Broker URI

The Broker URI allows you to run a configured broker using a single URI for all the configuration.


The URI is assumed to be a composite uri with multiple uris that are used to bind the connectors of the broker.


If a composite URI use the network: scheme, then the rest of the URI is bound as a network connector.
