ActiveMQ Overview

ActiveMQ is a method of sending messages from one point to another or from one service to another. Producers create messages and submit them for delivery to consumers who receive and process these messages. These messages are routed through an Active MQ broker to an address which can either be one-to-one messaging (queue) to an available consumer or publishes a message (topic) to every subscribed consumer.

ActiveMQ is comparable to other messaging systems, such as Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ, and Amazon Simple Queue Service.
