Subject Re: C# / .net - getting started
Date Wed, 27 May 2009 07:49:24 GMT


I encountered simular issues when getting started with ActiveMQ.NMS..
However, if you search a bit, there is some good info about it on the web. I
would recommend RE.mark's blog which has some very good and very hands on
articles on how to work with NMS.

I do agree however that some stuff is poorly documented (or the
documentation is just very had to find) which slows development and probably
will make a lot of people just give up all together :(

Too bad cause ActiveMQ is a very goood product and the NMS API get's the job
done, even if it is not always very clear on how to do it
