About The Book
ActiveMQ In Action is for software architects, developers, and integrators interested in enterprise message queuing in general and ActiveMQ in particular. This book is designed to serve as part introduction and part reference for both beginners and experienced application developers. It begins with an introduction to ActiveMQ and a high-level overview of JMS followed by a progressively deeper dive into ActiveMQ as the book advances.
Prerequisites for the Source Code
To build the source code, the following items are required:
- Sun Java 1.5 or greater
- Maven 2.2.x or greater
- A broadband internet connection
Building the Source Code
Building the example source code is actually quite straighforward. From the command line, simply run the following Maven command:
$ mvn clean install
This command will automatically determine and download all dependencies for the build from the necessary remote Maven repostories , compile and package the source code, run the tests and install the resulting artifacts into your local Maven repository (located in ~/.m2/repository/). The build artifacts can be found in the target directories of each project (examples/target/, examples/chapter8/target/).
If you want to do everything except run the tests, just use the maven.test.skip system property to disable the test execution like so:
$ mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true clean install
Use of this propery this will execute every build phase except test execution. The build artifacts can be found in the target directories of each project (examples/target/, examples/chapter8/target/).

The ActiveMQ In Action book was authored using DocBook XML and was processed using the Docbkx Tools Maven plug-in on Mac OS X. Other items that went into the book include MacBook Pros, Google Docs, GMail, Foonz (until it shut down), FreeConferenceCall.com, barking dogs during conference calls, company acquisitions, lots and lots of music, loud construction next door, sleepless nights, too much work on airplanes, and plain old exhaustion.
We hope you enjoy it!
