Subject Re: [Spam: 5.0] daft question(s) about network of brokers
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 09:46:25 GMT

how do i embed the broker without specifying a broker name?  the embedded
broker always has a brokername = hostname, doesn't it?  if i use 'vm://'
then it doesn't seem to embed the broker properly, my MDBs don't read the
destinations any more.

am i even configuring this correctly?  i want a 'network' of jboss instances
so that I can send a message to a topic with a multicast (or rendezvous)
broker url, and an mdb on each jboss instance listening to the topic will
see the message.  does that make sense?

it seemed to work correctly earlier today, but now it goes into some
infinite loop of bouncing messages back and forth between the brokers.
