Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1241) Make WebConsole run as a standalone WAR
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 09:47:04 GMT


I would like to use this patch.
I patch my files but on run I get a security error on activeMQ connection.
Where can I specify username & passwords ? (those I specified in JCOnsole)
