  • No MBeanServer found in tests using RAD / Websphere

    To control some Spring beans on runtime I enabled RMI using <context:mbean-export /> in the context. Via annotations I configured a Spring bean for RMI. When running Websphere the beans were added to the MBean server and everything works perfectly.

    However, when I now run my JUnit tests, all tests fail because the application context cannot be created. This is caused because the RMI exporter cannot find a server to export the beans to. See error trace below.
    Even though the test run independently with Maven, somehow the JVM knows I'm using Websphere and is complaining the Websphere MBean server cannot be found. Logically, because it's a test and a server is not needed.

    I tried to create an MBean server by adding <bean id="mbeanServer" class=" FactoryBean"/> to my test-context, but this didn't work. It wants the Websphere MBean server.

    I need a configuration which works both in Websphere and when running tests. Tests use an additional test-context to configure missing or dummy services which are used by the project. I had a look at the Spring code and saw it uses to determine the MBean server.
    Any ideas how I can get the test-context working with RMI enabled?
    How do I 'fool' the ManagementFactory to return the MBean server which I configure in my test-context?

    Error trace:

    Hi Joost,

    What's the log output if you set the log level for org.springframework.jmx to DEBUG?
