Spring Boot Auto-Configuration for the Solace JMS

This project provides Spring Boot Auto-Configuration and an associated Spring Boot Started for the Solace JMS API. The goal of this project is to make it easy to use Solace JMS within a Spring application so you can take advantage of all the benefits of Spring Boot auto-configuration.

For a high level introduction and explanation, you can also refer to the following blog post: https://solace.com/blog/devops/solace-jms-meet-spring-boot-starters



As stated this project provides a Spring Boot Auto-Configuration implementation and a Spring Boot Starter pom for the Solace JMS API. The goal of this project is to make it easier to use Solace JMS within Spring.

The artifacts are published to Maven Central so it should be familiar and intuitive to use this project in your applications. Currently this project is still experimental and as such you may find that many Solace JMS properties are not yet supported. If you find Solace JMS properties that this project does not yet support, simply raise an issue and we'll look into adding this support or submit a pull request with the update.

Using Auto-Configuration in your App

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration for the Solace JMS supports both programmatic creation or JNDI lookup of JMS objects. To learn more about JNDI refer to the Obtaining JMS objects using JNDI tutorial.

Programmatic creation of JMS objects

See the associated solace-jms-sample-app for an example of how this is all put together in a simple application. To use Solace JMS you need to do these steps:

  1. Update your build.
  2. Autowire the ConnectionFactory.
  3. Configure the application to use a Solace PubSub+ service.

JNDI lookup of JMS objects

See the associated solace-jms-sample-app-jndi for an example. To use JNDI with Solace JMS you need to do these steps:

  1. Update your build.
  2. Autowire the JndiTemplate for further use e.g.: in a JndiObjectFactoryBean.
  3. Configure the application to use a Solace PubSub+ service.

Updating your build

This releases from this project are hosted in Maven Central

The easiest way to get started is to include the solace-jms-spring-boot-starter in your application. For an examples see the JMS Sample App in this project.

Here is how to include the spring boot starter in your project using Gradle and Maven.

Using it with Gradle


Using it with Maven


Configure the Application to use your Solace PubSub+ Service Credentials

Deploying your Application to a Cloud Platform

By using Spring Cloud Connectors, this library can automatically configure a ConnectionFactory and/or a JndiTemplate using the detected Solace PubSub+ services when deployed on a Cloud Platform such as Cloud Foundry.

Currently, the Solace Cloud Foundry Cloud Connector is the only connector that is supported by default in this library, but could easily be augmented by adding your own Solace Spring Cloud Connectors as dependencies to the auto-configuration's POM.

For example:


Exposing a Solace PubSub+ Service Manifest in the Application's Environment

Configuration of the ConnectionFactory and/or the JndiTemplate can be done through exposing a Solace PubSub+ service manifest to the application's JVM properties or OS environment.

For example, you can set a SOLCAP_SERVICES variable in either your JVM properties or OS's environment to directly contain a VCAP_SERVICES-formatted manifest file. In which case, the autoconfigure will pick up any Solace PubSub+ services in it and use them to accordingly configure your JmsTemplate.

The properties provided by this externally-provided manifest can also be augmented using the values from the application's properties file.

For details on valid manifest formats and other ways of exposing Solace service manifests to your application, see the Manifest Load Order and Expected Formats section in the Solace Services Info project.

Updating your Application Properties

Alternatively, configuration of the JmsTemplate can also be entirely done through the application.properties file. This is where users can control the Solace JMS API properties. Currently this project supports direct configuration of the following properties:

# Following properties do not apply when using JNDI, see below.

Where reasonable, sensible defaults are always chosen. So a developer using a Solace PubSub+ message broker and wishing to use the default message-vpn must only set the solace.jms.host. When using JNDI, the configured connection factory properties on the Solace message router are taken as a starting point, including the clientName and directTransport configurations.

See SolaceJmsProperties for the most up to date list of directly configurable properties.

Any additional Solace JMS API properties can be set through configuring solace.jms.apiProperties.<Property> where <Property> is the name of the property as defined in the Solace JMS API documentation for com.solacesystems.jms.SupportedProperty, for example:


Note that the direct configuration of solace.jms. properties takes precedence over the solace.jms.apiProperties..

Building the Project Yourself

This project depends on maven for building. To build the jar locally, check out the project and build from source by doing the following:

git clone https://github.com/SolaceProducts/solace-jms-spring-boot.git
cd solace-jms-spring-boot
mvn package

This will build the auto-configuration jar and associated sample.

Note: As currently setup, the build requires Java 1.8. If you want to use another older version of Java adjust the build accordingly.

Running the Sample

The simplest way to run the sample is from the project root folder using maven. For example:

cd solace-jms-sample-app
mvn spring-boot:run


cd solace-jms-sample-app-jndi
mvn spring-boot:run
