i need to have JBoss 3.2.3 to build my MDBs when it is starting up but i do not want them start or deploy the MDBs. i want to be able to start the MDBs manually or programatically/devalaratively after all the MDBs have been craeted and deployment is complete or even after deployment. pls tell me what i can do to this.
By 'not deploy the MDBs' you mean ''Not processing pending messages in queues', right? If so there is a flag you can set per MDB which specify whether the MDB is 'active' or not (I think it's deliveryActive or something, check the jboss_3_2.dtd for more details).
