ActiveMQ vs Kafka Manager: 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, Kafka Manager is detailed as "A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo". This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster.

ActiveMQ and Kafka Manager can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

ActiveMQ and Kafka Manager are both open source tools. Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ActiveMQ with 1.5K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, ActiveMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 33 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to Kafka Manager, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
