Introduction

Warning, try Camel first!

Icon

Note that we recommend you look at using Apache Camel for bridging ActiveMQ to or from any message broker (or indeed any other technology, protocol or middleware) as its much easier to:

e.g. in your Spring XML file just add:

ActiveMQ provides bridging functionality to other JMS providers that implement the JMS 1.0.2 and above specification.
A JMS bridge can be co-located with an ActiveMQ broker or run remotely.
In order to support JMS 1.0.2 there is seperation between Queues and Topics.

temporary destinations and replyTo destinations in the inbound message exchanges are automatically handled, enabling an ActiveMQ service to handle a foreign JMS TopicRequestor or QueueResquestor exchanges.

Example XBean Configuration

The following example config file shows how to use the regular Xml Configuration to configure a JMS to JMS bridge.

Example pure Spring Configuration

The following example shows how to use raw Spring XML to wire together a broker - bridging to a Foreign JMS provider

Example XBean Configuration to Bridge ActiveMQ to Provider With No URL Setter

Some JMS providers, WebLogic for instance, do not expose a setter for connection properties like host and port (setBrokerUrl) on their ConnectionFactory object. In this case you need to set outboundQueueConnectionFactoryName and jndiOutboundTemplate in your activemq.xml config file.

Example pure Spring Configuration for sending messages to external ActiveMQ destination through bridge
