Blaze is about only AMQP, a proposed standard for interoperable messaging.
ActiveMQ implements multiple protocols.  There is some disagreement between
AMQP proponents and the ActiveMQ team regarding the desirability of
balkanizing messaging protocols.

Blaze's goal (AMQP) is to provide multple language implementations of a
language-neutral, wire-level, protocol with a ton of detailed semantics for
interoperable messaging.  JMS is a a Java API.
