Turbo messaging in JBoss AS 6.0 M3 thanks to HornetQ

We are glad to announce that HornetQ is now the default (built-in) JMS provider in JBoss AS 6, which has just been released.
We have done many tests to make sure JEE users will be happy with HornetQ in JBoss AS. We believe these are the main benefits for AS users:

- Native IO on Linux

All the HornetQ data is stored in its journal. JBoss AS 6 now bundles the native HornetQ AIO library for Linux users.

Don't worry if you don't use Linux though. HornetQ is still *extremely* fast on Windows, Solaris and other platforms.

- Deployers.
We have integrated HornetQ with the application server deployers. You can have your enterprise application (WAR, EAR.. etc) containing HornetQ deployment descriptors in simple config files which is much simpler than the old formats used by JBoss Messaging and JBoss MQ.

- Administration
We have integrated the JBoss AS admin console with HornetQ. If you don't like XML at all, just use the administrator to maintain your destinations. Simple as click-click

- Enhancements
We have made several enhancements to HornetQ during the release of the JBoss Application Server. HornetQ was already fast before as proven by SpecJMS; an industry standard benchmark yet we have made lots of enhancements. Look at the release notes for more information.
