Subject Re: ActiveMQ and AMQP (Qpid/RabbitMQ)

Yes, a single broker can support many clients, so once you have one (that
will be online whenever any of the clients will want to connect to it), you
don't have to have one for the clients.  There are sometimes reasons that
people would want to do that (primarily because it decouples the client
from the standalone broker if the standalone broker is sometimes
unavailable, or if the network link to the standalone broker is
high-latency), but it's absolutely not required (or typical), and nothing
you've described sounds like you would have those needs.

The CMS libraries are absolutely an option for a C++ client; they'd be the
first option I considered for C++ code with an ActiveMQ broker, and I'd
pick them over the AMQP approach you originally described if you can make
them work with Yocto.  And yes, in all languages, if you're a client
application, you simply include the ActiveMQ libraries and run; there's no
additional installation required and no other processes that need to be
running before you can connect to the standalone broker.
