Bonka's Queue is an HTTP-based message queue that relates to JMS or AMQP much in the same way that CouchDB relates to traditional DBMSes. That is to say that it tries to solve a different (much simpler) problem and avoid all the extra overhead associated with more "proper" solutions.
The Clacks Framework enables implementators to abstractly manage infrastructure entities, such as users, groups, machines and structure items. These are freely defineable and mappable to various backends like LDAP or MongoDB. Additionally it can handle joined clients, collect inventory data, and manage these clients in various ways. All information, API, and events are exposed on an AMQP message bus, and can be used by shell scripts, Web GUIs, etc.
