Subject Re: Messaging for temporary connected systems

This can be done with ActiveMQ using a hub-and-spoke topology on a network
of brokers.  The spoke brokers should use duplex connections to the hub so
the hub broker doesn't need to enumerate them all.

You can either embed a broker within each client or run standalone brokers
at each spoke location.  The former is simpler to configure, but has the
significant disadvantage that any messages in a client's embedded broker
will either be lost (if the client broker doesn't use a persistent store)
or unavailable until the client reconnects.  If possible, you should use
standalone brokers colocated with your clients, to enable that messages are
delivered as expected.
