Subject Re: The future of the ActiveMQ C++ clients
Date Wed, 31 May 2006 22:37:55 GMT
Hey guys,
I've been working with a co-worker on a new c++ client that will replace CMS
and will truly support a pluggable protocol.  We based much of the code off
of the .NET client, but had to do some rearranging to get rid of protocol
dependencies in the code.  We're nearing completion and have a full suite of
CppUnit tests to go along with it.  The code base should be able to easily
support the OpenWire protocol as well (something CMS would have had some
heartburn with).

Up until now, Tim and I have just been working in secrecy off of our own svn
repo, since he doesn't have commit access to AMQ.  But we should have things
to a decent state fairly soon (a couple of weeks, perhaps).  The first pass
will only have STOMP implemented, but I was hoping that once we get our
stuff into Apache that you other guys (Mats?) might give us a hand plugging
in a connector for OpenWire?

If anyone is interested, we can pass along a snapshot of our code base so
you can take a peek.
