We have added support for the RESTful browsing of message queues in the activemq-web module. To try out this feature try the Web Samples.

Browsing of queues is implemented by a servlet, QueueBrowseServlet which allows queues to be browsed using pluggable views. The current views supported are

View name



Renders a list of <message> elements with an id attribute


Uses XStream to render the entire messages as XML


Uses Rome to render the messages as an RSS 0.9*, 1.0, 2.0 or Atom 0.3 feed. You can configure the type of feed using the feedType

Any properties on the view objects can be configured via reflection using query parameters. e.g. you can specify these common properties




Override the MIME content type of the view


The maximum number of messages to render
