Greater Florida Software Symposium
April 16 - 18, 2010 - Tampa, FL
Intro to Messaging Using JMS and ActiveMQ
More and more companies are using messaging as a means for heterogeneous communication, scalability, performance, and load balancing. Why? Because messaging provides asynchronous requests, guaranteed delivery, load balancing, and ease of development. In this session I will introduce some basic messaging fundamentals, then show how easy it is to send and receive messages using the JMS API. During this session I will also show how to setup and configure ActiveMQ, an open source enterprise-wide messaging provider. By attending this session you will see how easy messaging using JMS really is!
Agenda - Messaging Models - JMS Message Types - The JMS API - A Brief Tour - Installing and Configuring ActiveMQ - Sending and Receiving Messages using Point-to-Point - Sending and Receiving Messages using Publish-Subscribe
