What is most valuable?

The reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The GUI could be improved. When we go into GUI mode, there are occasions where it will not sync with our expectations. There are crashes that happen that will stop the solution from performing. It seems we get minor glitches when we go into GUI mode. The data client architecture that we have isn't… more»

What other advice do I have?

If companies have mobile development, they should use JMeter. If they want to integrate it with the PA pipeline, JMeter will work well. However, there are other platforms and solutions as well.

For example, on both, there are more network features available that aren't included in JMeter and you can model your load and… more»

What is most valuable?

For any messaging system, I think that messaging, in general, is fundamental to software development.

What needs improvement?

This solution could improve by providing better documentation. IBM MQ has 30 years of experience to build upon and has had 30 years to grow and improve, while ActiveMQ does not have the same kind of heritage that IBM MQ has. In comparison, I find that IBM documentation is better, but it has had a lot more investment behind it. In the next release, I think that a roadmap would be interesting. If we… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have also had experience with IBM MQ for the last 30 years. I am comparing between different products and messaging scenario expertise. I work in consultancies with many clients who have many different versions. All messaging whether it's ActiveMQ, Amazon MQ which is Active MQ, or it's IBM MQ, they are all very similar, they all have strengths and weaknesses. We have clients from small to large… more»
