Say hello to the IBM Message Hub Incubator service

Share this post:

We’ve just published a new experimental service: the Message Hub Incubator. As the name suggests, this is a place where we can try out new capabilities, and listen to your feedback. It’s also somewhere where, from time to time, we might break things – and it’s for this reason that we created this new service that is entirely separate to the production-ready Message Hub service.

The Incubator service offers all of the capabilities of the production Message Hub service plus the one or two extra capabilities that we’re trying out. So you can experiment with the new features and also see how they might integrate with what’s already there in Message Hub. Periodically, when we’re sure it’s ready, we’ll migrate a particular capability from the Incubator service into the Message Hub service proper.

Right now we are incubating an implementation of the MQ Light API, which is based on Message Hub (and hence Apache Kafka) as the engine. You can find more details in
the service’s documentation, including samples showing how to get up and running with the MQ Light API. Why not give it a go, and post your feedback on dW Answers, or tag your tweets #ibmmessaging?
