Hi there, Open MQ Users,
We are pleased to announce the general release of GlassFish Open MQ 5.0. This release is the first JMS 2.0 compliant messaging system. JMS 2.0 is the first revision to this key integration specification in 10 years and brings exciting simplification and scalability to the JMS specification.

This release includes new features described in the JMS 2.0 Specification, including:
  • Simplified JMS 2.0 API
    • Introduces a new JMSContext object which simplifies the programming necessary for common messaging tasks
    • Provides for injection via JMSContext when deployed into a Java EE 7 compliant application server such as Oracle GlassFish Server
  • New methods to operate on message bodies
    • Ability to extract and receive bodies directly
  • Easier methods to create and use JMS Sessions
  • For Java EE users
    • Default connection factory resources so you can use JMS with much less setup overhead
    • Alignment with Java EE injection, you can now define many messaging properties via injection or adding these to your deployment descriptors as standard XML elements
  • For Java SE users
    • Scalable topic consumers which allows for more than one consumer on a topic
  • Delivery Delay -- Publish a message and specify a future time, or delay, for your message to be delivered
  • Unblocking message send -- Provides for improved scaling
  • Improved bad message handling -- which provides a standard way to reject malformed messages
In addition to the new JMS 2.0 features, Oracle Open Message Queue 5.0 also includes:
  • Port unification -- you can use the same port for multiple messaging protocols
  • SSL support for the GlassFish MQ Portmapper, service discovery feature.
  • Improvements in HA JDBC operations including better retry support for MySQL and Oracle RAC databases
  • Logging alignment with Oracle GlassFish Enterprise Server
