Creating a JMS transport configuration

You can create an JMS transport configuration that describes the transport settings for a service request that uses the Java Message Service (JMS) protocol, including JBoss and IBM® WebSphere® JMS. Transport and security settings can be associated with any service request.

Before you begin

If you are using SOAP security, ensure that you have configured the environment with the correct libraries and configuration files.


  1. Click the Generic service client Open the generic service client toolbar button to open the generic service client and click the Transport tab.
    This opens the Transport Configurations page.
  2. On the Transport Configurations page, click one of the following buttons:
    • Create a basic JMS configuration (Create a basic JMS configuration) to create a new generic JMS transport configuration.
    • Create a JBoss JMS configuration (Create a JBoss JMS configuration) to create a JMS configuration preconfigured for JBoss.
    • Create a WebSphere JMS configuration (Create a WebSphere JMS configuration) to create a JMS configuration preconfigured for WebSphere® JMS.
  3. Type a Name for the new transport configuration and select whether the service is a queue or a topic destination.
  4. Type the address of the JMS end point.
  5. Select Use temporary object to provide the address of the reception point to the service as a temporary object. If you disable this setting, you must manually specify the reception point address.
  6. If the service requires authentication, select Basic Authentication and type the user name and password to access the service.
  7. If the service requires a custom Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) adapter, you can provide your own Java class that extends the Apache Axis class. In this case, select Custom Adapter and specify the name of the custom Java class. See Extending test execution with custom code for more information about custom code.
  8. Specify whether the message type is Text or Binary.
  9. If necessary, click Add or Edit to specify the Context factory properties or Connector properties required to access the service.
  10. Click OK to create the new configuration.

What to do next

Once created, you can use your new configuration with any service request that uses the JMS transport protocol. You can use the Configurations list in the generic service client to edit existing configurations or to create duplicate configurations.
