Error while deploying a Message-Driven Bean


I created a simple Message-Driven Bean, and tried to deploy it to SAP J2EE6.40 SP9. The log shows an error:

"Application cannot be started. Reason: it has hard reference to resource QueueConnectionFactory with type javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory, which is not active on the server."

Does anyone know how to correct this error?

Thanks a lot for help!

    You must deploy such QueueConnectionFactory through JMSConnector GUI in Visual Administrator.

    VA -> Server -> Services -> JMSConnector

    • Hi Hart,

      For every MDB in your application you have to specify the name of the destination to which the MDB will listen, and the name of the connection factory that will be used by the EJB Container to obtain connections in order to register the bean as a message listener. This is done in the ejb-j2ee-engine.xml and is described in the above document (

      I guess that you have already done so. Now you have to create the necessary destinations and connection factories. I see that Violeta has already provided you with some help how to do that. The problem in your case is most obviously that you have specified the same application name in the jms-destinations.xml as in the previously deployed jms-factories.xml. This has caused the factories to be undeployed. You can try by specifying different application names or you can omit the application-name tags in both XML's as they are optional. In this case the JMS Connector service will generate automatically names for your JMS resources applications.

      Best regards,
