ActiveMQ vs Apache RocketMQ: 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, Apache RocketMQ is detailed as "Open source distributed messaging and streaming data platform". Apache RocketMQ is a distributed messaging and streaming platform with low latency, high performance and reliability, trillion-level capacity and flexible scalability.

ActiveMQ and Apache RocketMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

ActiveMQ and Apache RocketMQ are both open source tools. It seems that Apache RocketMQ with 8.25K GitHub stars and 4.23K forks on GitHub has more adoption than ActiveMQ with 1.5K GitHub stars and 1.05K GitHub forks.
