reloads the server configuration

      Note
      If your helloworld-mdb quickstart is not located at the same level in the file structure as this quickstart, you must modify its path in this script. Find the NOTE in the file for instructions.
  2. Open a terminal, navigate to the root directory of this quickstart, and run the following command to run the script:

    $ {jbossHomeName}_1/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --file=install-standalone.cli
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}_1\bin\jboss-cli.bat script.

You should see "outcome" ⇒ "success" for all of the commands.

Clone the {productName} Directory

After you have successfully configured the server, you must make a copy of this {productName} directory structure to use for the second server.

  1. Stop the server.

  2. Make a copy of this {productName} directory structure to use for the second server.

  3. Remove the following directories from the cloned instance:

    {jbossHomeName}_2/standalone/data/activemq/bindings/
    {jbossHomeName}_2/standalone/data/activemq/journal/
    {jbossHomeName}_2/standalone/data/activemq/largemessages/

Start the {productName} Standalone Servers with the Full HA Profile

When you start the servers, you must pass the cluster password on the command line to avoid the warning AMQ222186: unable to authorise cluster control.

$ {jbossHomeName}_1/bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-full-ha.xml
$ {jbossHomeName}_2/bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-full-ha.xml -Djboss.socket.binding.port-offset=100
Note
For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}_1\bin\standalone.bat and {jbossHomeName}_2\bin\standalone.bat scripts.

Remove the Server Configuration

Remove the Domain Server Configuration

You can remove the domain configuration by manually restoring the back-up copies the configuration files or by running the JBoss CLI Script.

Remove the Domain Server Configuration Manually

Important
This method ensures the server is restored to its prior configuration.
  1. If it is running, stop the {productName} server.

  2. Restore the {jbossHomeName}/domain/configuration/domain.xml and {jbossHomeName}/domain/configuration/host.xml files with the back-up copies of the files. Make sure you replace {jbossHomeName} with the path to your server.

Remove the Domain Server Configuration by Running the JBoss CLI Script

Important
This script returns the server to the default configuration, which might not match the server configuration that existed prior to testing this quickstart. If you were not running with the default configuration before testing this quickstart, you should follow the intructions above to manually restore the domain configuration to its previous state.
  1. Start the {productName} server by typing the following:

    $ {jbossHomeName}/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --file=install-domain.cli
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}\bin\jboss-cli.bat script.
  2. Open a new terminal, navigate to the root directory of this quickstart, and run the following command, replacing {jbossHomeName} with the path to your server.

    $ {jbossHomeName}/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --file=remove-domain.cli
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}\bin\jboss-cli.bat script.

    This script removes the server configuration that was done by the install-domain.cli script. You should see the following result following the script commands.

    The batch executed successfully
Important

If the :stop-server command does not complete before the next commands are issued, you might see an error similar to the following:

{"JBAS014653: Composite operation failed and was rolled back. Steps that failed:" => {"Operation step-1" => "JBAS010977: Server (quickstart-messagingcluster-node1) still running"}}

Simply wait a few seconds and run the command a second time.

Remove the Standalone Server Configuration

You can remove the domain configuration by manually restoring the back-up copies the configuration files or by running the JBoss CLI Script.

Remove the Standalone Server Configuration Manually

Important
This method ensures the server is restored to its prior configuration.
  1. If they are running, stop both {productName} servers.

  2. Restore the {jbossHomeName}_1/standalone/configuration/standalone-full-ha.xml file with the back-up copies of the file. Make sure you replace {jbossHomeName}_1 with the path to your server.

Remove the Standalone Configuration by Running the JBoss CLI Script

Important
This script returns the server to the default configuration, which might not match the server configuration that existed prior to testing this quickstart. If you were not running with the default configuration before testing this quickstart, you should follow the intructions above to manually restore the standalone configuration to its previous state.
  1. Start the {productName} server by typing the following:

    $ {jbossHomeName}_1/bin/standalone.sh -c standalone-full-ha.xml
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}_1\bin\standalone.bat script.
  2. Open a new terminal, navigate to the root directory of this quickstart, and run the following command, replacing {jbossHomeName}_1 with the path to your server.

    $ {jbossHomeName}_1/bin/jboss-cli.sh --connect --file=remove-standalone.cli
    Note
    For Windows, use the {jbossHomeName}_1\bin\jboss-cli.bat script.

    This script removes the server configuration that was done by the install-standalone.cli script. You should see the following result following the script commands:
