ActiveMQ vs DistributedLog: 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, DistributedLog is detailed as "High-performance replicated log service, by Twitter". DistributedLog (DL) is a high-performance, replicated log service, offering durability, replication and strong consistency as essentials for building reliable distributed systems.
ActiveMQ and DistributedLog can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.
ActiveMQ and DistributedLog are both open source tools. DistributedLog with 2.25K GitHub stars and 283 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ActiveMQ with 1.5K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks.
