Habarisoft released new versions of Habari Client libraries for Delphi and Free Pascal application integration with popular free open source message brokers. This release has been tested with Apache ActiveMQ 5.14.5, Apache ActiveMQ Artemis 2.0, OpenMQ 5.1.1 and RabbitMQ 3.6.9. It contains enhancements and better test case organization of the included DUnit / FPCUnit test projects, which now prefer Stomp 1.2 over Stomp 1.0. It also introduces the IConnectionInfo interface, which returns broker version string and Stomp version of the current connection. Starting with this release, the library requires Delphi 2009 or Free Pascal 3.0.2 (or newer), it is not compatible with non-Unicode versions of Delphi. The internal version numbers of all client libraries in the 2017.04 release is 5.0.0.
Habari Client libraries enable Object Pascal applications to take advantage of message broker / message queue technology – which is distributed, loosely coupled, reliable and asynchronous – to build integrated systems, using peer-to-peer and publish-subscribe communication models.
About the Apache ActiveMQ free open source message broker
Apache ActiveMQ™ is the most popular and powerful open source messaging and Integration Patterns server. Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4. Apache ActiveMQ is released under the Apache 2.0 License.
One outstanding feature of the popular Apache ActiveMQ message broker is its rich message conversioncapability, which allows cross-platform/cross-language exchange by serialization of JMS object and map messages to XML or JSON. Non-Java clients do not have to support the native ActiveMQ wire protocol. Instead, they can use a simple protocol such as STOMP.
