Subject Re: Integration between Node.js and ActiveMQ - how to use
Date Wed, 10 May 2017 05:56:45 GMT
I expect that if you could find a Node library that implemented one of
those other protocols, you'd be able to interact with the broker, but I
can't say for certain since I've never used any of the non-OpenWire
protocols under any language, let alone Node.

Did you already do a Google search for Node implementations of those
protocols? A quick Google search turned up,
but there may well be other NPMs beyond those.

Regarding EIPs, one option would be to run Camel embedded within the
ActiveMQ broker process, if that would meet your needs.

Alternatively, if you have a Node-based EIP framework that you want to use,
and it is capable of interacting with a JMS 1.x broker, it should be able
to interact with ActiveMQ. But maybe the more relevant question is, "which
specific EIPs are you hoping to use in Node.js with ActiveMQ?" Keep in mind
that EIPs are just patterns, and although a framework like Camel makes some
of them easier to use by writing some of the boilerplate for you, you
always have the option to implement the pattern yourself.
