    2.0.0 alpha status

    Matt Mastracci Newbie

      As a recent adopter and frustrated user of ActiveMQ, I'm very interested in evaluating JBoss Messaging as a JMS solution. I've come across the amazing work you guys have done for your up-and-coming 2.0 release and it's looking really fantastic.

      Is 2.0.0 alpha usable for any sort of production environment? I understand that the software is currently in development and may have a number of unimplemented features.

      Is there a subset of JMS features that could be limited to that would allow me to use this alpha version safely? For instance, basic persistent queues and topics, temporary destinations and message expiry?

      The performance numbers are just too exciting to wait for the official release! :)

          Hi mmastrac-

          Thanks for your interest in JBM 2.0 :)

          We're very excited about it - it's going to form a key part of JBoss flagship products and we're confident it will take the market by storm.

          JBM 2.0 alpha is fully functional, it may well work for you, however it is an alpha and we wouldn't recommend you use any alpha (or beta for that matter) in production.

          As a JBoss / Red Hat employee it would be unprofessional for me to say otherwise, and we'd say the same for any product.

          Hope that helps :)

            Fair enough... I'll probably wait until at least the beta to do a real in-depth test.

            Your team's focus on testability is refreshing and greatly appreciated.

            Look forward to the next version and thanks for all the hard work,
            Matt.
