Subject Re: when does ActiveMQ 6.x releases?
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2017 08:01:50 GMT
Currently there is no time line for Apache ActiveMQ Artemis to turn into 6.x afaik. Nor still
any confirmation it will be renamed to that. It may just live in as it has been for the last
few years.

Apache ActiveMQ Artemis, It is used in production environments already (we are adopting it
in my org), and also is already on its second major version as such is mature as anything

Re client support, it has OpenWire (activemq5.x protocol) support so you should be able to
switch over relatively easily, without changing your client code, if you're using standard

Artemis also supports AMQP, MQTT and many more standard wire protocols.

Re the Kafka vs JMS (ActiveMQ or any other) broker tbh, it's like nosql vs sql both have their
place and should be used complementary to each other not as replacement. In my org we run
them side by side complimenting each other and bridging message flows between the two so we
can benefit from both worlds and all the features we need for different scenarios.
