A ActiveMQResourceAdapter can be declared via xml in the <tomee-home>/conf/tomee.xml file or in a WEB-INF/resources.xml file using a declaration like the following. All properties in the element body are optional.

<Resource id="myActiveMQResourceAdapter" type="ActiveMQResourceAdapter">
    brokerXmlConfig = broker:(tcp://localhost:61616)?useJmx=false
    dataSource = Default Unmanaged JDBC Database
    serverUrl = vm://localhost?waitForStart=20000&async=true
    startupTimeout = 10 seconds

Alternatively, a ActiveMQResourceAdapter can be declared via properties in the <tomee-home>/conf/ file or via Java VirtualMachine -D properties. The properties can also be used when embedding TomEE via the jakarta.ejb.embeddable.EJBContainer API or InitialContext

myActiveMQResourceAdapter = new://Resource?type=ActiveMQResourceAdapter
myActiveMQResourceAdapter.brokerXmlConfig = broker:(tcp://localhost:61616)?useJmx=false
myActiveMQResourceAdapter.dataSource = Default Unmanaged JDBC Database
myActiveMQResourceAdapter.serverUrl = vm://localhost?waitForStart=20000&async=true
myActiveMQResourceAdapter.startupTimeout = 10 seconds

Properties and xml can be mixed. Properties will override the xml allowing for easy configuration change without the need for $\{} style variable substitution. Properties are not case sensitive. If a property is specified that is not supported by the declared ActiveMQResourceAdapter a warning will be logged. If a ActiveMQResourceAdapter is needed by the application and one is not declared, TomEE will create one dynamically using default settings. Multiple ActiveMQResourceAdapter declarations are allowed.
