How to send arguments to the JVM when using the JNBridge JMS adapters for .NET and BizTalk Server

Depending on circumstances, it may be necessary to send arguments to the JVM when using the JMS adapters. For example, in order to use the adapter with a Sun JVM to connect to an IBM WebSphere JMS implementation which uses the IBM server JVM, a JEE system property must be set due to the different ORB implementations in each vendor’s JRE. This can be done by passing the argument to the adapter’s JVM using a registry value. This registry value must be added manually.


Please carefully follow these steps. Make sure spelling and case are correct for value names and contents.

  1. Open up the regedit.exe application and navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJNBridgeJMSAdaptersBTS2006 or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREJNBridgeJMSAdaptersDotNet depending on the adapter you’re using. There should be an existing value present, InstallationDirectory, pointing to the adapter’s home directory
  2. Create a new value of type Multi-String and name it JVM_Arguments.
  3. Modify the value by adding an argument per line to the Multi-String value. For example, the screen shot below shows configuring JVM memory managment using the -Xms and -Xmx arguments.
