We are currently using 4.2.3 where the JMS infrastructure was ported to use jboss messaging.
We need to migrate to a higher JBOSS version, mainly due to licensing issues.
We also need to work with a version that has an EAP twin - which leaves us with the following versions
7.1 -we need this version specifically since we need to connect to a queue from a standalone client using JNDI
on top of all, we need to move to production around July.
So now comes my question:
in this point in time, what would you recommend me to do - migrate to 5.1, that is stable or trust that 7.1 final will be released as planned at the beginning of February and I will be able to reach production on July?
I know that no one can give me guarantees here, but am just looking for some more things to take into considerations when I make my decision.
7.1 looks promising, and I couldn't find enough comparisons to know if 5.1 might be a suitable solution.
