JMS broker is basically a JMS server. It's a physical component that handles 
the communication between clients. Instead of communicating with each other, 
clients communicate only with the message broker. A client sends a message 
to the message broker, providing the logical name of the receivers. The 
message broker looks up client registered under the logical name and then 
passes the message to them.

In the producer/consumer example, you must run the broker first (that is by 
running activemq) before  running the producer and consumer.
