In ActiveMQ order is preserved once the messages hit the connection  
(which has the Transport inside it). So if 1 thread sends foo then  
bar, then foo will be delivered before bar in all consumers. So order  
is preserved for each thread sending on the same connection.

Incidentally we also have support for total ordering too...

which is great if you want all of the consumers to see exactly the  
same order of messages.
