ActiveMQ: A high performance JMS message bus

A proposal for a distributed message broker as a sub project of Geronimo.


The Geronimo project is currently using ActiveMQ as its JMS provider. Currently
ActiveMQ is hosted at Codehaus, has a stable codebase and a large and vibrant community. 

This proposal moves the existing ActiveMQ community to Apache so it can better integrate with
the rest of the Geronimo and Apache communities and to simplify the work of the J2EE TCK.

Both HP and Globus have existing WS-Notification implementations to support their respective

projects - WSDM MuWS and the Globus Toolkit. The starting point source code for this project
will be a 
combination of source code from both HP and Globus. The HP WS-N source code will initially
reside in 
the new Muse project, since it is currently an integrated part of that project.

== Meritocracy: ==

The ActiveMQ community is a healthy meritocracy with plenty of developers.

== Community: ==

The ActiveMQ community is vibrant - see the mailing lists.

e.g. in the last year there has been almost 3000 mails to the user list.

== Core Developers: ==

The core developers are a diverse group of developers many of which are already very experienced
open source developers. There is at least one Apache Member together with a number of other
existing Apache Committers along with folks from various companies.

== Alignment: ==

ActiveMQ is already an integral part of Geronimo.


== Orphaned products: ==

ActiveMQ is still a crucial part of Geronimo and under heavy active development.

== Inexperience with open source: ==

Most of the comitters have a proven track record in open source at Apache and Codehaus.

== Homogenous developers: ==

There are developers from various companies: BetFair, Chariot, IBM, LogicBlaze, Virtuas

See the team page for more detail

== No ties to other Apache products: ==

ActiveMQ is already part of Geronimo and intends to be a sub-project of Geronimo.

== A fascination with the Apache brand: ==

We are moving to Apache to grow closer ties with the Geronimo project.
