Subject Re: JBoss AMQ versus Artemis AMQ

Hi Oliver 

In that case I'd suggest when speaking with a vendor you ask them to provide contacts of organisations
willing to discuss the benefits they've had with you, via other channels.

Such a decision is not easy in our environment because of the consequences.
