We managed to keep our goal of making more frequent releases and today we’re happy to announce Apache ActiveMQ 5.7.0. The main goal of this release was Java 7 compatibility. The project is built using JDK 6, but it’s tested to work properly with Java 7. This was needed as we now use Camel 2.10, which also added support for Java 7.

Besides this, there’s a couple of new features and close to two hundred bug fixes in this release. Some of the prominent new features are:

  • Secure WebSocket (wss) transport – which means that you can now securely connect to the broker directly from your browser. You can find more information about it here

  • Broker Redelivery – which allows you to define redelivery policy such that broker will resend a message to a different consumer in case that processing fails. Here you can find more information on when you’d want to use this feature and how.

We also improved our storage locking mechanism, so now it’s completely pluggable. This means that locking is not tied to the store itself, but it’s separately configured. And also you can tune it or implement new locking strategies to suit your environment. We also provided a new database locker, called Lease Database Locker, which should do much better job for JDBC master slave scenarios.

So, that’s about it. Give 5.7.0 a try and let us know what do you want to see in 5.8.0.

And while I have your attention, there’re two upcoming sessions where you can learn more about ActiveMQ:
