The Apache ActiveMQ is a powerful messaging provider that supports many cross-language clients and protocols. In today’s environments, ActiveMQ provides a means for delivering messages reliably between diverse systems using a series of message brokers and queues.
The Apache ActiveMQ - Essentials training course provides a solid introduction to the theory and practice of applying ActiveMQ (AMQ) for brokered, reliable messaging. Detailed hands-on labs demonstrate installation, configuration, monitoring, and control of AMQ brokers. Examples of JMS functionality cover publish-subscribe and queue based messaging, persistence, and transactional messages. A variety of AMQ deployment options and topology options are also reviewed.
The Apache ActiveMQ - Advanced training course focuses on the advanced features of ActiveMQ, the inner-workings of ActiveMQ and many features and troubleshooting techniques that end-users will encounter in a production setting. This workshop examines topics such as monitoring, advanced configuration, tuning, advanced architectures from the client and broker, topologies, and failover.
- Install ActiveMQ and verify that it was installed successfully
- Install a custom instance of ActiveMQ
- Issue broker-control commands to list brokers, query a broker, and browse a queue
- View and debug the state of message flows in a development environment
- Safely listen behind firewalls for messages that work like commands
- Configure a JMX agent console to monitor, test, and control an AMQ implementation
- Configure an ActiveMQ broker to use different logging levels
- Configure a TCP, HTTP, SSL, or VM connector to expose broker connectivity to clients
- Configure a Network connector to enable brokers to communicate with other brokers
- Configure an ActiveMQ broker to support Java clients, Spring clients, client logging, and client transactions/acknowledgments
- Configure a set of MQ brokers to handle a simple high availability, master/slave, failover, or load-balanced implementation scenario
- Implement Virtual Destinations, Conduit Subscriptions, Message Groups, and transport-level security
- Describe how messages are dispatched and controlled
- Knowledge and modest proficiency with Java, experience with application development using Eclipse IDE, and basic understanding of distributed computing concepts.
- Basic understanding of distributed systems concepts (SOA, Web Services) and a solid understanding of JMS and ActiveMQ
