Re: First configuration steps
If you haven't yet installed ActiveMQ, good information is at
For security, that depends a little on how much you want to secure the
broker and what technologies you're using (for example, do you want to
secure the web console? authenticate producers and consumers? integrate
with LDAP?), but some useful links are
http://activemq.apache.org/cached-ldap-authorization-module.html. The true
MVP is, of course, to do none of those, but the appropriateness of how much
security is needed and what kind depends heavily on how you plan to use and
expose the broker and on your organization's approach to security and risk,
so there's no one-size-fits-all answer here.
For things to make sure you think about, I'd focus on protecting the broker
from being sent too much data (
http://activemq.apache.org/producer-flow-control.html) and on how to handle
slow consumers (http://activemq.apache.org/slow-consumer-handling.html).
