MQ jars not loading under Win 64

Hi

My exact code , and with the exact IBM jars placed under jruby/lib fail
to do an import of the MQ IBM Jar on Windows 7 64 bit. So i thought
perhaps I was being naive i.e. I did not have to install any .so for mq
client on Mac OS X and thus thought the jars sufficient on Windows.
Therefore I installed the IBM MQ client package for Windows but
unfortunately that had no effect. Jruby still complains about not
finding the java package , see stack below.

It fails on this line i.e. from my jruby code:

import com.ibm.mq.MQQueueManager

which works on Mac OS X.

well full disclosure I have not tested launching if from TorqueBox
within OS X, but on OS X instead Im running on Trinidad. I dont think
that the container should matter unless TB is messing with loadpaths
i.e. Im relying on putting the jars I needed within the jruby/lib
folder.

thanks for the help

What happens if you put the jars you need under your application’s lib/
directory instead of jruby/lib? TorqueBox, being based on JBoss AS7,
does have some different classloading semantics for Java jars.

Ben

Ill try but what if I had multiple apps that used MQ , would not want
that replication? Does TB itself have a centralized place it looks for
JARS ?

thanks

Charles

You should be able to put your jars anywhere you want as long as you
require them from Ruby before trying to import or use them.

require ‘/path/to/mq.jar’

Ben

sorry for doing this piecemeal

I ran some isolated tests and Im able to do mq puts outside of TorqueBox
via straight jruby i.e.

C:\torquebox-3.0.0\jruby\bin\jruby.exe --1.9 -e
$stdout.sync=true;$stderr.sync=true;load($0=ARGV.shift) --2.0
"C:/Users/Charles M./RubymineProjects/TestMQ/test_mq.rb

TB is using 1.7.4

also tried 1.7.6

and this all works.

So I guess this is pointing to that there is something about the
deployed context with TB that is not making those jars accessible.

Again, would hate to have to co-locate to my apps/lib dir

perhaps force jruby/lib into the loadpath i.e. from within my app ? or
some TB config setting ?

Charles

It seems that Torquebox due to its concept of Runtime pools effectively
bypasses/prevents jruby/lib from being in the load path, they provide a
torquebox_init.rb which is ran upon runtime init
so I assume that adding jruby/lib to the load_path there might work.

any reason why that might not be a good idea ?

thanks
