    +# Apache ActiveMQ Kafka Bridge
    +The function of a bridge is to consume messages from a source queue in Apache ActiveMQ
    +and forward them to a target topic, on a remote Apache Kafka server.
    +By pairing Apache ActiveMQ Artemis and Apache Kafka with the bridge you could have a
hybrid broker setup, 
    +having a data flow with CORE, AMQP, MQTT clients, as well as now Kafka clients also.

    +Taking and giving the best features of both broker technologies when and where needed
for a flow of data.

    +The intent is this will be a two way bridge, but currently the flow is a single direction

    +from Apache ActiveMQ Artemis to Apache Kafka
    +The source and target servers are remote making bridging suitable
    +for reliably sending messages from one artemis cluster to kafka, 
    +for instance across a WAN, to the cloud, or internet and where the connection may be
    +The bridge has built in resilience to failure so if the target server
    +connection is lost, e.g. due to network failure, the bridge will retry
    +connecting to the target until it comes back online. When it comes back
    +online it will resume operation as normal.
