HermesJMS console to monitor JMS resources

HermesJMS is an
extensible console that helps you interact with JMS providers making it easy to browse or search queues and topics, copy messages around and delete them. It fully integrates with JNDI letting you discover administered objects stored, create JMS sessions from the connection factories and use any destinations found. Many providers include a plugin that uses the native API to do non-JMS things like getting queue depths (and other statistics) or finding queue and topic names.

The main advantage of the tool is the ability to work with many JMS Providers like JBOSS MQ, ActiveMQ,  OpenJMS, Weblogic, Webspehere etc etc. It also supports the FIX protocol messages which gives a full advantage to all financial vertical applications.

HermesJMS is a java swing based tool.
