Enhancements / Improvements

  • CLI: Support for Jline added to provide a command history, command line editing and password character masking.
  • CLI: Support for CLI command aliases added, including new CLI commands alist , aset , adel and asave .

  • CLI: New copy command to copy messages between destinations.
  • CLI: New move command to move messages between destinations.
  • CLI: New sum command to aggregate property values of an entity list.
  • CLI: New echo command to enable basic output formatting for CLI scripts.

  • CLI: Display number of entities as a result of "lc" command.
  • CLI: Display of "help" output improved.
  • JMS Client (producers): System property swiftmq.jms.objectmessage.buffersize can now be used to set the buffer size in bytes for ObjectMessage.setObject(object) to enable faster serialization of large objects.
  • JMS Client: JMS Pooling for Spring's JmsTemplate and plain JMS added.
  • Threadpool Swiftlet: The change of the value of "max-threads" of kernel pools is now possible without requiring a router reboot.
  • Topic Manager: New mode (and attribute) Direct Subscriber Selection to select subscribers directly via a publisher topic.


  • JCA: Ignore setLogWriter in any JCA class if the resource adapter property "Debug" is false. This is a workaround for this JBoss bug.
  • JMS: A clustered queue destination, which was created with session.createQueue, will not throw a "Consumer not local" exception anymore.

  • JMS Client: MessageConsumer.receive() does not return after the reconnector reaches max retries.
  • JMS Swiftlet: Collecting of the number msgs/sec (to display in SwiftMQ Explorer) consumes too much cpu.
  • JSSE: Static reference to Sun's security provider removed. Security provider is now configurable via system properties and .
