+ ActiveMQ Router
+ Overview
+This module is a new core routing back end for the ActiveMQ message 
+broker.  It's an attempt to consolidate and simplify features that
+have been added over time to the current ActiveMQ 5.0 back end.
+ActiveMQ 5.0 added the ability to spool messages to disk so that larger
+queue depths could be supported without blocking the producer.  This
+was added on without being designed into the the original architecture
+of the broker.  This version attempts to make supporting this feature
+easier by designing in this use case from the start.
+This had lead to a re-design of the message store interfaces and 
+and cache management.  It is also going to do away with some bad ideas
+like having a global broker wide memory limit.  The broker wide
+limit makes it too easy to enter into a network deadlock.
+Right now this back end provides a platform to test out design changes
+and is only implementing the core uses messaging use cases.  Temp 
+destination, queue browsers and such are not yet implemented.  These
+can easily be added on later.
+We should use this module to do performance related research on:
+ * contention reduction
+ * latency reduction
+ * memory footprint reductions
+ * batching optimizations to increase throughput
+ * thread model changes 
+ Building
+For this module to build you first must patch up and build the 
+ActiveMQ trunk with the activemq.patch file.  The patch adds the hooks
+that are needed to replace the default ActiveMQ routing back end
+with this new router.
+$ cd ${activemq-trunk}
+$ patch -p 0 < ${activemq-router}/activemq.patch
+$ mvn clean install -Dtest=false
