Resin, ActiveMQ and JCA

ActiveMQ can be configured in Resin using ActiveMQ's JCA adapter. The .rar file is in apache-activemq-5.0.0/lib/options/activemq-rar-5.0.0.rar

In the resin.conf, you'll need to add a <resource-deploy> tag to tell Resin where to look for resources:

  <resin xmlns="">
    <cluster id="">
        <host id="">
           <resource-deploy path="deploy"/>

Then, in your resin-web.xml, you'll need to configure the connector. It will look like:

  <web-app xmlns="">
     <resource-adapter uri="activemq:">
        <init server-url="vm://localhost"/>

     <connection-factory uri="activemq:" name="activemq"/>
     <jms-queue uri="activemq:" name="test">
         <init physical-name="queue.test"/>
  • The <resource-adapter> configures a JCA resource-adapter.
  • The uri="activemq:" is an alias for class="org.apache.activemq.ra.ActiveMQResourceAdapter" (contained in resin-support.jar)
  • The <init> block configures the resource adapter parameters.
  • The <connection-factory> configures the outbound factory
  • The <bean> configures the Queue (i.e. the adminobject)

    Connection conn = _factory.createConnection();
    Session session = conn.createSession(false, Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
    session.send(_queue, session.createTextMessage("test"));
