Apache ActiveMQ 2009 in Numbers



So Claus started this with his blog on Apache Camel - 2009 in numbers - so I'd thought it would be interesting to do the same with ActiveMQ (does not include ActiveMQ C#, C++ or Stomp sub-projects). The numbers are not as good as Camel - but still good:

Number of posts to the ActiveMQ user forum in 2009: 4440
Number of posts to the ActiveMQ dev forum in 2009:  4447
Number of commits in 2009:  2893
Number of downloads 2009: - hard to know (because of Apache mirrors) - but about 60k a month

Number of tickets created in 2009 - 505 (295 of these are resolved)
Number of resolved issues in 2009 - 467

We didn't quiet manage to resolve more issues than were raised - but this is because as a community, until very recently we have been very lax at accepting issues - so a lot of issues raised don't even have the version, let alone the environment or a test case! If a test case is attached - we can usually resolve an issue very quickly - its reproducing the issue that always takes the time.

Impressive numbers! so what targets / hopes do you have for this year coming?

Main short term aim will be to prune the issues list - there seems to a lot of duplicates.

Also - there's some good stuff coming up with ActiveMQ 6 - due out sometime this year.

my personal experience with AMQ issues is somewhat different to that with Camel. Here's one example (https://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-2488), where the issue is clear, it's repeatable, a solution and patch are attached, and it's been totally ignored. :(

I know it's just one example, but surely this is low hanging fruit in terms of issue resolution.

Hi Darren,

it's not ignored. I just scheduled it for 5.3.1.

Cheers,
Dejan

It's fixed now. Thanks for pointing to it.
