Open Distributed Messaging Platform – Powered by Groupon


Some time ago I’ve been hearing quite often that HornetQ was not a good product or at least a bad choice for the platform we were working on. I really could not understand these.

The company eventually decided to move away from it and adopt a different technology for their new developments.

I recently joined Groupon as a Java Developer and, surprise surprise, I’ve met again the little bee!

Without surprise I found out that Groupon makes use of HornetQ for Message Bus, a distributed Messaging System that has been made recently public on Message Bus.

Cannot really say much about the product, but you can easily imagine the volume of traffic that has been handled for the past five years, daily, by HornetQ.

If I think to these comments again, a smile appears on my face🙂
