          this is awesome-sauce.  I have been playing with this interface for a few days now.  One question I had was about the deployment of the rest interface in an existing hornetq deployment (not bootstrapping one inside the war).  I have a jboss6 instance with hornetq and some queues defined and it looks to me like when I add the rest war into that environment that the war uses the RestMessagingBootstrapListener to set up a brand new manager for queues and topics that is seperate from the existing hornetq deployment that was already there.  i.e. when the queuemanager is asked for a list of queues none of the existing ones defined on the hornetq instance in jboss6 are listed.  I can remote debug and inspect that manager and confirm that it is an empty arraylist of queues being returned.  That makes sense to me when I look at QueueServiceManager and it creates a new ArrayList in its default constructor.  Is this the intended behavior?  Am I to assume that the rest interface is an island unto itself and has its own queues and topics?, or have a been an oblivious consumer and missed some spot where I tell it where the configs are for the existing hornetq installation?  I also considered that this is a beta release and that is just a linkage that is not in place yet.  Either way great stuff  thanks for the beta releases.

            HornetQ REST is not an island and can be used with an existing deployment (Well it is intended to be, maybe you've run ito a bug).


            You do not see anything in QueueServiceManager because it is populated on-demand.  Just do a REST call to /queues/{queue-name} and it will use a local ConnectionFactory to find the queue.


            Maybe you are just not referencing it correctly within the URL?  If you have a hornetq-jms.xml file that defines a queue:


            <queue name="orders">

                    <entry name="/queues/orders"/>



            It would be referenced as "/queues/jms.queue.orders"


            Please let me know if you have any problems.

              Doh!!! yep oblivious consumer here.  I wasn't adding the "jms.queue.".  Awesome, that works.  Thanks!
