We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I'm impressed, I think that Active MQ is great."
"This combination of two products, Apache Kafka and ActiveMQ, offers two ways of dealing with messaging. It's wonderful due to the fact that sometimes it's much preferable to use Kafka and sometimes it's Active MQ. We can use both of them in our arsenal."
"The solution is very lightweight, easy to configure, simple to manage, and robust since it launched."
"This solution could improve by providing better documentation."
"AMQ is not offered as a separate offering anymore. It comes only as a part of the Red Hat Integration package. Therefore, if you would like to purchase a specific product, you can't do that."
"There is improvement needed to keep the support libraries updated."
"There is a subscription needed for this solution and there are support plans available."
