Chapter 3. Deprecated features

This section describes features that have been deprecated from AMQ Broker.

Hawtio dispatch console plugin
Starting in 7.3, AMQ Broker no longer ships with the Hawtio dispatch console plugin, dispatch-hawtio-console.war. Previously, the dispatch console was used to manage AMQ Interconnect. However, AMQ Interconnect now uses its own, standalone web console.
Network pinger
Starting in 7.5, network pinging is a deprecated feature. Network pinging cannot protect a broker cluster from network isolation issues that can lead to irrecoverable message loss. This feature will be removed in a future release. Red Hat continues to support existing AMQ Broker deployments that use network pinging. However, Red Hat no longer recommends use of network pinging in new deployments. For guidance on configuring a broker cluster for high availability and to avoid network isolation issues, see Implementing high availability in Configuring AMQ Broker..
Application templates for AMQ Broker on OpenShift Container Platform
Starting in 7.8, the use of application templates for deploying AMQ Broker on OpenShift Container Platform is a deprecated feature. This feature will be removed in a future release. Red Hat continues to support existing deployments that are based on application templates. However, Red Hat does not recommend using application templates for new deployments. For new deployments, Red Hat recommends using the AMQ Broker Operator. For information on installing and deploying the Operator, see Deploying AMQ Broker on OpenShift Container Platform using the AMQ Broker Operator in Deploying AMQ Broker on OpenShift.
