Built-in Glassfish and `imqcmd`

We are using the built-in Glassfish server in our test environment. We use an interface org.glassfish.embeddable.CommandRunner

to perform administrative tasks (that is, what we do with asadmin

a standard standalone Glassfish server)


GlassFish glassfish = GlassFishRuntime.bootstrap( bp ).newGlassFish( gfp );
CommandRunner commandRunner = glassfish.getService( CommandRunner.class );


Now on the command line, I can set the queue parameters with imqcmd

. for example

imqcmd -u admin -passfile ../password.txt update dst -n SOME_QUEUE_NAME -t q -o maxBytesPerMsg=-1 -f


Is there a way to achieve the same with the built-in Glassfish server?

Instead of using it, imqcmd

you can use a subcommand asadmin


to create a physical JMS destination.

From the documentation in create-jmsdest


Typically, you use a subcommand create-jms-resource

to create a JMS destination resource that has a Name property that specifies the physical destination. The physical object is created automatically when the application starts using the target resource. Use this subcommand create-jmsdest

if you want to create a physical target with custom property settings.

If you do not specify the Name property for create-jms-resource

, the name of the physical target will have the same name as the target resource (replacing any forward slash in the JNDI name with an underscore).

Thus, the commands asadmin

you want to run are for example:

create-jms-resource --restype javax.jms.Queue org/example/foo/SomeQueue
create-jmsdest --desttype queue --property maxBytesPerMsg=-1:maxTotalMsgBytes=-1 org_example_foo_SomeQueue


Note that (unlike imqcmd update dst

) create-jmsdest

does not update properties if the resource already exists. Therefore, you should not run your application between two commands, otherwise the resource is automatically created with default properties.

If you need to update the properties, you can first remove the physical address, using, for example asadmin delete-jmsdest org_example_foo_SomeQueue
