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. Both AMQ Broker and AMQ Interconnect offer AMQP 1.0 support and therefore interoperate with any AMQP 1.0 client.

2.2. JMS clients and libraries

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

AMQ JMS provides full AMQP 1.0 support and works with any AMQ server. For more information, see Using the AMQ JMS Client.

To support existing applications based on A-MQ 6, AMQ 7 includes the AMQ OpenWire JMS client. For more information, see Using the AMQ OpenWire JMS Client.

To support existing applications based on the ActiveMQ Artemis Core protocol, AMQ includes the AMQ Core Protocol JMS client. For more information, see Using the AMQ Core Protocol JMS Client.

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. For more information, see Using the AMQ JMS Pool Library.
