An Oracle blog about Java Technology

Some JMS and OpenMQ for the holidays

Guest Author

JMS and OpenMQ seems to be a recurring topic on the GlassFish forums and mailing-list so we've now made the content of a fairly recent bootcamp available for everyone to play with to become familiar with the technology.


The bootcamp covers basics on OpenMQ and how it relates to GlassFish, sending and receiving JMS messages, using MDB's (message-driven beans), setting up an MQ broker using a GlassFish instance or a GlassFish Cluster.

Just what you needed for the holidays!

    Is OpenMQ still being developed? Commits & Dev mail-lists are silent for months already.



    Same for OpenDS, OpenSSO, OpenESB - it seems that Oracle killed the infrastructure around Glassfish making in valuable only as a reference implementation or small projects(wonna more - move to WebLogic?). Because otherwise you have to look at Apache/SpringSource/JBoss full stacks.

    JMS is an integral part of Java EE and OpenMQ is a crucial component for GlassFish.

    GlassFish 3.1.1 shipped with 4.5.1 in July 2011 and we're moving to 4.6 in GlassFish 3.1.2.

    Finally, as you may know JMS is moving to 2.0 and OpenMQ will be the reference implementation for this new version. Implementation work has not started.

    The only difference at Oracle is that there is no supported *standalone* product (Open MQ comes with GlassFish).
