    GUI web Console

    Yair Ogen Expert

      Does anyone know of a web tool that acts as an admin facade for Hornet?

       

      Assume I am not using JBoss. Usig Java SE and spring. i'm looking for something similar to web console that is shipped with ActiveMQ.

       

      Thanks,

          Yair,

              Whilst I don't have a web console option to answer your question, I have built an thick client GUI tool (rockeye) for hornetq which will most of things you would want to with an admin console. I am actively adding new features every few weeks. It is a commercial app, but personal licenses are reasonably priced, and there is a 60-day trial. A new version,deployed today can be found at:

            all management functionality is exposed via JMX so you can use any JMX client, JConsole for instance.

              Thanks. I find it strange that there is no web interface public like in ActiveMQ. JMX via Jconsole is hardly what I wuold expect site engineers to do on site. What is the standard for creating Queues etc. (as dynamic creation of queue/topic is not supported in Hornet)?

                As far as I'm aware the ActiveMQ web interface is a web application that runs in a web server (it uses jetty i think). If your doing that then why not run HornetQ in jboss and use the admin console or the web jmx console, both work well.

                Im not sure what you mean with this question,dynamically as in create when needed or dynamically via a management interface? if the latter we do.

                  Running an AS just for defining Queues seems to me as an over kill when one is running Java SE, no?

                  I mean "create if does not exist" - if this was supported one could manage without JMX API.

                    Hi Yair,

                    How did you manage with that ? have you found some reliable open source GUI for hornetQ?

                     

                    thanks,
