The begining

Today is the first day of a blog all about Open Message Queue and Sun Java System Message Queue.

I find the concept of a technology related blog to be a little strange so I'm not sure how this is going to go. But my plan is to cover the following types of content: \*

  • overview of how the product is architected (overview)
  • where the product is going (futures)
  • what a specific feature does (feature)
  • basics about jms or examples on how to use a feature (basics)
  • general updates about the open source product (source)
  • product updates and information (updates)

For today, I'm just going to give a quick 10 second overview about what the product is.

Open Message Queue is an open source project based off of Sun Java System Message Queue. The latest version currently available is 4.1 beta. It is available at:

        https://mq.dev.java.net/
It is a Java Message Service (JMS) provider which means that it provides reliable messaging between applications. For more information about the Java Message Service see:

       http://java.sun.com/products/jms/ 

In addition to the basic JMS features it also provides:

  • clustering of servers
  • integrated SOAP / HTTP messaging
  • a C Client API
  • a JCA 1.5 compliant Resource Adapter
  • JMX support for both administration and monitoring
  • High Availability (HA) support (starting in 4.1 beta)

Comments:

Hello "MQ Engineering":

You're refer to "I" in your blog, yet you sign with MQ Engineering. Is every blog written by someone else in the engineering team?

It would make the blog a lot more personal if you would sign with your own name.

I found everywhere documentation on how to create HA brokers. However, I cannot find a single reference on how to create HA clients. I am interested let's say to have 2 clients receiving data. One is active and one is not. Only the active one receives data, If it crashes the second should take over. I see the takeover mechanism only for brokers. I think that for an HA system this is not enough.

Any ideas on how to create HA clients?

Thanks
Bogdan
