Yes of course, you're right I meant ActiveMQ.
A year or two back ActiveMQ used to leak file descriptors and memory...
However, it has moved on since that evaluation was written and is being used
successfully in the BBC. It is part of our department's infrastructure
(World Service).
IIRC it did take a while for Ops to get the right configuration but I
thought I'd let you know it is definitely a goer.

Cheers, Peter
