The Java EE 5 Tutorial

Building, Deploying, and Running the clientsessionmdb Example Using NetBeans IDE

    To build, deploy, and run the application using NetBeans IDE, do the following:

  1. Start the Application Server, if it is not already running.

  2. In NetBeans IDE, choose Open Project from the File menu.

  3. In the Open Project dialog, navigate to tut-install/javaeetutorial5/examples/jms/.

  4. Select the clientsessionmdb folder.

  5. Select the Open as Main Project check box and the Open Required Projects check box.

  6. Click Open Project.

  7. Right-click the clientsessionmdb project and choose Build.

    This task creates the following:

    • An application client JAR file that contains the client class file and the session bean’s remote interface, along with a manifest file that specifies the main class

    • An EJB JAR file that contains both the session bean and the message-driven bean

    • An application EAR file that contains the two JAR files

  8. Right-click the project and choose Undeploy and Deploy.

  9. Right-click the project and choose Run.

    This command returns a JAR file named clientsessionmdbClient.jar and then executes it.

The output of the application client in the Output pane looks like this:

To view the bean output,
 check <install_dir>/domains/domain1/logs/server.log.

The output from the enterprise beans appears in the server log (domain-dir/logs/server.log), wrapped in logging information. The Publisher session bean sends two sets of 18 messages numbered 0 through 17. Because of the message selector, the message-driven bean receives only the messages whose NewsType property is Sports or Opinion.

    Undeploy the application after you finish running the client. To undeploy the application, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Services tab.

  2. Expand the Servers node.

  3. Expand the Sun Java System Application Server node.

  4. Expand the Applications node.

  5. Expand the Enterprise Applications node.

  6. Right-click clientsessionmdb and choose Undeploy.

To remove the generated files, right-click the clientsessionmdb project and choose Clean.
