The examples do give a good picture of how to use ActiveMQ and will
probably answer a lot of your questions. Might be worth brushing up a
little on java/ant/maven to the point where you can run the examples.

Yes, using network of brokers.

Yes, the producer and the broker pieces can both be on the same machine if
desired. The broker can even be embedded in the producer.

other. Is this what you meant?

You should take a look at the STOMP protocol. There are some good perl
libraries for talking STOMP with ActiveMQ.
