ActiveMQ Review
The product provides message-level acknowledging and message persistency.

Valuable Features

Most valuable to us are fast asynchronous message queuing with message-level acknowledging and message persistency.

Improvements to My Organization

ActiveMQ operates as the message bus across single-purpose components. Thanks to ActiveMQ, the system is able to scale its heavy computing components during traffic peaks.

Room for Improvement

I would like to see improvement in the clustering brokers. Configuring ActiveMQ brokers for working in a cluster is difficult and has many constraints. Also, the configuration files are not intuitive.

Use of Solution

We have been using ActiveMQ for about 6 years.

Stability Issues

We have not encountered any stability issues.

Scalability Issues

The only issue we had concerned the practical limit of 2000 messages per broker, per second. The next step, which is multiplying brokers, worked well though.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I have not used technical support so far.

Initial Setup

Initial setup is quite complex when done for a high performance system. The configuration files are not intuitive.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
