Chapter 2. Components

2.1. AMQP clients

AMQ Clients includes a suite of AMQP 1.0 messaging APIs. AMQP is an ISO-standard, general-purpose messaging protocol with rich messaging capabilities. AMQ Broker and AMQ Interconnect offer AMQP 1.0 support and therefore interoperate with any AMQP 1.0 client.

2.2. JMS clients

AMQ Clients offers multiple implementations of the widely used Java Message Service (JMS) API.

  • AMQ JMS - AMQ JMS provides full AMQP 1.0 support and works with any AMQ AMQP 1.0 server or service.
  • AMQ Core Protocol JMS - To support existing applications based on the ActiveMQ Artemis Core protocol, AMQ includes the AMQ Core Protocol JMS client.

2.3. Adapters and libraries

AMQ Clients includes components for integrating with other platforms and components.

  • AMQ JMS Pool - To support efficient use of JMS resources, AMQ includes the AMQ JMS Pool library. It enables reuse of connection resources beyond the standard lifecycle defined by the JMS API.
  • AMQ Spring Boot Starter - AMQ Spring Boot Starter enables you to build standalone Spring applications that use AMQP 1.0 messaging.
