Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-4072) RESTful HTTP interface responses do not contain a correlation ID header
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 21:57:07 GMT


Stephen Vincent commented on AMQ-4072:

I realize that the open source community relies on contributors and I should contribute more
than this jira.  My management sets my priorities, and like most, I have more on my plate
than I have time for.  I do appreciate the help I received, and I hope I can contribute some
time in the future.  I sincerely do wish to.

The goal of this comment is provide more information regarding my use case.  The main purpose
of this jira, is to report that a message's JMSCorrelationID header field, does not flow back
along with the response headers.  The attached java test illustrates that issue.  I realize
that beginning with 5.7, message "properties" will flow back as headers in the response. 
However, the JMSCorrelationID does not because it is not property.  My use case hinges on
the customers that expect my application to be able to obtain the correlation ID.  Given that
I have chosen to implement my application using the HTTP interface, my application is currently
unable to obtain the JMSCorrelationID.

Aside from getting the JMSCorrelationID in the response to a GET request, another use case
involves POSTing a message that contains a correlation ID.  Using an url-encoded content-type,
or specifying the JMSCorrelationID in a query parameter are two says to post a message with
a JMSCorrelationID.  However, both of those mechanisms have limitations.

In one use case, see a customer using a client that is able to set the JMSCorrelationID when
putting a message on the queue, and then expecting my client application to obtain it when
 getting the message off of the queue.  I also see a use case where I want to post many messages
containing different correlation IDs, all from a single connection to the broker.

> When using a RESTful HTTP client to GET a message that has a correlation ID, the correlation
ID is not sent as a header in the response from the broker.  This inhibits my RESTful HTTP
client from performing request-response.
