About Apache ActiveMQ

Apache ActiveMQ is an open source (Apache 2.0 licensed) message broker which fully implements the Java Message Service 1.1 (JMS). It provides “Enterprise Features” like clustering, multiple message stores, and ability to use any database as a JMS persistence provider besides VM, cache, and journal persistency. ActiveMQ is used in enterprise service bus implementations such as Apache ServiceMix, Apache Camel, and Mule. Apache ActiveMQ is also a key component of the Apache Geronimo Web Application Server and IBM WebSphere Application Server Community Edition.
