The current release of JBoss Messaging is a non clustered, single server setup.
We are currently developing clustering which will include fully distributed destinations, transparent failover etc., which should be available in version 1.2.
Thanks for the reply. I am little confused now. I thought JBoss AS is clusterable and messaging can be deployed in singleton service mode since it is embedded in AS and not standalone. Is that correct? Should we be using JBoss MQ instead?
If you want clustered JMS right now, then you should use JBossMQ since we currently don't support clustering.
You should bear in mind though that when JBoss Messaging clustering comes out in 1.2, it will be much more advanced then JBoss MQ clustering, since we will support fully distributed destinations, transparent failover etc., none of which is supported in MQ.
Having said that JBoss MQ is a good solid jms server and suitable for most needs.
Thanks. I could not find a road map for JBoss Messaging. How soon is 1.2 going to be released? If we use JBoss MQ and clustering, how difficult will it be to migrate to JBoss Messaging? Are there any guidelines for future easy migration?
Thanks for the help.
