Broker Properties URI

From version 4.2 of ActiveMQ onwards the Broker Properties URI allows you to run a configured broker by referencing a properties file which could be on the classpath, a local file or a remote URL.

Syntax

properties:name

Where name is some name which is resolved on the classpath, as a local file or a remote URL which points to the properties file used to configure the broker.

Example URI

The following examples show variations in using the URI

properties:/foo/bar.properties
properties:foo.properties
properties:http://foo.com/foo.properties

Here is an example properties file
