Websphere Remote Jndi Lookup - ClassCastException javax.naming.Reference cannot be cast to javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory

Hi,

Someone has asked a similar question to this previously, but they didn't really reveal how they solved it.

I'm doing a Remote JNDI Lookup for a QueueConnectionFactory. The QueueConnectionFactory and the ear I'm working with are deployed on Websphere. Im also using Websphere MQ. I'm pretty sure my InitialContext is set up correctly. It retrieves my queues without problem.

However, when I do a lookup of the QueueConnectionFactory, my attempt to cast the object returns a ClassCastException.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ClassCastException: javax.naming.Reference cannot be cast to javax.jms.QueueConnectionFactory at queue.RemoteExecutionServerRunner.setUpWASQueue(RemoteExecutionServerRunner.java:101)
at queue.ExecutionServerTest.main(ExecutionServerTest.java:23)

Googling around leads me to things its something to do with the classpath.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
jndiContext = getJndiContext();
 

connectionFactory = (QueueConnectionFactory)   jndiContext.lookup("jms/BRESQueueConnectionFactory");

sendQueue = (Queue) jndiContext.lookup("queue/BRESQueueIn");

replyQueue = (Queue) jndiContext.lookup("queue/BRESQueueOut");
 
 

private Context getJndiContext() {

		

	Context ctx = null;

		

	try {

		Properties properties = new Properties();

		properties.setProperty(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory");

		properties.setProperty(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "corbaloc:iiop:idassysapp2:2811");

		properties.setProperty(Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES,"com.ibm.ws.naming");

		

		properties.setProperty("com.ibm.CORBA.ORBInit", "com.ibm.ws.sib.client.ORB");

		

		ctx = new InitialContext(properties);

			

	} catch (NamingException e) {

		e.printStackTrace();

	}

		

	return ctx;

}

I would suggest using InitialContext as return type.

Make sure you have the IBM JDK libraries on the classpath.

And eventually check this link:

Hi Tuno,

Thanks for the response.

I have three IBM jars on my application build path.

sibc.jms.jar
sibc.jndi.jar
sibc.orb.jar

Are these enough? I've tried adding all the jars from my Websphere 6 installation directory to the build path but that doesn't seem to solve it.

Thanks

How do you execute this. On the server or unit test?

Do you use the IBM JVM?

Did you try InitialContext as return type?

I've written a standalone application, accessing Websphere remotely. My class is executed within a main method.

I did try the InitialContext as a return type, the error still occurs. I'm using the Sun JVM.

I am looking at the similar code I am using. Nothing wrong. Should be working.

Try using the IBM JVM, maybe that this works. Although same mechanism should be working with Sun JVM.

I was also looking around and also found this:

Hi,

Thanks for the link. I have allowed access to the Internal Server Classes on the Websphere Application Server.

I have managed to figure it out. It's not a very elegant solution but it works. This probably ties in with using the IBM JVM, but I imported a host of Jars from the Application Server into my client application. The directories were:

${WAS_HOME}\AppServer\lib
${WAS_HOME}\AppServer\plugins

Having these jars on my application classpath seemed to fix the problem.

Hope this helps anyone who comes across this problem. Thanks for the help Tuno.
