Chapter 3. Deprecated features

This section describes features that are supported, but have been deprecated from AMQ Broker.

OpenWire protocol
Starting in 7.9, the OpenWire protocol is a deprecated feature. If you are creating a new AMQ Broker-based system, use one of the other supported protocols. This feature will be removed in a future release.
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..
