OpenMQ 4.3 Now Available - Includes Universal Message Service
By pelegri on Dec 17, 2008
OpenMQ 4.3 is now available (download). This release will be included in GlassFish v2.1 but also is useful on its own. One of the most interesting pieces is the new http-based Universal Messaging Service which can be used to access OpenMQ from a browser using AJAX, as well .Net, Python, Ruby, and many others (including Java!) - see Intro, Samples, Protocol and Configuration.
Other functionality includes new platforms (AIX, Oracle 11g, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008), a new installer, and additional Samples for things like talking to HermesJMS and STOMP.
Sun's distribution of OpenMQ still uses the "Sun Java System" brand but it follows the standard GlassFish Enterprise Business Model - see Product Page, Documentation and Downloads. And you can can purchase Commercial Subscription Support.
