Design mostly, the web service is the interface. The fact that ActiveMQ (or
any other solution) is behind the scenes providing the updates is simply a

Essentially, keeping the client as agnostic as practical.

I'll have to look. I thought the REST support was for publishing, not
necessarily subscribing.

I'm actually more interested in going the other way, from Oracle to
ActiveMQ. The idea being that not all changes will necessarily come from the
app server, some may source from the database. If the stored procedures can
post to an Oracle Queue, and then that Queue can be forwarded to an ActiveMQ
Topic, that would satisfy that requirement quite nicely.
