Apache ActiveMQ

September 7, 2021

Apache ActiveMQ is “Flexible & Powerful Open Source Multi-Protocol Messaging.” In this episode I speak with four members of the project – Jean-Baptiste Onofre, Justin Bertram, Matt Pavlovich and Clebert Suconic – about what that means, and what’s new in the project.

In preparation for the recording, I also discovered that we did an interview with ActiveMQ back in 2007, in Episode 27 with David Reid and James Strachan. It’s interesting to compare the project then with now.



That’s also available in our Google Podcast and iTunes channels – see links to the right.
