ActiveMQ startup problems on Windows

We’ve chosen to use ActiveMQ for our enterprise Java application (together with some other interesting tools like Apache Camel and Ivy) and I started to migrate the old code which have been using Glassfish stack to new environment on my dev machine. When integrating the Apache ActiveMQ everything went smooth including the installation and setting up the windows services for it. Even the service seemed to starting up correctly however it showed up that its actually not running (the telnet on service port proved its not up).

After checking logs in apache-activemq-5.5.0\data\activemq.log I’ve found out following strange error:

As the error actually doesn’t say what kind of temp directory is missing, it had to use the google and after a while I’ve found a fix. You can either disable the administration server which is intergated in ActiveMQ through Jetty or create two directories which is Jetty complaining about.

apache-activemq-5.5.0\bin\win32\temp\
apache-activemq-5.5.0\bin\win32\work\

Enjoy!
