Chapter 2. Installation

This chapter guides you through the steps to install AMQ Core Protocol JMS in your environment.

2.1. Prerequisites

  • You must have a subscription to access AMQ release files and repositories.
  • To build programs with AMQ Core Protocol JMS, you must install Apache Maven.
  • To use AMQ Core Protocol JMS, you must install Java.

2.2. Using the Red Hat Maven repository

Configure your Maven environment to download the client library from the Red Hat Maven repository.

Procedure

  1. Add the Red Hat repository to your Maven settings or POM file. For example configuration files, see Section B.1, “Using the online repository”.

    <repository>
      <id>red-hat-ga</id>
      <url>https://maven.repository.redhat.com/ga</url>
    </repository>
  2. Add the library dependency to your POM file.

    <dependency>
      <groupId>org.apache.activemq</groupId>
      <artifactId>artemis-jms-client</artifactId>
      <version>2.11.0.redhat-00005</version>
    </dependency>

The client is now available in your Maven project.

2.3. Installing a local Maven repository

As an alternative to the online repository, AMQ Core Protocol JMS can be installed to your local filesystem as a file-based Maven repository.

Procedure

  1. Use your subscription to download the AMQ Broker 7.6.0 Maven repository .zip file.
  2. Extract the file contents into a directory of your choosing.

    On Linux or UNIX, use the unzip command to extract the file contents.

    $ unzip amq-broker-7.6.0-maven-repository.zip

    On Windows, right-click the .zip file and select Extract All.

  3. Configure Maven to use the repository in the maven-repository directory inside the extracted install directory. For more information, see Section B.2, “Using a local repository”.

2.4. Installing the examples

Procedure

  1. Use your subscription to download the AMQ Broker 7.6.0 .zip file.
  2. Extract the file contents into a directory of your choosing.

    On Linux or UNIX, use the unzip command to extract the file contents.

    $ unzip amq-broker-7.6.0.zip

    On Windows, right-click the .zip file and select Extract All.

    When you extract the contents of the .zip file, a directory named amq-broker-7.6.0 is created. This is the top-level directory of the installation and is referred to as <install-dir> throughout this document.
