Subject Re: Getting Geronimo to use an upcoming ActiveMQ 4.x release and the activemq-gbean & activemq-gbean-management modules
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2006 12:35:18 GMT
Cross posting to dev@geronimo so the Geronimo team is involved in 
discussions regarding ActiveMQ integration, as I don't think the missing 
gbean support in ActiveMQ 4.0 has been discussed on the Geronimo dev list.

The missing gbean support was a surprise to me as I wasn't expecting 
ActiveMQ 4.0 to be missing the functionality that it had in ActiveMQ 
3.2.1 currently used by Geronimo.  I was expecting 4.0 to almost be a 
drop in replacement, except for the change of package names.  I was 
hoping to play with a 4.0-RCx release with Geronimo.

I am concerned about Geronimo staying with a 3.2.x release when it has 
been mentioned that 4.0 should be more stable and a number of bugs in 
3.2.x have only been fixed in the 4.0 code.

Hiram, when you have an idea of the effort required to implement the 
GBeans support ActiveMQ 4.x let's discuss time frames for Geronimo to 
moving to an ASF hosted ActiveMQ release.
