Subject Re: ActiveMQ CPP library Size
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 23:38:18 GMT


Can you point me at what we might be doing wrong as far as the build that
causes it to be so large, we are doing a get and then opening the project in
VS2k8 and saying build solution, should we be doing something else? Also why
is the linux lib so much larger than the windows version?

Thank you for your help.
