Snap type:



This Snap creates JMS messages from incoming JSON documents and puts them into a JMS destination.

If you are planning to use Delay and Schedule Message Delivery feature in Apache ActiveMQ (, you must set the schedulerSupport attribute to true in broker configuration, which can be found in $ACTIVEMQ_HOME/conf/activemq.xml.



Support and limitations:Ultra pipelines: Works in Ultra Task Pipelines.
  • Spark mode: Not supported in Spark mode.
  • Account: 

    This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See Configuring JMS AccountAccounts for information on setting up this type of account.


    InputThis Snap has exactly one binary input view. If the upstream Snap generates a document in its output you must use corresponding formatting Snaps to convert the input data into a binary format. 
    OutputThis Snap has at most one document output view. The output includes the original metadata, JMSCorrelationID, and JMSMessageID along with any other parameters specified in the Message properties field.
    ErrorThis Snap has at most one document error view and produces zero or more documents in the view.



    Required. The name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.


    Required. The queue or topic to which the message is to be sent. 

    • The topic/queue name specified is case sensitive. Ensure that the letter case for Destination is the same in the Producer and Consumer Snaps.
    • If the topic/queue name does not exist at the Java Message Service client (such as ActiveMQ), one will automatically be created with that name.
    • When using Weblogic JMS Server, you must provide the queue/topic name as well as the name of the module associated with the queue/topic. Use the following format: 

      Paste code macro


    • TestQueue
    • testmodule!testqueue
    • testmodule!testtopic

    Destination type

    • JMSTimestamp
    • JMSCorrelationID
    • JMSType
    • JMSRedelivered

    This property when selected, a transacted session is used to produce the message and the TransactionID is added to the output.


    Transaction ID is applicable to the ActiveMQ only.

    Default value: false

    Number of retries

    The maximum number of attempts the Snap must make to fetch JMS messages when there is a network failure.


    Default value0

    Reading Message Data from JSON 1

    This example demonstrates how you can use the JMS Producer Snap to read data from a JSON file and add the data into the message queue.

    The sample input data consists of employee records. The JSON Generator Snap generates them as a JSON document. The following image shows a preview of the output from the JSON Generator Snap:

    Since the JMS Producer Snap accepts only binary inputs, the JSON Formatter Snap is used between the JSON Generator and JMS Producer Snaps.

    The following image shows the configuration of the JMS Producer Snap:

    On successful execution, all the data is placed in the messaging queue.

    Reading Message Data from JSON File 2

    The below pipeline creates the messages from the incoming binary format and displays the output view on executing successfully.   

    In the Snap settings, the Transacted Session property is selected and hence the output view displays the Transaction ID that can validated on the JMS console.
