Its been nearly a year since the last release of Apache ActiveMQ. This release focuses on stability and scalability. ActiveMQ has always been able to handle large numbers of messages with ease using its unique message paging architecture. With the 5.3 release we have made it easier for new users to scale to tens of thousands of queues, with more example configurations.
Other highlights include:
New incarnation of KahaDB one of the persistent options we support. This provides vastly improved recovery times and scalability.
We've upgraded to the latest and greatest Apache Camel 2.0 - allowing for enterprise integration patterns to be run right inside the worlds most popular message broker
Support for getting broker statistics from languages other than Java
Message Expiration support directly in-store (any message store - and we support a few)
More extensive advisory messages
Enhancements to Master/Slave - including more flexibility for starting slave brokers
NIO and SSL support for the mostly widely supported messaging transport - STOMP
Apache ActiveMQ is used in thousands of production environments for delivering high performance and reliable messaging under extreme load. Being an Apache project, it is supported by a diverse community of developers
with extensive knowledge of building messaging solutions. Why not go and give it a spin ? - try the latest download
