Editor’s noteWe’ve renamed our product suite. The VMR is now referred to as Solace PubSub+. See our products page for more information.


A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the introduction of SEMPv2 on the Solace appliance – our new RESTful, object-oriented management protocol. In that blog, I promised that soon we would have SEMPv2 for the VMR. Well, that day has arrived!

Version 7.2.1 of the Virtual Message Router, which includes SEMPv2, is available for you to download now. It has the same rich feature set as the previous version of the VMR software, but now you can manage your message VPNs using SEMPv2. We’ve also increased the number of clients you can connect to a VMR in both the 90-day Evaluation Edition and full Enterprise Edition of the product.

If you missed our earlier blog posting describing SEMPv2, you can find it here.  Or if you are ready to just jump right in, check out the SEMP tutorials that will help you get started quickly. We’ve also got material to introduce you to both the SEMP Concepts and the entire API reference.
