This morning while having my morning coffee I watched this video presentation on my iPad.

Connecting Applications Everywhere with ActiveMQ / JBoss A-MQ

It's a 45 minute presentation by Rob Davies, who is working in the JBoss Fuse team. In Rob's talk he gives a rundown of ActiveMQ and JBoss A-MQ and how its multi-protocol support enables the 'internet of things' by connecting anything together. In the last 10 to 15 minutes of the talk, Rob dives a live demo (see screenshot), where he is using a micro-controller to capture the sound and send the data over wifi to his laptop using MQTT.  He then bridges over AMPQ and eventually to an HTML5 client using WebSocket.

It's a really good presentation and demo. It was a great start to my day watching this presentation.

If you notice from the demo, Rob uses the Apache ActiveMQ 5.8.0 release out of box.

The video is available from dzone and you can watch it without registration or any kind of hazzle.
