8.3. Upgrading the MDB to Send an Email Message

If you'll recall from the JMS and MDB chapter, the CreditCheckProcessor MDB's onMessage( ) method consumes the message and invokes a simulated external credit verification service. Example 8-1 shows the changes necessary to send an email message with JavaMail.

Example 8-1.
 public class CreditCheckProcessorBean implements MessageDrivenBean, MessageListener {     private static final String JAVAMAIL_SESSION =                                            "java:comp/env/mail/JawJavaMailSession";     private static final String JAW_MOTORS_EMAIL_ADDRESS =                                            "";     private static final String CREDIT_VERIFICATION_RESULT = "Credit Check Result";     ...     public void onMessage(Message message) {         System.out.println(             "CreditCheckProcessorBean.onMessage(  ): Received message.");         try {             if (message instanceof ObjectMessage) {                 ObjectMessage objMessage = (ObjectMessage) message;                 Object obj = objMessage.getObject(  );                 if (obj instanceof CreditCheckRequestDTO) {                     String result = null;                         CreditCheckRequestDTO creditCheckReq =                                                    (CreditCheckRequestDTO) obj;                     System.out.println("Verifying Credit ...");                     result = CreditVerificationService.verifyCredit(                                                          creditCheckReq);                     System.out.println("Credit Check Result = [" + result + "]");                     sendNotificationEmail(creditCheckReq, result);                 } else {                     System.err.println(                                     "Expecting CreditCheckRequestDTO in Message");                 }             } else {                 System.err.println("Expecting Object Message");             }         } catch (Throwable t) {             t.printStackTrace(  );         }     }     private void sendNotificationEmail(CreditCheckRequestDTO creditCheckReq,                                        String result) {         javax.mail.Session javaMailSession = null;         try {             javaMailSession =                           ServiceLocator.getJavaMailSession(JAVAMAIL_SESSION);             TextEmail email = new TextEmail(javaMailSession);             email.setBody(result);             email.setSender(JAW_MOTORS_EMAIL_ADDRESS);             email.setSubject(CREDIT_VERIFICATION_RESULT);             email.addRecipient(creditCheckReq.getEmail(  ));             System.out.println("Sending Email to [" + creditCheckReq.getEmail(  ) +                                "] ...");             email.send(  );         } catch (ServiceLocatorException sle) {             System.err.println("Error Looking up JavaMail Session: " + sle);             sle.printStackTrace(  );         }     } } 

The onMessage( ) method consumes a JMS message that contains the user's credit information. After pulling the CreditCheckRequestDTO out of the JMS message, we pass it to our emulated external credit verification service. The CreditVerificationService.verifyCredit( ) method simulates a long-running process and returns a String result value that indicates whether the credit check passed or failed. The sendNotificationEmail( ) method takes the CreditCheckRequestDTO and credit check result as parameters and sends a notification email to the customer. The sendNotificationEmail( ) method uses the ServiceLocator to look up a JavaMail Session by using JNDI, and then invokes the TextEmail utility class to send the email message. Some readers may not be familiar with using JNDI to look up a JavaMail Sessionwe'll cover this in the "JavaMail Sessions" section. The "Factoring out JNDI Calls" section shows the new ServiceLocator method used to find the JavaMail Session.

Let's take a closer look at the TextEmail utility to see how it uses the JavaMail API calls to send an email message.
