NOTICE: JBossMQ will be replaced by JBoss Messaging in JBoss AS 5.0.
Go to JBossMessaging Wiki for more information on JBoss Messaging.
JBossMQ will still be supported for at least two years after the final JBoss4 release, which probably means it be supported until around JBoss7 time.
What is JBossMQ?
It allows asynchronous delivery of messages in distributed systems with optional QOS parameters
like persistence, guaranteed delivery or transactions.
JBoss-4.x supports the JMS1.1 version of the spec.
JBoss-3.2.x supports the JMS1.0.2b spec (from 3.2.8 it also supports JMS1.1).
It supports two messaging styles:
Queue where a message is received by one client.
Topic where a message is "broadcast" to multiple client subscribers.
NOTE: JMS1.1 includes a combined model of Queue/Topic connections that can be used for both styles.
FireAndForget for asynchronous delivery.
Pluggable Invocation Layers to support different transport mechanisms, including http, rmi, tcp/ip and in memory invocations.
Pluggable Security to support different security mechanisms.
Pluggable Persistence to support different persistence mechanisms.
High Availability in a clustered environment.
