The ZeroConf Transport

The ZeroConf transport works just like Discovery Transport, except that it uses a ZeroConf based discovery agent to locate the list of broker uris to connect to.

Configuration Syntax


where serviceName is the Zeroconf service name; which seems to start with an underscore (_) and must end with a dot (.). So we can use this service name to distinguish development, UAT & production brokers - or group them into domains etc.

Note that to be able to use ZeroConf to find brokers, the brokers need to have Discovery enabled. To configure discovery in a Broker you should use the Xml Configuration. Its basically something like...

<broker name="foo">
    <transportConnector name="openwire" uri="tcp://" discoveryUri="zeroconf:_activemq_development. />
