Lightstreamer, the pioneer and global leader in real-time messaging and data streaming, today announced the launch of Lightstreamer JMS Extender, a software that allows to easily expose any JMS broker on the Web, with maximum scalability and security.
The Lightstreamer JMS Extender can connect to any JMS server (including ActiveMQ, JbossMQ, HornetQ, WebSphere MQ, WebLogic, Qpid, etc) and make it available to any web browser, including mobile, and Node.JS application, even behind the strictest corporate firewalls and proxies. There is no need to change any firewall security policy. Web pages can exchange messages with existing JMS applications, as well as interact with other pages and web apps in real time. Similarly, any Node.js application will be able to access a JMS server and produce/consume messages.
By offloading the fan-out from the legacy JMS server to the Lightstreamer JMS Extender, it is possible to scale to millions of JMS clients. The Extender will take care of JMS connection pooling, connection offloading, and automatic reconnection, for best performance.
The Lightstreamer JMS Extender allows to implement fine-grained authentication and authorization logic through a Java Hook API, without dealing with legacy and proprietary JMS security mechanisms.
“JMS is the main part of the MOM market and has become a standard for a growing number of industries including finance, energy, defense, telecommunication, and transportation” said Mauro Fantechi, company's co-CEO and Chairman. “The Lightstreamer JMS Extender adds key features to any existing JMS broker, without replacing it, including the ability to use JMS as part of the Web ecosystem, coupled with connection offloading”.
The Lightstreamer JMS Extender supports several JMS features, including: producers and consumers on any topic or queue; durable subscribers; asynchronous message consuming via message listeners; synchronous message consuming via receiveNoWait; message selectors; five different acknowledge modes; four different message types; session recovery; transactions; temporary queues and topics; message correlation; connection client IDs.
The product is now generally available and the demo version can be downloaded for free.

Lightstreamer (formerly Weswit) is a global leader in real-time messaging and data streaming solutions. Since the beginning, Lightstreamer has been focused on real-time technologies aimed at making the Web a live environment, and superseding the traditional Web paradigm, where any update had to be "pulled" by the client rather than "pushed" by the server. Lightstreamer anticipated and helped develop new technology paradigms, such as Comet and WebSockets, and is now leading the real-time messaging space, including Mobile and the Internet of Things.
The Lightstreamer products have been used by a growing number of organizations, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, including top-tier financial institutions, as well as aerospace, defense, energy, gaming, sporting, media, and entertainment companies. In 2012, Weswit (the name of the Lightstreamer company at that time) was recognized as a "Cool Vendor in Application and Integration Platforms" by Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.
Lightstreamer has millions of final users served by hundreds of customers worldwide, including NASA, Delta Airlines, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity Investments, Morningstar, Fannie Mae, IG Group, Societe Generale, UBS, Deutsche Börse, UniCredit, GAIN Capital, Sony Music, Honeywell, GVC Holdings, Sky, and many others.
