+Deploying the ActiveMQ-WebConsole
+In the default configuration ActiveMQ automatically starts the web console in the
+same VM as the broker. The console is accessibly under http://localhost:8161/admin/.
+However it's also possible to start the web console in a seperate VM and connect it
+to the broker via JMS and JMX. The reasons to do so may include increased reliablity
+of the broker itself (f.e. the embedded web console could use up all the available
+memory) or the monitoring of a master/slave system.
+Just deploy the war into your prefered servlet container and add the apache-activemq.jar
+to the classpath of the container (f.e. under Tomcat that'd be common/lib and under
+Jetty the lib-directory). Two options are available for the configuration of the broker
+and jmx uri(s):
+ * System Properties
+   -----------------
+     Specify the following system properties in your webcontainer:
+         -Dwebconsole.type=properties
+         -Dwebconsole.jms.url=<url of the broker> (f.e. tcp://localhost:61616)
+         -Dwebconsole.jmx.url=<jmx url to the broker> (f.e. service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://localhost:1099/jmxrmi)
+ * JNDI
+   ----
+     If your servlet container supports JNDI it's possible to use a JMS-ConnectionFactory
+     configured outside the war:
+	java:comp/env/jms/connectionFactory: javax.jms.ConnectionFactory for the broker
+	java:comp/env/jmx/url: URL of the brokers JMX (Type java.lang.String)       
+Master/Slave monitoring
+To configure the web console to monitor a master/slave configuration configure the jms/jmx
+as follows (system properties shown, but this option is also avaiable when using JNDI):
+   -Dwebconsole.jms.url=failover:(tcp://serverA:61616,tcp://serverB:61616)
+   -Dwebconsole.jmx.url=service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://serverA:1099/jmxrmi,service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://serverB:1099/jmxrmi
+With this configuration the web console with switch to the slave as the master is no longer
+available and back as soon as the master is back up.
