ZeroConf is a standard service discovery mechanism. ZeroConf is used on Apple’s OS X; which used to call it Rendezvous but now calls it Bonjour.

Support for ZeroConf is deprecated and scheduled to be removed from ActiveMQ 5.8 onwards.

We use the jmDNS project to implement the Zeroconf specification to detect services. This means other Zeroconf
based tools can be used in conjunction with this discovery agent.

You can use ZeroConf with ActiveMQ’s Discovery mechanism. For more details see
