You should first . know that MOM & Open Source is a quite recent love song,
because MOM (MQ-Series or Tuxedo) are old components in huge infrastructures
In the Java world JMs is the standard for implementing Point to Point or
Pub/Sub messaging paradigms (Request /Response one is not supported)..
JMs can provide you :
- decoupling (with support for different clients)
- independance from vendor (just change your config to switch from one tool
to another)

ActiveMQ will bring you:
* C++ connector (and different other languages like ruby/python/PHP)
* Open Source
* clean architecture
* good internal design ==> several deployment options

Good choice
