Personally I think for servers, having anonymous enabled by default is 
safer than having a predefined guest user. However...

What about (a) mentioning the issue in the README (alongside the fact 
that a queue named 'queue; is expected) and (b) taking the username and 
password from system properties, env vars or command line args (e.g. see 
attached for the helloworld example).

That way the user sees the problem coming, but can also easily supply 
the necessary credentials without having to edit the source. (Not that 
doing so is arduous, but it makes running things one small step easier).

I admit I'm coming from an atypical pov, which is more in using the 
examples to do basic tests between different components.
