Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-499) Support for delayed/scheduled delivery of messages.
Date Fri, 29 Feb 2008 15:31:18 GMT


Dan Checkoway commented on AMQ-499:

I'd like to add my name to the list of folks who would greatly appreciate this feature.  The
requirement on my end is to support queueing a message that will get handled at some fixed
point in time in the future.

As it stands now, I have to hack around this by having multiple queues, each dedicated to
delaying a certain amount of time.  i.e. a 1-minute, 5-minute, 30-minute, and 60-minute queue.
 Separate threads periodically poll these queues, at a frequency respective with the intended
delay.  If a message needs to be delayed 4:23 in the future, first it goes into the 60-minute
queue, and bounces there 4 times...then into the 5-minute queue 4x, then the 1-minute queue
3x.  etc.  Ugly!!

Anyway, if you could implement the "TimeToDeliver" type feature in ActiveMQ it would be much
