The Client Classpath
The recommended way to define a client dependency for your java application is through a Maven dependency declaration.
There are two dependencies you can choose from,
org.apache.activemq:artemis-jms-client for JMS 2.0 or
org.apache.activemq:artemis-jakarta-client for Jakarta Messaging 3.x.
... <dependency> <groupId>org.apache.activemq</groupId> <artifactId>artemis-jms-client</artifactId> <version>2.28.0</version> </dependency> ...
... <dependency> <groupId>org.apache.activemq</groupId> <artifactId>artemis-jakarta-client</artifactId> <version>2.28.0</version> </dependency> ...
Individual client dependencies
If you dont wish to use a build tool such as Maven which manages the dependencies for you, you may also choose to add the specific dependency jars to your classpath, which are all included under ./lib on the main distribution.
For more information of the clients individual dependencies, see:
Repackaged '-all' clients
Even though it is highly recommend to use the maven dependencies, in cases this isnt a possibility and neither is using the individual dependencies as detailed above then the all-inclusive repackaged jar could be used as an alternative.
These jars are available at Maven Central:
Whether you are using JMS or just the Core API simply add the
artemis-jms-client-all jar to your client classpath.
For Jakarta Messaging add the
artemis-jakarta-client-all jar instead.
Warning:These repackaged jars include all the client's dependencies. Be careful with mixing other components jars in your application as they may clash with each other.
