Subject Re: Difference between ActiveMQ vs Apache ActiveMQ Artemis
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2015 14:31:03 GMT
I won't try to detail the differences; someone who knows Artemis well
should do that.  But one high-level difference is that Artemis implements
JMS 2.0 and ActiveMQ implements only 1.0.

One factor to consider is how risk-averse the organization is when choosing
software.  Artemis achieved 1.0 status in June of this year, which might be
too new (due to the potential for bugs, not due to any concerns about
whether Artemis will continue to be developed and supported) for a highly
risk averse organization.  Organizations that are comfortable closer to the
cutting edge might have no concerns about its relative newness and might
appreciate the fact that it's being very actively developed.

I'd always encourage someone considering using an open source product to
check out the bugs in the backlog, to get a sense of whether those problems
are likely to affect you given your expected usage scenarios.

I do not know if there is an existing thread on this subject but
-What is the difference between Active MQ and Apache ActiveMQ Artemis
It is possible that Artemis will eventually become the successor to ActiveMQ
5.x (and that it might eventually be branded as ActiveMQ 6.x), but no
decision about that had been made as of April 2015
So what should one be advising developers to use Apache ActiveMQ Artemis
which incidentally part of JBoss EAP 7.0 or use ActiveMQ 5.x which is the
commercially known ActiveMQ?
