PostHeaderIcon When WebLogic always routes on the same node of the cluster…

Case

Since a couple of days I have met the following issue on my WebLogic server: one application is deployed on a cluster, which references two nodes. Load-balancing (in Round-Robin) is activated for JMS dispatching.

  • Yet, all JMS messages are received only by one node (let’s say “the first”), none is received by the other (let’s say “the second”).
  • When the 1st node falls, the 2nd receives the messages.
  • When the 1st node is started up again, the 2nd keeps on receving the messages.
  • When the 2nd node falls, the 1st receives the messages
  • and so on

Fix

In WebLogic console go to JMS Modules. In the table of resources, select the connection factory. Then go to the tab Configuration and Load Balance. Uncheck “Server Affinity Enabled“.

Now it should work.

Many thanks to Jeffrey A. West for his help via Twitter.

PostHeaderIcon BEA / JMSExceptions 045101

Case

I used a RuntimeTest to send a JMS message on a WebLogic application, with native WebLogic hosting of the queues, distributed queues to me more accurate. The test was OK.
I clustered the application. When I execute the same test, I get the following error:

[JMSExceptions:045101]The destination name passed to createTopic or createQueue "JONATHAN_LALOU_JMS_DISTRIBUTED_QUEUE" is invalid. If the destination name does not contain a "/" character then it must be the name of a distributed destination that is available in the cluster to which the client is attached. If it does contain a "/" character then the string before the "/" must be the name of a JMSServer or a ".". The string after the "/" is the name of a the desired destination. If the "./" version of the string is used then any destination with the given name on the local WLS server will be returned.

Fix

Since the message error is rather explicit, I tried to add a slash ('/') or a dot ('.') or both ('./'), but none worked.
To fix the issue, you have to prefix the queue name with the JMS module name and an exclamation mark ('!'), in the RuntimeTest configuration file, eg replace:

<property name="defaultDestinationName" value="JONATHAN_LALOU_JMS_DISTRIBUTED_QUEUE"/>

with:

<property name="defaultDestinationName" value="JmsWeblogicNatureModule!JONATHAN_LALOU_JMS_DISTRIBUTED_QUEUE"/>

PostHeaderIcon Mule / MQJMS3000: failed to create a temporary queue from SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE

Case

I have a Mule workflow, of which outbound is a <jms:outbound-endpoint>. The destination queue is hosted on MQ Series and accessed through WebLogic 10.3.3 bridge.

I get the following error:

MQJMS3000: failed to create a temporary queue from SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE

Explanation

A similar issue is described here on Mule support forum. Richard Swart wrote:

This not really mule specific error but an MQ authorization error. The QueueSession.createTemporaryQueue method needs access to the model queue that is defined in the QueueConnectionFactory temporaryModel field (by default this is SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE).

Quick Fix

To fix the issue: on MQ server side, grant visibility to client applications on the default SYSTEM.DEFAULT.MODEL.QUEUE

PostHeaderIcon Tutorial: from an application, make a clustered application, within WebLogic 10

Abstract

You have a non-clustered installation, on the host with DNS name jonathanDevDesktop, with an admin (port: 7001), a muletier (port: 7003) and a webtier (port: 7005) instances.
You need set your muletier as a clustered installation, with two nodes, on the same server. The second node will dedeployed on port 7007.

We assume you have a configured JMS Modules (in our case: JmsMqModule, even though the bridge between WebLogic and MQ has no impact here).

Process

Batches

  • Copy $DOMAINS\jonathanApplication\start-muletier-server.bat" as $DOMAINS\jonathanApplication\start-muletier-server-2.bat"
  • Edit it:
    • Possibly, modify the debug port (usually: 5006)
    • Replace the line
      call "%DOMAIN_HOME%\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd" muletier t3://jonathanDevDesktop:7001

      with

      call "%DOMAIN_HOME%\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd" muletier2 t3://jonathanDevDesktop:7001

Second Node Creation

  • Following points are not required.
    • Copy the folder %DOMAIN_HOME%\servers\muletier as %DOMAIN_HOME%\servers\muletier2
    • Delete the folders %DOMAIN_HOME%\servers\muletier2\cache and %DOMAIN_HOME%\servers\muletier2\logs
  • Stop the server muletier
  • On WebLogic console:
    • Servers > New > Server Name: muletier2, Server Listen Port: 7007 > Check Yes, create a new cluster for this server. > Next
    • Name: jonathanApplication.cluster.muletier > Messaging Mode: Multicast, Multicast Address: 239.235.0.4, Multicast Port:5777
    • Clusters > jonathanApplication.cluster.muletier > Configuration > Servers > Select a server: muletier
    • Clusters > jonathanApplication.cluster.muletier > Configuration > Servers > Select a server: muletier2
  • Start the instances of muletier and muletier2 in MS-DOS consoles.
  • On the WebLogic console:
    • Deployments > jonathanApplication-web (the mule instance) > Targets > check “jonathanApplication.cluster.muletier” and “All servers in the cluster” > Save
  • On the muletier2 DOS console, you can see the application is deployed.

