Adding a JMS Queue to Wildfly 8.x

The messaging subsystem in Wildfly is enabled in the standalone-full.xml config (not standalone.xml).

To add a new queue, search forĀ <subsystem xmlns=”urn:jboss:domain:messaging:2.0″>, and then within theĀ <hornetq-server> section, add a new <jms-destinations> if it doesn’t exist already, and define your queue name and JNDI lookup:

    <jms-queue name="exampleQueue">
        <entry name="jms/queue/example"/>
        <entry name="java:jboss/exported/jms/queue/example"/>


James Gosling at JavaOne 2014 vs JavaOne 2009

JavaOne 2014 wrapped up today, and was another great year, with plenty of awesome sessions. James Gosling played an active part in the Q&A during the Community Keynote this morning, and also gave a retrospective of the development of Java. He was wearing one of his Nighthacks Diner shirts, which I think we’re given out as a special prize at a JavaOne several years back (based on the painting by Edward Hopper, ‘Nighthawks Diner’). I seem to remember the design on this particular shirt, so did some digging in my photos from JavaOne conferences in the past, and here you go:

This is from JavaOne 2009 – I believe James was visiting some of the exhibitions in the Exhibition Hall:


And from this morning during the Community Keynote:
