ActiveMQ vs Azure Service Bus: What are the differences?
Developers describe ActiveMQ as "A message broker written in Java together with a full JMS client". 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. Apache ActiveMQ is released under the Apache 2.0 License. On the other hand, Azure Service Bus is detailed as "*Reliable cloud messaging as a service (MaaS) *". It is a cloud messaging system for connecting apps and devices across public and private clouds.