JMS Configuration

The deployment of JMS on clustered environment is a little tricky.

  • On WebLogic console: JMS Modules > JmsMqModule > Targets > check “jonathanApplication.cluster.muletier” and “All servers in the cluster
  • Even though it is not required, restart your muletiers. Then you can send messages either on port 7003 or 7007, they will be popped and handled the same way.

PostHeaderIcon Tutorial: Use WebShere MQ as JMS provider within WebLogic 10.3.3, and Mule ESB as a client

Abstract

You have an application deployed on WebLogic 10 (used version for this tutorial: 10.3.3). You have to use an external provider for JMS, in our case MQ Series / WebSphere MQ.
The client side is a Mule ESB launched in standalone.

Prerequisites

You have:

  • a running WebLogic 10 with an admin instance and an another instance, in our case: Muletier.
  • a file file.bindings, used for MQ.

JARs installation

  • Stop all your WebLogic 10 running instances.
  • Get the JARs from MQ Series folders:
    • providerutil.jar
    • fscontext.jar
    • dhbcore.jar
    • connector.jar
    • commonservices.jar
    • com.ibm.mqjms.jar
    • com.ibm.mq.jar
  • Copy them in your domain additional libraries folder (usually: user_projects/domains/jonathanApplication/lib/)
  • Start WebLogic 10 admin. A block like this should appear:
    &lt;Oct 15, 2010 12:09:21 PM CEST&gt; &lt;Notice&gt; &lt;WebLogicServer&gt; &lt;BEA-000395&gt; &lt;Following extensions directory contents added to the end of the classpath:
    C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\com.ibm.mq.jar;C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\com.ibm.mqjms.jar;C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\commonservices.jar;C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\connector.jar;C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\dhbcore.jar;C:\win32app\bea\user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\fscontext.jar;C:\win32app\bea\
    user_projects\domains\jonathanApplication\lib\providerutil.jar&gt;

Config

  • Get file.bindings, copy it into user_projects/domains/jonathanApplication/config/jms, rename it as .bindings (without any prefix)
  • Launch the console, login
  • JMS > JMS Modules > Create JMS System Module > Name: JmsMqModule. Leave other fields empty. > Next > target server MuleTier > Finish
  • Select JmsMqModule > New > Foreign Server > Name: MQForeignServer > keep check MuleTier > Finish
    • Select MQForeignServer >
    • Tab Connection Factories > New >
      • Name: MQForeignConnectionFactory
      • Local JNDI Name: the JNDI name on WebLogic side, eg: jonathanApplication/jms/connectionFactory/local (convention I could observe: separator on WebLogic: slash '/' ; unlike clients for which the separator in a dot '.')
      • Remote JNDI Name: the JNDI name on MQ side, eg: JONATHAN_APPLICATION.QCF
      • OK
    • Tab Destinations > New >
      • Queue of requests:
        • Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REQUEST
        • Local JNDI Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REQUEST
        • Remote JNDI Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REQUEST
      • Queue of response:
        • Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REPONSE
        • Local JNDI Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REPONSE
        • Remote JNDI Name: JONATHAN.APPLICATION.REPONSE
      • NB: usually, MQ data are upper-cased and Java’s JNDI names are low-cased typed ; anyway (because of Windows not matching case?) here we use uppercase in for both names.

Mule

This part of the tutorial deals with a case of Mule ESB being your client application (sending and/or receiving JMS messages).

  • Get the archive wlfullclient.jar (56MB). Alternatively, you can generate it yourself: go to the server/lib directory of your WebLogic installation (usually: C:\win32app\bea\wlserver_10.3\server\lib, and run: java -jar wljarbuilder.jar
  • Copy the archive into $MULE_HOME/lib/user
  • Copy the seven jars above (providerutil.jar, fscontext.jar, dhbcore.jar, connector.jar, commonservices.jar, com.ibm.mqjms.jar, com.ibm.mq.jar) into the same folder: $MULE_HOME/lib/user
  • You can launch the mule. The config file is similar to any other configuration using standard JMS.
