JMS is pretty simple, right? Once you’ve mastered topics and queues, the rest can appear trivial, but that isn’t the case. The queuing system, whether ActiveMQ, OpenMQ, or WebLogic JMS, provides many more features and settings than appear in the Java EE documentation. This session looks at some of the important extended features and configuration settings. What would you need to optimize if your messages are large or you need to minimize prefetching? What is the best way to implement time-delayed messages? The presentation also looks at dangerous bugs that can be introduced via simple misconfigurations with pooled beans. The JMS APIs are deceptively simple, but getting an implementation into production and tuned correctly can be a bit trickier.
