8.2. Connecting to a Broker

Overview

This section describes how to connect a client to a broker. In order to connect to a JBoss MQ broker, you need to know its group name. Every MQ broker is associated with a group when it is created: if none is specified explicitly, it automatically gets associated with the default group.

Client URL

To connect to an MQ broker, the client must specify a discovery URL, in the following format:
discovery:(fabric:GroupName)
For example, to connect to a broker associated with the default group, the client would use the following URL:
discovery:(fabric:default)
The connection factory then looks for available brokers in the group and connects the client to one of them.
