Real-World Messaging with ActiveMQ

"So you're considering a production deployment of ActiveMQ. I'm sure you have some questions. Such as: How can the broker be clustered to improve scalability or guarantee availability? How should clients be configured for failover? How do we monitor individual messages, queue depths, or other broker statistics? What's the best approach if a producer or consumer may be down for some time (e.g. a maintenance window)? What kind of hardware is needed for a throughput of ## messages per second? What are the security options? What's the real difference between persistence strategies? What's the best way to connect non-Java clients? In this talk we'll address all these questions and more (bring a few of your own!). You'll walk away with the knowledge you need to be confident putting ActiveMQ into production."
