How to Avoid Anonymous Lookups on JMS Queues (Doc ID 2202205.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 25, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When no credentials are provided in the initial context, by default a JMS client can lookup the JMS resources. It may be desired to remove this lookup.


Hashtable properties = new Hashtable();
properties.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "weblogic.jndi.WLInitialContextFactory");
// NOTE: The port number of the server is provided in the next line,
// followed by the userid and password on the next two lines.
properties.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "t3://<HOSTNAME>:<PORT>");
properties.put(Context.SECURITY_PRINCIPAL, "<USERNAME>");
properties.put(Context.SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, "<PASSWORD>");

Even without SECURITY_PRINCIPAL or SECURITY_CREDENTIALS, the JMS client program can connect to the server, lookup queues and read/write JMS messages.
