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.

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.
