Red Hat Middleware (JBoss) announced the release of HornetQ 2.0 GA.
HornetQ is an open source community project to build a multi-protocol, embeddable, ultra high performance, clustered, asynchronous messaging system.
HornetQ can be used to provide messaging functionality from the smallest of applications to empowering the largest of enterprise messaging topologies.
Writing a full-blown, enterprise messaging system is a huge undertaking and it's been a long and windy road to get where we are today. It's taken over 2 years of development and many late nights and weekends to get to this point, but we hope you like what you see.
HornetQ is currently an unsupported community project, but, in the not-too-distant future will be available fully supported by Red Hat as part of a JBoss Enterprise Application Platform subscription. Even sooner than that HornetQ will be available in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform as a technical preview with limited support.
It is written in Java and features flexible clustering.
