HornetQ 2.0 was already fast as mentioned before. And still we have done significant performance improvements on this release.
As a matter of fact, if you are doing light weight message sends you have the option of batching multiple sends and using more of your network resources.
We have also added Stomp to our list of native protocols.
As well the possibility of using WebSockets at the browser
We love what we do, HornetQ is already a very strong messaging server, our performance is astonishing and we are full speed ahead on bringing even more improvements on 2.2
Full speed ahead on 2.2 now!
