ActiveMQ

  •        0

Apache ActiveMQ is the most popular and powerful open source messaging and Integration Patterns provider. Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4.

Its features include:

  • Supports a variety of Cross Language Clients and Protocols from Java, C, C++, C#, Ruby, Perl, Python, PHP
    • OpenWire for high performance clients in Java, C, C++, C#
    • Stomp support so that clients can be written easily in C, Ruby, Perl, Python, PHP, ActionScript/Flash, Smalltalk to talk to ActiveMQ as well as any other popular Message Broker
  • full support for the Enterprise Integration Patterns both in the JMS client and the Message Broker
  • Supports many advanced features such as Message Groups, Virtual Destinations, Wildcards and Composite Destinations
  • Fully supports JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4 with support for transient, persistent, transactional and XA messaging
  • Spring Support so that ActiveMQ can be easily embedded into Spring applications and configured using Spring's XML configuration mechanism
  • Tested inside popular J2EE servers such as Geronimo, JBoss 4, GlassFish and WebLogic
    • Includes JCA 1.5 resource adaptors for inbound & outbound messaging so that ActiveMQ should auto-deploy in any J2EE 1.4 compliant server
  • Supports pluggable transport protocols such as in-VM, TCP, SSL, NIO, UDP, multicast, JGroups and JXTA transports
  • Supports very fast persistence using JDBC along with a high performance journal
  • Designed for high performance clustering, client-server, peer based communication
  • REST API to provide technology agnostic and language neutral web based API to messaging
  • Ajax to support web streaming support to web browsers using pure DHTML, allowing web browsers to be part of the messaging fabric
  • CXF and Axis Support so that ActiveMQ can be easily dropped into either of these web service stacks to provide reliable messaging
  • Can be used as an in memory JMS provider, ideal for unit testing JMS

RabbitMQ - Robust messaging for applications


RabbitMQ is a messaging broker - an intermediary for messaging. It gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received. It features include reliability, high availability, Clustering and Federation. RabbitMQ ships with an easy-to use management UI that allows you to monitor and control every aspect of your message broker. There are RabbitMQ clients for almost any language you can think of.

ZeroMQ - Messaging Library


The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

Celery - Distributed Task Queue


Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well. The execution units, called tasks, are executed concurrently on a single or more worker servers using multiprocessing, Eventlet, or gevent. Tasks can execute asynchronously (in the background) or synchronously (wait until ready).

Hornetq - Enterprise messaging


HornetQ is the new ultra high performance enterprise grade messaging system from JBoss community. It is a multi-protocol, embeddable, very high performance, clustered, asynchronous messaging system. It offers server replication and automatic client failover to eliminate lost or duplicated messages in case of server failure. It also provides a comprehensive management API to manage & monitor servers.

Fix8 - FIX (Financial Information eXchange Protocol) Framework


A fresh approach to FIX (Financial Information eXchange Protocol). Statically compile your FIX xml schema and quickly build your FIX application on top. With low latency performance in mind, this framework is designed to streamline the development of custom FIX interfaces. Using one of the standard FIX schemas you can have a FIX client or server up and running very quickly.

Netty - Event-driven Asynchronous Network Application Framework


Netty is an asynchronous event-driven network application framework for rapid development of maintainable high performance protocol servers & clients. Netty is a NIO client server framework which enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients. It greatly simplifies and streamlines network programming such as TCP and UDP socket server.

Citadel


Citadel is a collaboration suite (messaging and groupware). It provides support for Email, Calendaring/Scheduling, Address books, Bulletin boards, Mailing List Server, Instant Messaging, Wiki, Multiple domain support.

Sharq Server - A flexible rate limited queueing system


SHARQ is a flexible, open source, rate limited queuing system. Based on the Leaky Bucket Algorithm, SHARQ lets you create queues dynamically and update their rate limits in real time. SHARQ consists of two components - the core component and the server component. The SHARQ core is built on Redis, using Python and Lua, and the SHARQ Server is built using Flask and Gevent and talks HTTP.

libevent - an event notification library


The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout has been reached. It is meant to replace the asynchronous event loop found in event-driven network servers.
