Apache Qpid Broker-J

The Apache Qpid Broker-J is a powerful open-source message broker.

  • Supports Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) versions 0-8, 0-9, 0-91, 0-10 and 1.0
  • 100% Java implementation
  • Authentication options include for LDAP, Kerberos, O-AUTH2, TLS client-authentication and more
  • Message storage options include Apache Derby, Oracle BDB JE, and Generic JDBC
  • REST and AMQP 1.0 management API
  • Web-management console
  • Plug-able architecture

Below are some quick pointers you might find useful.

Building the code

The project requires Maven 3. Some example commands follow.

Clean previous builds output and install all modules to local repository without running the tests:

mvn clean install -DskipTests

Install all modules to the local repository after running all the tests:

mvn clean install

Running the tests

Maven profiles are used to run tests for the supported protocols and storage options. Profile names follow the form java-store.n-n, where store signifies the storage module and n-n the AMQP protocol version number.

For store, the options include:

  • bdb - Oracle BDB JE
  • dby - Apache Derby
  • mms - an in-memory store principally used for testing.

If no profile is explicitly selected, java-mms-1.0 is activated by default.

mvn verify

To activate a BDB with AMQP 1.0 protocol use:

mvn verify -P java-bdb.1-0

To see all the available profiles.

mvn help:all-profiles

When activating AMQP 0-8..0-10 profiles, it is also necessary to pass the system property -DenableAmqp0-x

mvn verify -P java-dby.0-9-1 -DenableAmqp0-x

Perform a subset of tests on the packaged release artifacts without installing:

mvn verify -Dtest=TestNamePattern* -DfailIfNoTests=false

Execute the tests and produce code coverage report:

mvn clean test jacoco:report
