Openwire is the native protocol that AMQ uses.  Stomp is an extension
that is simpler protocol which can be used to communicate with the AMQ
broker.  Its not going to be as efficient as an client that uses
Openwire, but it much simpler so you can generally be up and running
with it much quicker.

Here's the Stomp Page from the ActiveMQ site.

What the ActiveMQ CPP client page actually says is this:
"ActiveMQ CPP is a C++ API to JMS/MOM implemented currently using Stomp
but we hope to have an implementation using OpenWire soon."
There currently is no support for openwire in activemq-cpp.  There is an
openwire-cpp, but I can't speak to how wells it works, someone else
whose used it will have to chime in on that.

There are already clients for ActiveMQ using those languages, see the
connectivity section on the AMQ site.

You should probably start buy running through the using activemq section
of the website and just get familiar with it from the Java side of
things, then look at the various client API to see how they integrate
into the picture.
