Apache ActiveMQ Setup


The ActiveMQ broker runs as a separate process from the Germain Enterprise server. It is essential to start the broker beforehand to enable communication between the Germain Enterprise and Germain Node servers. The broker acts as a messaging intermediary, facilitating the exchange of messages and data between these components. Therefore, ensure that the ActiveMQ broker is running and accessible before starting the Germain Enterprise and Germain Node servers


ActiveMQ Classic 5.17 or later is supported.
