Enable CMP entity beans and messaging engine data stores to share database connections
Use this task to enable container-managed persistence (CMP) entity beans to share the database connections used by the data store of a messaging engine. Performing this task has been estimated to provide a potential performance improvement of 15% for overall message throughput, but can only be used for entity beans connected to the application server that contains the messaging engine. To enable CMP entity beans to share the database connections used by the data store of a messaging engine, complete the following steps.
- Configure the data store to use a data source that is not XA-capable. For more information about configuring a data store, see Configure a JDBC data source for a messaging engine.
- Select the Share data source with CMP option. This option is provided on the JMS connection factory or JMS activation specification used to connect to the service integration bus that hosts the bus destination used to store and process messages for the CMP bean.
For example, to select the option on a unified JMS connection factory...
- Display the default messaging provider. In the navigation pane, click Resources -> JMS -> JMS providers.
- Select the default provider for which to configure a unified connection factory.
- Optional: Change the Scope check box to set the level at which the connection factory is to be visible, according to your needs.
- In the content pane, under Additional Properties, click Connection factories.
- Optional: To create a new unified JMS connection factory, click New.
Specify the following properties for the connection factory:
- Type the name by which the connection factory is known for administrative purposes.
- JNDI name
- Type the JNDI name used to bind the connection factory into the namespace.
- Bus name
- Type the name of the service integration bus that the connection factory is to create connections to. This service integration bus hosts the destinations that the JMS queues and topics are assigned to.
- Optional: To change the properties of an existing connection factory, select its name from one of the connection factories displayed. The properties for the connection factory are displayed in the content pane.
- Select the check box for the Share data source with CMP field.
- Click OK.
- Save your changes to the master configuration.
The JMS connection factory can only be used to connect to a "local" messaging engine that is in the application server on which the CMP beans are deployed.
- Deploy the CMP beans onto the application server that contains the messaging engine, and specify the same data source as that used by the messaging engine. We can use the administrative console...
- Optional: To determine the data source used by the messaging engine...
Servers -> Server Types -> WebSphere application servers -> server_name
-> [Server messaging] Messaging engines -> engine_name -> [Additional Properties] Message store .
The Data source name field displays the name of the data source, which is by default:jdbc/com.ibm.ws.sib/engine_name
- Click Applications -> New Application -> New Enterprise Application.
- On the first Preparing for the application installation page, specify the full path name of the source application file (.ear file, otherwise known as an EAR file), then click Next.
- On the second Preparing for the application installation page...
- Select the check box for Generate Default Bindings. Data source bindings (for EJB 1.1 JAR files) are generated based on the JNDI name, data source, user name, and password options. This results in default data source settings for each EJB JAR file. No bean-level data source bindings are generated.
- Under Connection Factory Bindings, select the check box for Default connection factory bindings:, then type the JNDI name for the data source and optionally select a Resource authorization value.
- Click Next to display the Install New Application pages. The contents of the application that you are installing determines which pages are available.
- If the application uses EJB modules that contain CMP beans that are based on the EJB 1.x specification, for Map default data sources for modules containing 1.x entity beans, specify a JNDI name for the default data source for the EJB modules. The default data source for the EJB modules is optional if data sources are specified for individual CMP beans.
- If the application has CMP beans that are based on the EJB 1.x specification, for Map data sources for all 1.x CMP, specify a JNDI name for data sources to be used for each of the 1.x CMP beans. The data source attribute is optional for individual CMP beans if a default data source is specified for the EJB module that contains CMP beans.
- Click Finish. If neither a default data source for the EJB module nor a data source for individual CMP beans are specified, a validation error displays and the installation is cancelled.
- Complete other pages as needed.
- On the Summary page, verify the cell, node, and server onto which the application modules will install.
- Beside Cell/Node/Server, click Click here.
- Verify the settings on the Map modules to servers page that is displayed. Ensure that the application server specified contains the messaging engine and its data store.
- Specify the web servers as targets that will serve as routers for requests to this application. This information is used to generate the plug-in configuration file (plugin-cfg.xml) for each web server.
- Return to the Summary page.
- Click Finish.
