Publishing Key-value events via JMS


This application demonstrates how to configure WSO2 Streaming Integrator Tooling to send sweet production events via JMS transport in Keyvalue format.


  1. Setup ActiveMQ
    • Download activemq-client-5.x.x.jar (
    • Download (
    • ActiveMQ activemq-client-5.x.x.jar lib to be added and converted to OSGI (See Note: To convert ActiveMQ lib to OSGI).
    • Unzip the and copy the following ActiveMQ libs in apache-activemq-5.x.x/lib to {WSO2SIHome}/samples/sample-clients/lib and {WSO2SIHome}/lib.
      • hawtbuf-1.9.jar
      • geronimo-j2ee-management_1.1_spec-1.0.1.jar
      • geronimo-jms_1.1_spec-1.1.1.jar
  2. Save this sample.
  3. If there is no syntax error, the following message is shown on the console:
    Siddhi App PublishJmsInKeyvalueFormat successfully deployed.


To convert ActiveMQ lib to OSGI, 1. Navigate to {WSO2SIHome}/bin and run the following command: - For Linux:

./ org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory <Downloaded Jar Path>/activemq-client-5.x.x.jar <Output Jar Path>
- For Windows:
./icf-provider.bat org.apache.activemq.jndi.ActiveMQInitialContextFactory <Downloaded Jar Path>\activemq-client-5.x.x.jar <Output Jar Path>
* Provide privileges if necessary using chmod +x icf-provider.(sh|bat). * Also, this will register the InitialContextFactory implementation according to the OSGi JNDI spec. 2. If converted successfully then it will create activemq-client-5.x.x directory in the <Output Jar Path> with OSGi converted and original jars: - activemq-client-5.x.x.jar (Original Jar) - activemq-client-5.x.x_1.0.0.jar (OSGi converted Jar) Also, following messages would be shown on the terminal.
- INFO: Executing 'jar uf <absolute_path>/activemq-client-5.x.x/activemq-client-5.x.x.jar -C <absolute_path>/activemq-client-5.x.x /internal/CustomBundleActivator.class'
[timestamp] addBundleActivatorHeader
- INFO: Running jar to bundle conversion [timestamp] convertFromJarToBundle
- INFO: Created the OSGi bundle activemq_client_5.x.x_1.0.0.jar for JAR file <absolute_path>/activemq-client-5.x.x/activemq-client-5.x.x.jar
3. You can find the OSGi converted libs in activemq-client-5.x.x folder. You can copy activemq-client-5.x.x/activemq-client-5.x.x_1.0.0.jar to {WSO2SIHome}/lib and activemq-client-5.x.x/activemq-client-5.x.x.jar to {WSO2SIHome}/samples/sample-clients/lib.

Executing the Sample:

  1. Navigate to {apache-activemq-5.x.x} unzipped directory and start ActiveMQ server node using bin/activemq.
  2. Start the Siddhi application by clicking on 'Run'.
  3. If the Siddhi application starts successfully, the following messages are shown on the console:
    PublishJmsInKeyvalueFormat.siddhi - Started Successfully!

Testing the Sample:

  1. Open a terminal and navigate to {WSO2SIHome}/samples/sample-clients/jms-consumer and run the following command.
    ant -Dtype='keyvalue'
  2. Send events through one or more of the following methods.
Option 1: Send events to jms sink, via event simulator
  1. Open the event simulator by clicking on the second icon or pressing Ctrl+Shift+I.
  2. In the Single Simulation tab of the panel, specify the values as follows:
    • Siddhi App Name: PublishJmsInKeyvalueFormat
    • Stream Name: SweetProductionStream
  3. In the name and amount fields, enter the following and then click Send to send the event.
    name: chocolate cake
    amount: 50.50
  4. Send some more events.
Option 2: Publish events with Curl command to the simulator HTTP endpoint
  1. Open a new terminal and issue the following command:
    curl -X POST -d '{"streamName": "SweetProductionStream", "siddhiAppName": "PublishJmsInKeyvalueFormat","data": ["chocolate cake", 50.50]}' http://localhost:9390/simulation/single -H 'content-type: text/plain'
  2. If there is no error, the following messages are shown on the terminal:
    {"status":"OK","message":"Single Event simulation started successfully"}
Option 3: Publish events with Postman to the simulator HTTP endpoint
  1. Install 'Postman' application from Chrome web store.
  2. Launch the application.
  3. Make a 'Post' request to the 'http://localhost:9390/simulation/single' endpoint. Set the Content-Type to 'text/plain' and set the request body in text as follows:
    {"streamName": "SweetProductionStream", "siddhiAppName": "PublishJmsInKeyvalueFormat","data": ['chocolate cake', 50.50]}
  4. Click 'send'. If there is no error, the following messages are shown on the console:
    "status": "OK",
    "message": "Single Event simulation started successfully"

Viewing the Results:

See the output on the terminal of {WSO2SIHome}/samples/sample-clients/jms-consumer:

[java] [] : JmsReceiver : logStream : Event{timestamp=1513607495863, data=['chocolate cake', 50.50], isExpired=false}
