In order to enable the JMS transport and try out JMS samples, the ActiveMQ client libraries must be installed. In case any other JMS provider is used (e.g. Apache Qpid), install any necessary libraries and/or components.


Refer to Installation Prerequisites  for the list of all applications necessary to install and work with the WSO2 products you plan to use.

Follow the instructions below to install Apache ActiveMQ on Solaris.

Establish a SSH connection to the Linux machine or log in on the text Linux console. You should either log in as root or obtain root permissions after login via su or sudo command.

Step 1. Download the ActiveMQ

You can use wget to download the tar.gz file directly to your server:

Step 2. Extract Files

1. Extract the files from the GZIP file into a directory of your choice. For example:

Code Block
gunzip -c apache-activemq-5.5.0-bin.tar.gz |tar xvf -

2. If the ActiveMQ start-up script is not executable, change its permissions:

Code Block
chmod 755 activemq

Step 3. Run Apache ActiveMQ

From a command shell, run ActiveMQ:

Code Block
sh activemq start

Step 4. Testing the Installation

ActiveMQ's default port is 61616. From another window, run netstat and search for port 61616.

Code Block
netstat -an|grep 61616

The port should be opened and LISTEN on 61616.

Step 5. Monitoring ActiveMQ

There are various ways to monitor ActiveMQ. If you are on version 4.2 or later of ActiveMQ, you can then monitor ActiveMQ using the Web Console by pointing your browser at:

Code Block

Or you can use the JMX support to view the running state of ActiveMQ.
