Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-5478) REST endpoint creates topic instead of queue
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2015 02:33:34 GMT


Mark Frazier commented on AMQ-5478:

According to the code, if NO type parameter is specified, the default will be topic, UNLESS
the servlet has been initialized with an init param in the web.xml file. See code snippet

    protected boolean isTopic(HttpServletRequest request) {
        String typeText = request.getParameter(typeParameter);
        if (typeText == null) {
            return defaultTopicFlag;
        return typeText.equalsIgnoreCase("topic");

To change this default, you can do this in the webapps/demo/WEB-INF/web.xml file:


However, you are correct. The documentation is a bit misleading and should point this out.
I will see if I can do that.

>                 URL:
>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: webconsole
>    Affects Versions: 5.10.0
>            Reporter: Paul Smith
>            Priority: Minor
> This is _possibly_ simply a Documentation bug, but I was testing the REST endpoints via
the documentation here:
> When I first tried to post a simple message to a queue (and this queue didn't exist yet)
I used this script:
> {noformat}
> $ curl -d "body=message" -XPOST http://admin:admin@localhost:8161/api/message/queue/orders/input
> {noformat}
> The above is mostly based on the documentation.  I was surprised to find no queue created
by looking at the web console, but i _*did*_ see a Topic created called 'queue.orders.input'
and it contained 1 message (odd because there's no consumers defined).
> After deleting the topic I then tried the 'other format' of the URL:
> {noformat}
>  curl -d "body=message" -XPOST http://admin:admin@localhost:8161/api/message/orders.input?type=queue
> {noformat}
> This does create a Queue of name 'orders.input' as one would expect.
> I'm not exactly clear then from the documentation where in the URL one is defining it
as a queue using the former syntax.  The URL in the documentation sort of _implies_ that the
'queue' prefix of the URL is creating a queue named 'orders.input' but it doesn't turn out
that way.
> So either this is a bug, or the documentation needs tweaking.
