Subject Re: Nested MapMessage
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 04:26:29 GMT

There are a lot of real-world applications that need the ability to send
structured data via JMS. 

For example, take an application that wants to publish a portfolio of bonds
(or stocks - take your pick). The logical way to do it would be to have a
portfolio container message with zero or more (nested) bond messages. The
alternative, breaking a portfolio into a series of bond messages, is VERY
cumbersome and requires that the consumer reconstruct the portfolio.

This is but one instance of a real-world need to publish arbitrary message
structures. Nested MapMessage addresses this need directly and elegantly.
