Roadmap Apache ActiveMQ, HornetQ and Apache ActiveMQ Artemis

HornetQ was the built in Message Broker in JBoss EAP 6.

Red Hat bought FuseSource in 2012, the company behind ActiveMQ commercial support, and rebranded the product JBoss A-MQ server. This left Red Hat with two competing Message Brokers.

In 2014 Red Hat and the HornetQ community decided to join efforts with the ActiveMQ community and the Apache ActiveMQ Artemis was created.

The current Red Hat JBoss A-MQ releases, at the time of 7.0.0, was still based on the original ActiveMQ project. It is expected a future release will be based on the Artemis project. This future release will feature the external appearance of the current A-MQ product (administration interfaces based on Fabric, protocol supported, and native client libraries) but with many of the internals from HornetQ (asynchronous I/O engine and high performance journaled disk storage).

The JBoss EAP 7 is shipped with the Apache ActiveMQ Artemis.
