I cant think of a way to achieve this out of the box via
configuration, what you are looking for is very specific.
Virtual topics will help, giving u a queue for each subscription, but
this will need to be statically configured if all consumers are to get
all messages.
However, with some tweaking via plugins, you could build what you need
using a queue that does not persist acks, such that the queue is a
persistent archive of every message and any new consumer can start at
the beginning.
You will need to do some additional work to have the start point
configurable or programmable, but with a bit of research and
prototyping it is possible. ActiveMQ is very extensible (all
operations/commands can be overridden) so it is a good place to start.

check out virtual destinations and plugins/interceptors in the online doc.
