As with a lot of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software), it is what you pay for.

This is our first foray into the world of messages.

Initial Setup:

The terminology and configuration took some time to learn. In some ways, it does not do what you think it will do, so be careful.

If you are getting started, go with Kafka.
