How to configure a new database

 FAQ > Configuration > How to configure a new database

ActiveMQ Classic explicity supports Derby, Axion, HSQL, Oracle, and SQLServer. Below are the steps on how to configure a new database.

  1. Modify activemq.xml found in the directory “activemq_home/conf” by editing or adding a JDBC DataSource Configuration, e.g.:

     <bean id="mysql-ds" class="org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource" destroy-method="close">
       <property name="driverClassName" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/>
       <property name="url" value="jdbc:mysql://localhost/activemq"/>
       <property name="username" value="activemq"/>
       <property name="password" value="activemq"/>
       <property name="poolPreparedStatements" value="true"/>

    For AMQ 3.x

     <bean id="mssql-ds" class="org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource" destroy-method="close">
         <property name="driverClassName">
         <property name="url">
         <property name="username">
         <property name="password">
         <property name="poolPreparedStatements">
  2. Set the datasource reference to use the new jdbc configuration e.g <jdbcPersistence dataSourceRef="mssql-ds"/>

  3. Place the jdbc driver in the directory “activemq_home/lib/optional”.
