You can't really enforce the maximum number producers you actually have created, since a session
can potentially have numerous producer objects.  You can only really enforce the maximum number
of sessions, which you've set in "maximumActive".  Under your current configuration you are
potentially allowing yourself to have up to 4000 sessions.

It's typically better to have a single connection for consumers since those are expected to
be long lived connections and you avoid the overhead of having several connections exist for
the purpose of pooling.  The JMS and ActiveMQ Camel components use Spring's JmsTemplate under
the hood - see .  That page recommends
using Spring's CachingConnectionFactory for consumers since that doesn't cache a connection
pool but caches session objects instead.
