ActiveMQ vs Protobuf: What are the differences?
ActiveMQ: 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; Protobuf: Google's data interchange format. Protocol buffers are Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler.
ActiveMQ belongs to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack, while Protobuf can be primarily classified under "Serialization Frameworks".
ActiveMQ and Protobuf are both open source tools. Protobuf with 35.6K GitHub stars and 9.66K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ActiveMQ with 1.51K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks.
Intuit, Wix, and SoFi are some of the popular companies that use ActiveMQ, whereas Protobuf is used by LendUp, Betaout, and OneSky. ActiveMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 33 company stacks & 17 developers stacks; compared to Protobuf, which is listed in 25 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
