Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-4165) Remove pure master/slave functionality
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 18:55:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMQ-4165?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13526644#comment-13526644
] 

SL commented on AMQ-4165:
-------------------------

The functionnality provided by this mode had its issues
(such the one i stumbled upon https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMQ-3688 )
But it was exposed as a valid option in the documentation until recently (and not completly
removed yet) ; cutting it like that is harsh. None of the few "alternatives" can handle the
same use cases, and are expecting a very different set of requirements (such as a database
or a shared filesystem).
Is there any plan to complete the amq options in this area or is the project dropping the
ball on HA ?

> Pure master/slave was introduced over 7 years ago a means of getting a tick box for high
availability. It is severely limited, in that only one slave is supported, a slave must be
running before the master and no attempt is made at synchronising a new slave.
> Unfortunately, pure master/slave is sometimes used as an option by ActiveMQ users, unaware
of the dangers of doing so, at extreme risk to themselves and others.
> Pure master/slave is the spawn of hell and should be removed forthwith.
