Abstract

## A.1. Apache ActiveMQ Distribution

If you simply want to use a standard distribution of Apache ActiveMQ you can use the archived version in the installation's `extras` directory.
The `apache-activemq-5.11.0.redhat-630<build#>-bin.zip` archive file is provided.
You can copy this archive file to the desired location and decompress it using the appropriate utility for your platform.
Warning
Do not unpack the archive file into a folder that has spaces in its path name. For example, do not unpack into `C:\Documents and Settings\Greco Roman\Desktop\fusesrc`.
