Chapter 5. Configuration options

This chapter lists the available configuration options for AMQ Core Protocol JMS.

JMS configuration options are set as query parameters on the connection URI. For more information, see Section 4.3, “Connection URIs”.

5.1. General options

user
The user name the client uses to authenticate the connection.
password
The password the client uses to authenticate the connection.
clientID
The client ID that the client applies to the connection.
groupID
The group ID that the client applies to all produced messages.
autoGroup
If enabled, generate a random group ID and apply it to all produced messages.
preAcknowledge
If enabled, acknowledge messages as soon as they are sent and before delivery is complete. This provides "at most once" delivery. It is disabled by default.
blockOnDurableSend
If enabled, when sending non-transacted durable messages, block until the remote peer acknowledges receipt. It is enabled by default.
blockOnNonDurableSend
If enabled, when sending non-transacted non-durable messages, block until the remote peer acknowledges receipt. It is disabled by default.
blockOnAcknowledge
If enabled, when acknowledging non-transacted received messages, block until the remote peer confirms acknowledgment. It is disabled by default.
callTimeout
The time in milliseconds to wait for a blocking call to complete. The default is 30000 (30 seconds).
callFailoverTimeout
When the client is in the process of failing over, the time in millisconds to wait before starting a blocking call. The default is 30000 (30 seconds).
ackBatchSize
The number of bytes a client can receive and acknowledge before the acknowledgement is sent to the broker. The default is 1048576 (1 MiB).
dupsOKBatchSize
When using the DUPS_OK_ACKNOWLEDGE acknowledgment mode, the size in bytes of acknowledgment batches. The default is 1048576 (1 MiB).
transactionBatchSize
When receiving messsages in a transaction, the size in bytes of acknowledgment batches. The default is 1048576 (1 MiB).
cacheDestinations
If enabled, cache destination lookups. It is disabled by default.

5.2. TCP options

tcpNoDelay
If enabled, do not delay and buffer TCP sends. It is enabled by default.
tcpSendBufferSize
The send buffer size in bytes. The default is 32768 (32 KiB).
tcpReceiveBufferSize
The receive buffer size in bytes. The default is 32768 (32 KiB).
writeBufferLowWaterMark
The limit in bytes below which the write buffer becomes writable. The default is 32768 (32 KiB).
writeBufferHighWaterMark
The limit in bytes above which the write buffer becomes non-writable. The default is 131072 (128 KiB).

5.3. SSL/TLS options

sslEnabled
If enabled, use SSL/TLS to authenticate and encrypt connections. It is disabled by default.
keyStorePath
The path to the SSL/TLS key store. A key store is required for mutual SSL/TLS authentication. If unset, the value of the javax.net.ssl.keyStore system property is used.
keyStorePassword
The password for the SSL/TLS key store. If unset, the value of the javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword system property is used.
trustStorePath
The path to the SSL/TLS trust store. If unset, the value of the javax.net.ssl.trustStore system property is used.
trustStorePassword
The password for the SSL/TLS trust store. If unset, the value of the javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword system property is used.
trustAll
If enabled, trust the provided server certificate implicitly, regardless of any configured trust store. It is disabled by default.
verifyHost
If enabled, verify that the connection hostname matches the provided server certificate. It is disabled by default.
enabledCipherSuites
A comma-separated list of cipher suites to enable. If unset, the JVM default ciphers are used.
enabledProtocols
A comma-separated list of SSL/TLS protocols to enable. If unset, the JVM default protocols are used.

5.4. Failover options

initialConnectAttempts
The number of reconnect attempts allowed before the first successful connection and before the client discovers the broker topology. The default is 0, meaning only one attempt is allowed.
failoverOnInitialConnection
If enabled, attempt to connect to the backup server if the initial connection fails. It is disabled by default.
reconnnectAttempts
The number of reconnect attempts allowed before reporting the connection as failed. The default is -1, meaning no limit.
retryInterval
The time in milliseconds between reconnect attempts. The default is 2000 (2 seconds).
retryIntervalMultiplier
The multiplier used to grow the retry interval. The default is 1.0, meaning equal intervals.
maxRetryInterval
The maximum time in milliseconds between reconnect attempts. The default is 2000 (2 seconds).
ha
If enabled, track changes in the topology of HA brokers. The host and port from the URI is used only for the initial connection. After initial connection, the client receives the current failover endpoints and any updates resulting from topology changes. It is disabled by default.
connectionTTL
The time in milliseconds after which the connection is failed if the server sends no ping packets. The default is 60000 (1 minute). -1 disables the timeout.
confirmationWindowSize
The size in bytes of the command replay buffer. This is used for automatic session re-attachment on reconnect. The default is -1, meaning no automatic re-attachment.
clientFailureCheckPeriod
The time in milliseconds between checks for dead connections. The default is 30000 (30 seconds). -1 disables checking.

5.5. Flow control options

For more information, see Chapter 8, Flow control.

consumerWindowSize
The size in bytes of the per-consumer message prefetch buffer. The default is 1048576 (1 MiB). -1 means no limit. 0 disables prefetching.
consumerMaxRate
The maximum number of messages to consume per second. The default is -1, meaning no limit.
producerWindowSize
The requested size in bytes for credit to produce more messages. This limits the total amount of data in flight at one time. The default is 1048576 (1 MiB). -1 means no limit.
producerMaxRate
The maximum number of messages to produce per second. The default is -1, meaning no limit.

5.6. Load balancing options

useTopologyForLoadBalancing
If enabled, use the cluster topology for connection load balancing. It is enabled by default.
connectionLoadBalancingPolicyClassName
The class name of the connection load balancing policy. The default is org.apache.activemq.artemis.api.core.client.loadbalance.RoundRobinConnectionLoadBalancingPolicy.

5.7. Large message options

The client can enable large message support by setting a value for the property minLargeMessageSize. Any message larger than minLargeMessageSize is considered a large message.

minLargeMessageSize
The minimum size in bytes at which a message is treated as a large message. The default is 102400 (100 KiB).
compressLargeMessages

If enabled, compress large messages, as defined by minLargeMessageSize. It is disabled by default.

Note

If the compressed size of a large message is less than the value of minLargeMessageSize, the message is sent as a regular message. Therefore, it is not written to the broker’s large-message data directory.

5.8. Threading options

useGlobalPools
If enabled, use one pool of threads for all ConnectionFactory instances. Otherwise, use a separate pool for each instance. It is enabled by default.
threadPoolMaxSize
The maximum number of threads in the general thread pool. The default is -1, meaning no limit.
scheduledThreadPoolMaxSize
The maximum number of threads in the thread pool for scheduled operations. The default is 5.
