Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-3042) Default broker name to be machine's hostname
Date Thu, 18 Nov 2010 20:03:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-3042?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=63405#action_63405

James Green commented on AMQ-3042:
----------------------------------

Which is why the AMQ config itself needs to be neutral, being fed a variable set consistently
from platform-dependant bootstrap scripts. I am not aware of another way but I know next to
nothing about spring's capabilities either.

>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Broker
>    Affects Versions: 5.4.1
>            Reporter: James Green
>            Priority: Trivial

> In many scenarios, including ours, there is one AMQ broker per host. They connect to
each other but must have unique brokerName values.
> It would therefore make sense to send into AMQ at launch the current hostname and refer
to this for the value instead of the literal value "localhost".
> This would lend itself to invoking lots of new broker hosts within a virtualised environment
with reduced configuration work.
> The init.d script could have two lines added:
> ACTIVEMQ_HOSTNAME=`hostname`
> ACTIVEMQ_OPTS="-Denv.hostname=$ACTIVEMQ_HOSTNAME"
> The activemq.xml file that ships default could then read:
>     <!--
>         The <broker> element is used to configure the ActiveMQ broker.
>     -->
>     <broker xmlns="http://activemq.apache.org/schema/core" brokerName="${env.hostname}"
dataDirectory="${activemq.base}/data" destroyApplicationContextOnStop="true">
> Unsure about other platforms but that works for linux.
