Subject Cometd vs ActiveMQ for server side push for real time web applications
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2013 08:59:45 GMT
We have requirement to develop server side push infra for real time web
applications. For this, I have been considering using Cometd since this
supports both long polling as well as web sockets based implementation. 

However, I recently came across links like and that say even ActiveMQ provides
support for server side push using long polling(Comet technique) as well as
web sockets. My understanding is that ActiveMQ implementation for this does
not conform to Bayeux protocol. 

Is there any advantage/benefits of ActiveMQ over the Cometd for server side
push solutions? Are there any additional features that one of these provide?
Which is these is more popular and stable? 

P.S -- It's possible that because ActiveMQ was not initially implemented
with server push for web apps in mind, it is not yet a popular or heavily
advertized server push technology. In fact most forums that discuss many
server push technologies and Comet implementations don't even mention
ActiveMQ as one of the options. So, I am wondering if I should just get
started with CometD
