As part of the FuseSource acquisition, Red Hat now supports Apache ActiveMQ as the recently released Red Hat JBoss A-MQ product.

ActiveMQ is the most widely used message-oriented middleware that uses messaging to connect remote applications written in Java, C/C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, and many other languages. ActiveMQ is standards based and supports messaging protocols such as AMQP 1.0, WebSockets, Stomp, OpenWire, and MQTT.

In this session, Rob Davies will discuss the product’s features and functionality, and demonstrate connectivity from a microprocessor to web sockets using JBoss A-MQ.


Rob Davies is the technical director for Fuse engineering at Red Hat, focusing on next-generation, open source middleware products. Prior to this role, Robert was the CTO of FuseSource and has 20 years of experience architecting solutions and developing products for large-scale, distributed applications for the telecommunications and finance industries. Rob was the co-founder and contributor to Apache ActiveMQ, ServiceMix, and Camel.

‘Problem Solving’ Sessions

Following your suggestions, we’re introducing the new Problem Solving panel sessions which give you an opportunity to discuss various JBoss-related problems you may want to share and discuss with the rest of the JBUG members. If you want to ask others for help and advice, discuss the issues, listen to suggestions and find the solutions – let us know! Email your topic to [masked] and we will be more than happy to add your session to the agenda.

Lightning Talks

We are also opening up the floor to anyone using JBoss who has a tale to share. We are looking for a number of lightning talks 5 - 10 minutes in length where you can share your experiences, problems or wonderful solutions with the rest of the community. This is a huge opportunity to develop new or hone existing speaking skills!If you are interested, please send the title of your talk to [masked] .
