BOARD REPORT - February 2016

  • Apache.NMS added a new provider implementation Apache.NMS.XMS for connecting to IBM WebSphere MQSeries. This was contributed by the user community, and based on the existing Apache.NMS provider implementation for TIBCO EMS. There are now eight NMS provider implementations.
  • ActiveMQ 5.x added several new features in version 5.13.0
    • There is now support for automatic wire protocol detection (OpenWire, STOMP, MQTT, and AMQP) using the new auto transport.
    • Improved metrics as the broker now keeps track of the memory size of pending messages.
    • A pure Java API for runtime configuration changes to the broker.  Previously only changes could be done in XML.
    • There is now support for dynamic network demand based on the existence of Virtual Consumers.
    • Support was added for sending scheduled message using message annotations when using AMQP.
    • The ability to dynamically shrink and regrow the store size at runtime based on available disk space.
