Spring Book – Chapter 6 – Enterprise Integration


The org.springframework.jms.connection.CachingConnectionFactory is meant to wrap a JMS provider’s connection to provide caching of sessions, connections and producers as well as automatic connection recovery. By default, it uses a single session to create many connections and this model works very well. If you need to scale further, you can also specify the number of sessions to cache using the sessionCacheSize property.

Listing 6-2 below demonstrates the configuration for the CachingConnectionFactory using ActiveMQ.

Sending messages

For making the example simple we will send the traditional “Hello Spring” message. Listing 6-3 show usage of JmsTemplate to send messages.

Listing 6-3. Using JmsTemplate to send message using Spring JMS

The class MySender class needs to be aware of two things; one is the destination object where the message has to be sent and the other being the JmsTemplate object that simplifies the process of sending the message.

The sending of the message is defined by the method JmsTemplate.send() that takes two arguments. The first argument is the message destination and the second argument is the message creator object that knows how to create a message that can be sent later.

Receiving messages

Receiving the message from the Message Broker is as simple as sending the message which we saw in the previous topic. Listing 6-4 show usage of JmsTemplate which is used to receive message.
