 create-jmsdest - creates a physical destination


 create-jmsdest --user admin_user [--passwordfile filename] [--host host_name] [--port port_number] [--secure|-s] [--terse=false] [--echo=false] [--interactive=true] [--help] [--target target] --desttype dest_type [--property (name=value)[:name=value]*] dest_name


The create-jmsdest command creates a JMS physical destination. Along with the physical destination, you use the create-jms-resource command to create a JMS destination resource that has a Name property that specifies the physical destination. This command is supported in remote mode only.


-u --user

The authorized domain application server administrative username.

-w --password

The --password option is deprecated. Use --passwordfile instead.


This option replaces the -- password option. Using the --password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The --passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital letters. For example, to specify the domain application server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.

-H --host

The machine name where the domain application server is running. The default value is localhost.

-p --port

The port number of the domain application server listening for administration requests. The default port number for Platform Edition is 4848. The default port number for Enterprise Edition is 4849.

-s --secure

If set to true, uses SSL/TLS to communicate with the domain application server.

-t --terse

Indicates that any output data must be very concise, typically avoiding human-friendly sentences and favoring well-formatted data for consumption by a script. Default is false.

-e --echo

Setting to true will echo the command line statement on the standard output. Default is false.

-I --interactive

If set to true (default), only the required password options are prompted.

-h --help

Displays the help text for the command.


In Enterprise Edition, specifies the target for which you are creating the physical destination. Although the create-jmsdest command is related to resources, a physical destination is created using the JMS Service, which is part of the configuration. Valid values are

  • server, which creates the physical destination for the default server instance server and is the default value

  • configuration_name, which creates the physical destination for the named configuration

  • cluster_name, which creates the physical destination for every server instance in the cluster

  • instance_name, which creates the physical destination for a particular server instance

-T --desttype

The type of the JMS destination. Valid values are topic and queue.


Optional attribute name/value pairs for configuring the physical destination. You can specify the following property for a physical destination:

maxNumActiveConsumersThe maximum number of consumers that can be active in load-balanced delivery from a queue destination. A value of -1 means an unlimited number. The default is 1. (Platform Edition limits this value to 2.)

To modify the value of this property or to specify other physical destination properties, use the install_dir/imq/bin/imqcmd command. See the Sun Java System Message Queue 3 2005Q1 Administration Guide for more information.



A unique identifier for the the JMS destination to be created.


Example 1. Using the create-jmsdest command

The following command creates a JMS physical queue named PhysicalQueue.

asadmin> create-jmsdest --user admin 
--passwordfile passwords.txt --host localhost --port 4848 --desttype queue 
--property User=public:Password=public PhysicalQueue
