Getting started with HornetQ in less than five minutes

Version 1

    Usability and simplicity are core design principles with HornetQ.


    We hope that our documentation is clear and easy to understand and structured in a task driven way, not as a long list of reference parameters. We're sure it's not perfect yet either but it will get even better over time.


    We also ship HornetQ with over 65 ready-to-run examples straight out of the box. So you can quickly get to grips with working with HornetQ using real working examples.


    (Take a look at the quick start guide for exact instructions on how to get up and running in five minutes or less)


    In short, basically you just need to:


    1. Download HornetQ
    2. Unzip HornetQ
    3. cd bin
    4. ./ (or run.bat on Windows)
    5. Now the server is running, let's run an example
    6. cd examples/jms/queue
    7. ant


    Any questions, or problems then ping us on irc (irc:// or drop a message at the user forums.


    That's it.
