Monkey JMS

This is a Clojure library that provides wrapper code for JMS 3.


I've played around with Bowerick which is nice, but one the one hand it contains too much stuff I don't need (and hence, unwanted dependencies), and on the other hand doesn't provide functionality that I do need, like durable subscribers. So I decided to roll my own.


Include the dependency in your project:

{:deps {com.monkeyprojects/monkey-jms {:mvn/version "0.1.0-SNAPSHOT"}}}

Then require the namespace and you can create a connection (actually a JMSContext) and producers and/or consumers.

(require '[monkey.jms :as jms])

;; Connect.  The connection is auto-started.
(def ctx (jms/connect {:url "amqp://localhost:61616"
                       :username "testuser"
                       :password "verysecret"}))

;; Start consuming.  In this case, it will just print the received message.
(def consumer (jms/consume ctx "topic://test.topic" println))

;; Producer is a fn that can be closed
(def producer (jms/make-producer ctx "topic://test.topic"))
;; Send a message
(producer "Hi, I'm a test message")

;; Stop consuming and producing
(.close producer)
(.close consumer)
;; Close connection
(.close ctx)

Each of the objects implements AutoCloseable, so you can also use them in with-open.


For simplicity the are messages always TextMessages. But it's up to you what you put in those messages. You can compose the listener and producer to suit your needs. For example:

(require '[cheshire.core :as json])

;; Producer that encodes to json before sending
(def json-producer (comp producer json/generate-string))

;; Consumer that parses json
(def json-consumer (jms/consume ctx "topic://some.json.topic" (comp println json/parse-string)))

Maybe in a future version we will add the possibility for fine-grained control over the construction of messages.

Durable Consumers

You can also create durable consumers, first by specifying a client-id in the connection options, and then by specifying an id in the options to consume.

(def ctx (jms/connect {:url "amqp://localhost:61616"
                       :username "testuser"
                       :password "verysecret"
                       :client-id "unique-client-id"}))
(def durable-cons (c/consume ctx "topic://test.topic" my-handler {:id "durable-consumer-id")))

;; When no longer needed, you can `unsubscribe`
(jms/unsubscribe ctx "durable-consumer-id")

Synchronous Consumption

Sometimes it's more useful or straightforward to actively poll received messages. You can achieve this by not passing a listener in the consume function. The consumer is also a Clojure function that you can invoke to poll for the next message. You can pass a timeout (in msecs). If you pass a timeout of zero, it will immediately return unless a message is ready.

;; You can still pass an options map should you so desire
(def consume (jms/consume ctx "test.topic"))

;; Receive next message
(def msg (consume 1000))

(println "The next message received is:" msg)
