How to define a JavaMail session using CLI

Posted on Sunday Feb 16, 2014 at 07:30AM in Technology

  • Defining a JavaMail session for gmail.


  • WildFly8.0.0.Final
  • Oracle JDK7u51

Defining with jboss-cli

Define a outbound-socket-binding named “MyMailSMTP”

  • SMTP server hostname
  • SMTP server port
/socket-binding-group=standard-sockets/remote-destination-outbound-socket-binding=MyMailSMTP:add( \
host=smtp.gmail.com, \

Define a JavaMail session named “MyMail”

  • JNDI name of JavaMail session
  • Email address of the sender
  • Debug flag
/subsystem=mail/mail-session=MyMail:add(jndi-name="java:/mail/myMail", from="jane.doe@gmail.example.com", debug=true)

Add a reference from “MyMail” to “MyMailSMTP”

  • SMTP server username
  • SMTP server password
  • TLS flag
  • SSL flag
/subsystem=mail/mail-session=MyMail/server=smtp:add( \
outbound-socket-binding-ref=MyMailSMTP, \
ssl=true, \
username=jane.doe@gmail.example.com, \

Example Servlet sends a mail

public class MailServlet extends HttpServlet {
    @Resource(lookup = "java:/mail/myMail")
    Session session;

    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
        MimeMessage message = new MimeMessage(session);
        try {

            InternetAddress[] address = { new InternetAddress("jane.doe@icloud.example.com") };
            message.setRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, address);
            message.setSentDate(new Date());
        } catch (MessagingException ex) {
            throw new ServletException(ex);
