Subject RE: C++ only solution (is this possible)?
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2008 22:36:40 GMT
ActiveMQ-CPP is only a client so in one sense yes you are forced to
bring java into the mix.  However this is only from the standpoint that
all your C++ clients need a message broker and the broker happens to be
written in Java.  The clients themselves are pure C++ client using
ActiveMQ-CPP as their conduit to message each other; the broker manages
all the plumbing behind the scenes to pass the messages back and forth
and persist them if needed etc.  So somewhere on your network you need
to run a broker.  So then the question is does it really matter what
language the broker is written in or does it only matter that all your
C++ clients can talk.

So the short answer is yes you need java installed somewhere, but only
on the machine that runs the broker, everywhere else your clients could
all be C++ applications.

Does that help?
