Introduction to JMS Testing

HermesJMS Integration


SoapUI integrates with the HermesJMS open source application which supports many different JMS providers. This gives support for JMS messaging allowing you to send and receive both text and binary messages.

Installing HermesJMS with SoapUI

HermesJMS is bundled with the SoapUI installer, so the simplest way to get it is just to select it for installation when you install (or reinstall) SoapUI.

See here for more information: Installing SoapUI.

Note: You need to configure SoapUI with the location of the HermesJMS you want to use: 

  • Open SoapUI Preferences
  • Choose the Tools tab
  • Enter the location of HermesJMS in the HermesJMS tab

Downloading ActiveMQ and starting the server

For the purpose of this tutorial we will need ActiveMQ (a free JMS implementation).

  • Open a console
  • Run the command activemq.bat start

This will start activemq server on your local machine.
