Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-1453) Synchronous response from REST API
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2007 13:38:23 GMT
Synchronous response from REST API

                 Key: AMQ-1453
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Dejan Bosanac
             Fix For: 5.0.0
         Attachments: activemq-web-lingo.patch

In some situations it could be very useful to use REST API in the "synchronous mode".

I've implemented this in the following manner:

If the "sync" header is set to the POST request the module will use Lingo project to perform
request/response action with a given timeout.
The timeout value could be set through the "replyTimeout" servlet config parameter. A default
value is 1000 (1s).
In case that response comes back in a specified time, the message will be returned as a response
body. Timout exception will be ignored (maybe this could be configurable too?) so it will
return OK status with empty response body (just as it is now) in case of timeout.
In case that "sync" header is not set the API behaves the same as now.

I've considered a few options for this implementation, but Lingo in the end seemed the best
solution. It is not too heavy and it could be potentially used for other stuff in the future.
One thing I would like to see improved in Lingo in the future is support for sending a message
with persistency, priority and time to live parameters (new "request" method signature). Also,
it depends on old version of amq which must be excluded in dependency declarations since it
breaks the build. I could implement these improvments if you are interested.

I think this is quite a useful feature. I'm using it in a current project, but I would like
if it could be included in a activemq-web module in the future. So, if anyone have any ides
how some of these stuff could be implemented better or have some fresh ideas, please let me
