    JBoss Messaging 2.0 beta released

    Tim Fox Master

      The JBoss messaging team are pleased to announce the release of JBoss Messaging 2.0 Beta.

      JBoss Messaging 2.0 brings astonishing performance and a huge feature set, in an all-new architecture.

      With a focus on usability we've provided an extensive, easy-to-understand user-manual and quick-start guide and we ship with over 50 ready-to-run examples (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/examples.html) out of the box, demonstrating everything from simple JMS usage to complex clusters of servers and more exotic functionality.

      Here are just a few of the highlights:

      * Elegant POJO based design with minimal third party dependencies: Run JBoss Messaging 2.0 as a stand-alone messaging broker, run it in integrated in your favourite JEE application server, or run it embedded inside your own application. (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/architecture.html)

      * Incredible performance. Our unique ultra-high performance journal provides astonishing persistent messaging performance. Our NIO transport using Netty provides great performance on the wire. (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/persistence.html)

      * Huge feature set - all the features you'd expect in any serious messaging system, and others you won't find anywhere else.

      * Massively flexible clustering (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/clusters.html)

      * Seamless high availability. (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/ha.html)

      * Huge message support. (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/large-messages.html)

      * Extensive management API. (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/management.html)

      * I could go on... (http://www.jboss.org/file-access/default/members/jbossmessaging/freezone/docs/usermanual-2.0.0.beta1/html/index.html)

      JBM 2.0 beta will be included in EAP 5.0 as a technology preview.

      After beta, we hope to release GA within the next couple of months.

      Later releases of JBM 2 will be included as the Java messaging broker in JBoss EAP and JBoss SOA-P.

      Thanks to the team (Andy, Clebert, Jeff and Howard) for the Herculean effort they have made against the odds in getting us to this point!
