Subject Re: How to support add a new broker in Geronimo 3.0
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2011 05:15:29 GMT
>From the responses in the user mail list, we do find that there is people
using it. Our default ActiveMQ broker only contains some basic
configurations, it seems to me just like a demo. But I agree that this is
not of high priority, we might wait for some time to decide how to implement
it after some changes in Geronimo kernel. For now, think that we could just
try to make those broker info is listed, such as connector info, broker
name, etc.
