What is difference between MQ and ActiveMQ?

ActiveMQ offers very high throughput and low latency compared to IBM MQ. ActiveMQ supports standard messaging protocols like AMQP, STOMP, MQTT etc whereas IBM MQ just comply with JMS and its own protocol. IBM MQ Light supports AMQP though. IBM MQ is much preferred in enterprise environment, probably due to the support.

What is ActiveMQ used for?

What is ActiveMQ (Active Message Queuing)? ActiveMQ is an open source protocol developed by Apache which functions as an implementation of message-oriented middleware (MOM). Its basic function is to send messages between different applications, but includes additional features like STOMP, JMS, and OpenWire.

Does ActiveMQ support clustering?

By having multiple cluster connections on different addresses a single Apache ActiveMQ Artemis Server can effectively take part in multiple clusters simultaneously.

Why is Kafka better than MQ?

IBM MQ vs Kafka: Performance Factors Throughput: Kafka is recommended for applications that demand high throughput or interaction with a big data stack. On the other hand, IBM MQ is best suited for applications that require a high level of reliability and cannot tolerate message loss.

Is ActiveMQ a server?

Apache ActiveMQ is an open source message broker written in Java together with a full Java Message Service (JMS) client. It provides “Enterprise Features” which in this case means fostering the communication from more than one client or server.

What is ActiveMQ and JMS?

ActiveMQ is a JMS provider. A JMS provider forms the software framework for facilitating the use of JMS concepts inside an application. A single node of ActiveMQ which allows clients to connect to it and use these messaging concepts is called an “ActiveMQ Broker.” So, ActiveMQ is a message broker that implements JMS.

What is a broker in ActiveMQ?

A message broker is a mediator between software components which can act as a message carrier. ActiveMQ stores messages in relevant queues which were published by publisher applications and these messages can be read by consumer applications.

Is Apache ActiveMQ free?

Apache ActiveMQ is free and open source under the permissive Apache 2.0 ASF license.

Is ActiveMQ push or pull?

ActiveMQ will push as many messages to the consumer as fast as possible, where they will be queued for processing by an ActiveMQ Session. The maximum number of messages that ActiveMQ will push to a Consumer without the Consumer processing a message is set by the pre-fetch size.

What is Qpid in Apache Apollo?

Apache Qpid™. Besides ActiveMQ and Apollo there is another Apache Message Broker, Apache Qpid. The aim of the Qpid project is the 100 percent compatibility with the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol Standard. Qpid broker is available for C++ and Java.

Is RabbitMQ better than ActiveMQ or Qpid?

However even in persistent mode RabbitMQ performs better than ActiveMQ or Apache Qpid. • ZeroMQ broker outperforms all others for simple messaging pattern between application. This means that unless you have a need for complex broker features,ZeroMQ is a perfect message dispatcher among processes.

Is there an API for Qpid messaging?

For Java clients there is a JMS API for Qpid. For C++, Python and Microsoft’s .NET there is the Qpid Messaging API. For the persistence of the messages the relational Apache Derby database and the Oracle Berkeley DB are supported. Based on Apache Qpid Red Hat offers the Enterprise Messaging product MRG.

What is the best alternative to ActiveMQ for MQ?

• ActiveMQ or Apollo is simply the leader when it comes to ease of configariton and different persistentstore, at the cost of performance in persistence mode. ApacheMQ and Apache Qpid seems to bevery good among broker based MQ at performing without persistence.Apollo is better in terms of performance and reliability than ActiveMQ /Apache Qpid.
