Message Manager 3.1 released

February 13th, 2018 2 comments

It’s been a while since I released a new version, but here is version 3.1 of Message Manager. It contains the following changes:

  • Support for Solace messaging
  • There is now a search box that allows you search through message headers, properties, message body and all parts of a SonicMQ multi-part message. (#35)
  • There is a Swing Look and Feel selector in the settings tab (requires restart)
  • Fix display of large message sizes in queues table (#22)
  • Added JMSPriority field to message sender

If you are already running version 3.0, your application will automatically upgrade. If not, click run Message Manager 3.1 to download and run the new version.


Support for Solace messaging is now available in the nightly build

February 16th, 2017 Comments off

The nightly build of Message Manager now has support for Solace messaging. Please give it a try if you are interested. This is a very early version of the Solace support and it will have bugs, probably many.

Click here to run MessageManager 3.1-SNAPSHOT

To be safe, make a backup of your configuration file for safety, you can find that in the following location depending on your operating system:

Operating System Location
Windows %APPDATA%\MessageManager\config.xml
Mac OS X ~/Library/Application Support/MessageManager/config.xml
Linux ~/.config/MessageManager/config.xml

If you have previously installed a nightly build, please refer to the above table and delete the “plugins/3.1-SNAPSHOT” directory in that same location before running this new build. The naming of the plugin jar files has changed and there may be conflicts if you have had previous versions installed.

When you find any bugs, please report them.
