Apache ActiveMQ in Action is a thorough, practical guide to implementing message-oriented systems in Java using ActiveMQ. The book lays out the core of ActiveMQ in clear language, starting with the anatomy of a JMS message and moving quickly through connectors, message persistence, authentication and authorization. With the basics well in hand, you move into interesting examples of ActiveMQ at work, following a running Stock Portfolio application. You'll integrate ActiveMQ with containers like Geronimo and JBoss and learn to tie into popular Java-based technologies like Spring Framework.
Along the way, you'll pick up best practices forged out of the deep experience the authors bring to the book. You'll learn to integrate with non-Java technologies and explore advanced topics like broker topologies and configuration and performance tuning.
The TTM's "Apache ActiveMQ Reference Guide" (PDF book) provides information to learn how to implement, deploy, administer, and tune Apache ActiveMQ. The Reference Guide includes details on how to work with ActiveMQ components, connectors, client/broker configuration, master/slave configuration, administration, logging, performance tuning and advanced features.
