JMS Connector – Mule 4

In this tutorial we will talk about how to use JMS connector with Apache ActiveMQ with various use cases and scenarios. Anypoint Connector for JMS (Java Message Service) (JMS Connector) enables sending and receiving messages to queues and topics for any message service that implements the JMS specification. JMS is a widely used API for message-oriented middleware. It enables the communication between different components of a distributed application to be loosely coupled, reliable, and asynchronous. The main features of JMS Connector include:

  • Publish and subscribe pattern support on any given destination
  • Listen and reply pattern support on any given destination
  • Publish and consume pattern support on any given destination, with a fixed or temporary reply queue
