No worries :)

They are basically wire formats (i.e. how are commands exchanged over
a socket). They are funcitionally similar; Stomp is super simple to
implement, OpenWire is much faster & binary but lots harder to write.

Neither are APIs. The C++ API for ActiveMQ is currently defined by the
CMS API (*) which has implementations for Stomp and OpenWire.
Typically for any language the Stomp client is way simpler and easier
to use; OpenWire is faster but takes a little longer to stabalize.

Yes - see the CMS area of SVN.

(*) just to complicate things, Amazon are in the process of donating
an alternative C/C++ client, we're just waiting for it to be attached
to a JIRA
