Apache ActiveMQ and IBM MQ: High Availability and Administrative Analysis


Here is the new report published by Zibis Group comparing IBM MQ and Apache ActiveMQ (AMQ). To quote executive summary: QUOTE: “This report provides the results of a reliability and high availability examination of the most recent and popular open source and commercial message oriented middleware solutions; namely Apache ActiveMQ 5.11.1 and IBM MQ 8.0.

Java EE 7: JMS with ActiveMQ


Another interesting topic in a JEE 7 application is messaging. So in this article I’ll take a peek at ActiveMQ and Java Message (JMS) to see how to tie them together to a working application. In this article I’ll use the Java EE 7 project set up in the last article.

More advanced stuff with JMS and AWS SQS


As you might know SQS in AWS SQS stands for ‘Simple Queue Service’. While playing around with it I recently found one of the reasons why it may be called ‘simple’. In two previous posts (here and here) I showed to use SQS as a JMS queue provider in combination with the Spring Framework. With […]

Setting up a JMS bridge between Weblogic and ActiveMQ


Almost four years ago, I wrote about how to setup a JMS bridge between Weblogic and HornetQ. Lately, I’ve had to research how to do the same work with ActiveMQ. Here you have my findings. As it was for HornetQ, the first step was to copy the client libraries to a folder residing in a […]

How to connect Glassfish 3 to an external ActiveMQ 5 broker


via How to connect Glassfish 3 to an external ActiveMQ 5 broker | Geert Schuring.

Here at ONVZ we’re using Glassfish 3 as our development and production application server, and we’re quite happy with its performance and stability, as well as the large community surrounding it. I rarely run into a problem that does not have a matching solution on stackoverflow or java.net. As part of our open source strategy we also run a customized ActiveMQ cluster called “ONVZ Message Bus”.

To enable Message Driven Beans and other EJBs to consume and produce messages to and from the ActiveMQ message brokers, ignoring the internal OpenMQ broker that comes shipped with Glassfish, an ActiveMQ Resource Adapter has to be installed. Luckily for me Sven Hafner wrote a blog post about running an embedded ActiveMQ 5 broker in Glassfish 3, and I was able to distill the information I needed to connect to an external broker instead. This blog post describes what I did to get it to work.

9 Docker Recipes for Java EE Applications


via 9 Docker Recipes for Java EE Applications | Voxxed.

A typical Java EE application consists of an application server, such as WildFly, and a database, such as MySQL. In addition, you might have a separate front-end tier, say Apache, for load balancing a number of application server. A caching layer, such as Infinispan, may be used to improve overall application performance. Messaging system, such as ActiveMQ, may be used for processing queues. Both the caching and messaging components could be setup as a cluster for further scalability.

This Tech Tip will show some simple Docker recipes to configure your containers that use application server and database. Subsequent blog will cover more advanced recipes that will include front-end, caching, messaging, and clustering.

Lets get started!
