Covers everything you need to know about ActiveMQ.

Pratik Patel, AT&T

ActiveMQ in Action is all you'll need to master ActiveMQ. It starts from the anatomy of a JMS message and moves quickly through connectors, message persistence, authentication, and authorization. By following a running example (a stock portfolio app), you'll pick up the best practices distilled by the authors from their long and deep involvement with this technology.
