Apache ActiveMQ is an open source (Apache 2.0 licensed) message broker which fully implements the Java Message Service 1.1 (JMS). It provides "Enterprise Features"[1] like clustering, multiple message stores, and availability to use any database as a JMS persistence provider besides VM, cache, and journal persistency.

Apart from Java, ActiveMQ can be also used from .NET[2], C/C++[3] or Delphi[4] or from scripting languages like Perl, Python, PHP and Ruby via various "Cross Language Clients"[4] together with connecting to many protocols and platforms[5]. These include several standard wire-level protocols, plus their own protocol called OpenWire.

ActiveMQ is used in enterprise service bus implementations such as Apache ServiceMix, Apache Camel, and Mule.

ActiveMQ is often used with Apache ServiceMix, Apache Camel and Apache CXF in SOA infrastructure projects.[6]

Enterprise support for ActiveMQ is available from independent vendors including FuseSource. FuseSource offers an enterprise version of ActiveMQ called FUSE Message Broker that is tested, certified and supported.

Coinciding with the release of Apache ActiveMQ 5.3, the world's first results for the SPECjms2007 industry standard benchmark were announced. Four results were submitted to the SPEC and accepted for publication. The results cover different topologies to analyze the scalability of Apache ActiveMQ in two dimensions.[7][8]
